I've only been to 2 comps, but I saw plenty of them there. As far as I know, Harry Soo only cooks on WSM's, and they're not much different than an UDS (mainly just more expensive).

I think you would get better answers if you mentioned the type of competitions

For KCBS a UDS or two or three would be fine. For MIM, no way.

It's not what you cook on. It's how good you can cook. It would be awesome for you to go out and beat the teams with the fancy cookers.

One of our cookers (if we need it) this coming weekend is a UDS. We will most likely use it for our chicken as I am not 100% comfortable cooking everything on our Fat Boy yet.

Memphis in May. MBN (Memphis BBQ Network) runs comps based in the same rules in different parts of the US.

Do you guys think you could get away with having only 2 UDS for a standard comp of Brisket, chicken, ribs and butt??

I don't see why UDS wouldn't be successful in comps. We use WSMs in comps, but those UDSs look pretty bad@ss. We're in the process of putting one together ourselves. We'll probably go the Big Poppa setup route...it had me at the beer bottle opener.

Slap Yo' Daddy does all 4 meats on a single 18.5" WSM, so I think 2 UDSs would be fine if one is determined enough.

I thought I saw him have at least 2 or 3 on BBQ Pitmasters. I would think if you were to only have one you would at least have to have a couple racks in each UDS. I'm thinking about trying to enter into my first competition this year and I'm thinking one UDS is not going to be enough. (However I'm really working the fiance to let me buy a Backwoods Chubby!!!)
