What kind of smoker do you all use? I have been using my Backwoods Competitor and the large BGE. Also if you could add another smoker, replace one or just to add to your wish list what smoker would it be?

Two drums and a kettle. Works great for us.

For which sanctioning bodies?

Some require only small amounts of meat; others quite a bit... For example, for MBN most will have 2 VERY large smokers, 1 for the whole hog, and the other for the other 200+-lbs of meat needed for ribs and shoulders.

For KCBS we use the Lang 1160 (which is an early model 84) and cook everything on it. For MBN I'll use 2 of them.

I'm not a "big time" competitor and only do one or two comps a year. I cook solely on 4 18.5" WSMs.

I'm using my homemade insulated reverse flow stickburner & a 26.75" Weber OTG.

Stump stretch and a Lang 60 would be a nice set up.I got the stretch just saving for the Lang:)

I use a bbqguru tallboy, and a large Egg at most contests. I would like to add a guru Onyx oven at some point.

Most we've done in a year is 6 (2009 &2010) We use a 22"WSM, and 18, and an 18.5 kettle

Brisket and chicken are done on the 22, ribs and butts on the 18, and breakfast, dinner, etc on the kettle

Happen to have any pics of the insulated reverse flow. We just sold our 250 gal. reverse flow and was thinking of building another one insulated also.
