Although I haven't done it I don't see a reason you couldn't fit 3 after buying the extra grates. Should fit 2 easily out of the box.

I'd definitely consider that. Tell me, how is the smokey flavour compared to a stick burner. Is it close?

Surprised at all the negativity around this unit. The only person that has one is cranking out killer looking food. Nothing wrong with a $500 unit even if it is not built to last a lifetime. It might be the unit that finally convinces someone to take the leap and start into this crazy hobby.

If I were to go the pooper route, I would get this rather than a pellet pooper.

I'd say its more comparable to what you would get from a weber. Once the chunks combust they do burn pretty clean.

I'm not sure it's really negativity.

Straight up? Masterbuilt has something of a reputation- warranted or not. (cheap, cheap, cheap)

This cooker is a different type of beast entirely- nothing quite like it. (as far as I know)

The "old school" cooker owners (1/4" or nuthing- bigger is better, etc..) are understandably skeptical - this might even apply to pellet cooker owners, they are now part of the "real cooker owners" group.

First wave of pellet cookers were probably given the same treatment. I'm in NO way saying the Masterbuilt is the same sort of game changer as pellets - but still could be a thing.

Oh I 100% agree with what you've said. I knew I was taking a chance but so far it works great. Like said before durability can only be proven with time. If something goes wrong with mine it'll be posted for sure.

Same. It is a pretty big leap in cooker tech, IMO. Nothing like it on the market, and the price is very reasonable. I don't expect it to outlast the nuclear holocaust like a Yoder, but I bet with reasonable care, you will get around 5 years out of it.

Did a 9lb brisket yesterday. Seasoned with kosmos hot cow cover and fresh cracked black. Used royal oak lump with cherry and hickory wood mixed in. Lol didn't get a chance to slice because I fell asleep during the rest. Will cut into it for dinner tonight.

Just saying, when I saw "gf" my thought was 'girl friend'. Damn, I need to understand BBQ better! That's why I'm here!

Reheated to 140° in casserole dish wrapped in foil with a little water. Point didn't have much of a smoke ring but it was definitely the star of the show even though I sliced the wrong way lol. Outer edge of the flat was dry but towards the middle it was nice and tender.
