lets say you were wanting to build something like a BWS Comp Hog clone.. what would be the size of the chamber that you would want? comp scene only.. so MBN, 6-9 shoulders and a 15-200# pig... 6' x about 2.5-3'? too big, not enough?

I've got a Gen 2 Party ordered, gonna pick up a G2 chubby, and build a new "large" cooker.. (or at least plan the hell out of it...). it will not be towable, i want to push and shove in the back of a closed trailer..

anyway.. thoughts?

I cook a 200# pig (no head) on a 3' x 5' rack an it is tight sometimes. Just to give you an idea.

I have a BWS Pro Comp Hog I can give you dimensions next week once I am back in Pa.

For shoulders, I would probably want two cookers, each with a total of 72"x24" of space. Break that up into racks however you want, but I'd give each rack at least 7" of clearance, so if you're using angle frame, that's 8" between rails. If you insist on doing it on one cooker, I'd probably want a total of 128"x24". Same clearance.
