I'm looking for a cooker to use in Des Moines, IA on June 5-8. I was wondering if any one here had something sizable I could borrow. This isn't for a competition, but I would like a competition cooker if that makes sense. If you are heading out for a competition on June 8, I'm sure I could work it into the schedule to to return it to you on Thursday night, June 7. Not to turn this begger into a chooser, but some kind of vertical (FEC, Stump's, BWS) would be ideal. Please let me know if any one's able to help a brethren out.

Thanks,

dmp

I have a cto you are welcome to. I don't think I have a comp that weekend. Even if I did I won't be using it. Consider it yours for the weekend if you choose!

All I have that's up & running are a Traeger 075, WSM & a UDS. Welcome to them if you want.

While the other offers are great ... I will offer to stand around and drink beer while you cook on my Kingfisher.

Thank you all for the offers. The CTO might be the winner so far. Not that there's anything wrong with the others, but I'm gonna be cooking for 250 over a course of two days, and will be on the clock. Need to figure out the "throughput" of four racks that bad boy...One thing's for sure, whoever helps me out with this gets some Kräftig and a cigar!

What's a southern boy like yourself cooking a event up in our neck of the woods?

It's a work thing. They want some one to cook pork, and they asked if I'd be interested. They do this every year, and in the past had it catered, but now I'll be the caterer. Gives me an excuse to travel for the event. It'll be fun because the day after I finish I fly home and get ready to leave for our local Sam's Club event, but such is the life.

I was thinking, and I'm gonna be in town next month too for a few days. Any one interested in trying to to do a meet up or some such? I'll be staying in West Des Moines, and really wanna hit Smokey D's while I'm there. Lemme know!

I'd be happy to head out to Darren and Shad's for a meal when you are in town.
