I have space envy, 1 butt or 2 racks of ribs is all my medium will hold unless i get creative.

Go with the biggest you can afford. The difference in coal may be pennies per cook, not worth screwing with.

For a cook this would be my max for each type of food
Eight large chicken breasts
Two pork butts
Three summer sausages largest would be 17” length. Then two smaller one on each side. (2.5”diameter)
One 20lbs clod
About 15 chicken legs.
I did a 17lbs Turkey but that was too big J
2 lbs. of raw weight jerky with a hanging rack.
I love the Large but for a party or large family I would go XL. I hope what I have loaded on my large helps you
