Humphreys Pint too small? anyone got one?
heres 3 racks of spares on a 20x22" rack. in order to do 4, a 2nd grate is needed. any tighter spacing and airflow suffers to much

Looking to start spending some of your "hard earned" Smitty?

Can I ask why you are looking to do all that food at once in one cooker (looking to start competing or catering )? Your UDS could be used if you need all that food for a single gathering. My other question would be if you are willing to do your ribs in a rack. You might be able to get creative that way.

Just doing some research -- if and when I can get a Cabinet smoker I would want to be able to do 2 -2-4 year if needed- like family reunion or work event or something - UDS would be on Chicken Duty - but still be small enough to reasonably cook one brisket or 1 to 2 butts.

So if I was looking today I think it would be between Humphreys Pint and the Backwoods Party Extended.

Would the right rib rack allow four racks on one shelf in some of these smokers?

I would think that the rib rack would be able to stand up on a shelf at ~ the same height as the butts, so yeah I would think so.

Yes, if the grate spacing is right.

I'm doing a custom build on an uninsulated vertical cabinet (client wanted something less expensive) right now (headed over to my shop to fire up the mig after a fnal cup of coffee) and we settled on 3 cooking grates with 8" spacing so briskets & butts would have plenty of of room but with angled rib racks we could easily load 4 racks of spares, maybe 5.

As mentioned previously and you already know this spacing and air flow is important. Finally, the spare ribs I buy come 9 to a case, the SL trimmed ones come 12 to a case; I generally think in terms of being able to cook a case at a time.

The Weber 6469 is 4.5" tall, but spacing needed would depend on what cut of ribs you are going to put in there. For baby backs or St. Louis cut, I would think 6" would be enough but if you are going to put full spares in that is going to bump up to about 8" at least.

You want 8in clearance based on my experience if you are going put them in a holder.I found out the hard way even with baby backs or St. Louis 6in can get really tight depending on the angle of the rib rack you use. Those smaller rack are still over 5in wide and on occasion over 5.5 at the widest point these are my preference http://www.tejassmokers.com/options.htm they hold up and the angle they sit at give you a little breathing room.

My experience is with the Superior SS2. Not your exact setup, but I have two large briskets (19 & 14 lbs) in full pans staggered and two butts in half pans; as you can see, plenty of room to spare. Easily fits 2 briskets w/o pans per shelf, 4 butts (8-10 lbs) and 4 racks of trimmed spares.

Also turns out great Q, Brethren discount = $100.00, full of "standard" features - go check out Peep's unit if you're close to him.

Thanks for that pic Fat Woody - ya I'm within a hour of Peeps - I need to go check it out.


I emailed Humphreys on the pint for info and here's what I learned

"We will have more pictures available within the next couple of weeks on the new Pint. The Cooking Chamber dimensions are 15.25" wide, 22.5" deep, 25" tall and has 9 rack slides approx. 2.3 inches apart. You can also use the tops of other slides that are in there for more rack locations if you need a little bit more room on one rack and less on another. The above dimensions are for a drop in water pan configuration, a slide out version is 2" taller but has one less rack slide."

I forgot to ask if it's available in Burnt Orange..........

Let's assume a rack of spares is about 8 inches wide and 1-3/4 thick, you should be able to build a rack with 3" spacing (to make sure you have good circulation around the ribs) at about a 45 degree angle and get 4 racks on and 18" wide grate with 4 inch high clearance. The rib racks I've made have been simple 3/16-1/4 rod, bent & welded to a little flat stock for a base and just sit them on the cooking grate. If you were to fab them up so they were put in the racks in lieu of the grate you would have more room to adjust the angle and spacing to make sure you had good circulation. All that said, I see restaurants overlap ribs all the time; probably not good for the look of a comp rib but they still eat pretty good

I would definitely go with the pint for what you want to cook. I have a Battle box which is smaller than the the pint, I cook one brisket(on 1 rack), 2 butts(on 1 rack) and 3 half pans of chicken thighs(on 2 racks) with plenty of air flow needed for everything to cook. With the pint you'll have no problem cooking the 2 briskets, 2 butts and 4 racks of ribs. My teammate has a pint and he has cooked 18 racks of ribs at one time with awesome results. I'll bet you'll be able to cook 10-12 hours on one load of charcoal. In fact I have done it on my battlebox!!!! I'm telling you, you will not be disappointed with the pint.

Though it's not the exact scenarios you requested, I have a few pics of some cooks on my Assassin28 that are close. Threw in a couple of shots of some yard birds as well.
