Hey guys. Just getting an idea of what types of smokers everyone is using in comps. Thanks

FEC 100's are popular, as are Backwoods, Spicewine and Jambo. That is about a $9000 range of prices.........

We had been running four 18" WSMs, but we found this past week that we could wedge the 22" WSM into the van so we used that and 2 of the 18s.

Backwoods Fatboy for all meats at last two cookoffs. May start using my Weber 22.5 OTG for chicken though.

I'm just getting into it, but I use 2 WSM 22's and now I proud to say that I'm gonna break out an UDS this weekend at a comp to go along with them.

Tucker at comps. WSM at the house

Two UDS's (one for pork and one for brisket) and a Traeger (for chicken and ribs). I just started using the UDS's in comps this year and have been really happy with the results.

05-10-2011, 06:29 AM
We use a Backwoods Fatboy and have been using Weber Kettles for Chicken.

In Virginia you have a few different sanctioning bodies, with very different answers to the question that you're asking. KCBS requires much less meat (generally, depending on things) than does competing fully in MBN. With KCBS you'll see most anything, from a couple WSM's or even UDS's, BGE's, up to the larger offsets, Stumps, etc. In MBN you'll see large offsets, sometimes multiples of these per team, and/or multiple large Stumps, etc. Every once in a while, in MBN, if competing only in something like Ribs you'll see someone with multiple BGE's, etc.

Lang 60D here and a 22.5 Kettle.

My suggestion would be to find a contest near you and just go walk around and ask questions! EVERY team likes to talk about what they cook on and why. You'll see a wide range of pits, that have a cost of $100 to $15k+!

Stump's, and introducing a Lang 48 into the mix this weekend.

05-10-2011, 02:10 PM
2 18.5" WSMs with the Pro-Q stackers and 2 Pro-Q Frontiers. Used to cook on 4 18.5" WSMs, but the Pro-Q's do a good enough job on ribs and chicken and they are SOOOO much easier to move around.

05-10-2011, 02:11 PM
Superior SS2 & Primo XL. Both Guru'd.
