And you can load it up pretty good. The Backyard Bonanza we have is 1,400 sq in of rack space. There are 4 trays, that cook very even. You do not need to turn or rotate anything when cooking. We have had 20 racks of ribs, 3 brisket flats and two butts on at one time with a little room left over.

Only complaint is even temps. To keep temps from spiking I need to add small amounts of coals every 1 1/2 hours rather than loading the box full.

I've got plenty of pics if you'd like them.
Since it wouldn't be my comp pit, I wouldn't mind having to load the coals. How efficient is it other than that? How many bags of charcoal would I need per 12 hour cook?

I did see they have an insulated model which I bet will provide longer stable cooks on less fuel.

Do you use a stoker or Guru with the one you have?

I also talked with one of the local distributors and he has floated me a fair price on a new backyar bonanza and a very good price on a used trailer mount bonanza.
