Backwoods Gater owner here.





Only option I would suggest are the extra grate rails. I hate sacrificing grate space to the pit thermo.

The 2007 Jack World Champion cooked all 4 meats on a Fatboy and continued to do so up until 2012 when went to a Competitor. So I'd say it's a pretty good cooker.

A hacksaw takes care of that pit probe problem. Its a Backwoods, You dont need a Pit Probe! Set the guru to a temp, it'll be there.

Great looking rigs there; thanks!

I'm going back and forth on the Fatboy and the Gater. I like the extra space of the Gater, but I like the Fatboy water pan. I'll have to check into the Gater options and see if I can upgrade it.

Which is one of the main reasons I'm now looking at a Fatboy. I could get a Gater with a welded-in water pan but that adds even more to the cost.

Going to pull the trigger on this soon...

I love my Party!
+1. I extended the sides and got a little over 8 hours this past weekend. Running about 260 degrees with a guru.

Remember, it is always better to ask forgiveness than permission!!!

Just went through my third summer with my new Fatboy and love every minute of cooking on it. I do not compete but love the space to be able to cook for friends and family.

I just placed an order with Kevin at Purple Pork Masters for a customized Fatboy. Very exciting!
