I believe if I stagger them left - right - left I could fit 15 butts in the cooker with a drip pan.

With rib racks I have cooked 30 racks of ribs at one time.

Even with an 8 pound load of charcoal, the unit heats up fast and recovers very quickly when the door is opened and closed... Runs about 10 - 12 hours depending on your charcoal.

I have found that the cooker likes lump charcoal, it burns hotter and smoother with lump than it does with briquettes.
