A Fatboy is a shortened competitor, has 5 racks instead of 8. You can cook 4 whole shoulders fairly comfortably, verses cooking 8 in a competitor. That being said the fatboy is a very consistent solid cooker, with better heat consistency top to bottom than a competitor. We use a fatboy for preliminary ribs (Memphis BBQ Network contests) and a competitor for shoulders. Other than the Comp Hog, the Fatboy is my favorite cooker-consistent, great control (we don't use a guru on it-we do on the other 3 backwoods we have), ability to impart as much or little smoke as needed, quick temp control by using amount of fuel and air intakes. Great cooker.
