Default Chubby or G2?

I have narrowed down my next purchase to a backwoods, partly because they ship to Ontario, but also have read great things about the brand. The most I cook at a time is a couple of butts or briskets, 6 racks of ribs. Is the G2 worth the extra money?

If you ever want to cook anything in a full size pan the G2 is the way to go. If not, then i guess not. Humphreys doesn't ship to your area?

Closest dealer for them is in Maine. I asked them on their website. I am leaning towards the g2. Anybody cook in below freezing temps?

Which model Backwoods are you considering for this? I have G1 Competitor and G1 Chubby. Love them both. But a Party might be the footprint you're looking for. Something to consider - the G2s are much heaver than the G1s if portability is an issue.

I had a g2 chubby and g2 party for 4+ years and used them a ton for competitions and home use. I loved the extra depth for full pans and the extra room to get larger briskets, ribs and other meats in there.

Cooked on them all year round and no problem in below freezing temps. As mentioned by Shares the Party might be something worth looking into as well. If you are cooking big meats the Chubby only has 2 usable racks at one time because of the height. Party has a bunch more room.

Considered buying a Backwoods a couple of years ago and favored the G2 Chubby, I don't think you can fit a rack of spares front to back in the Chubby, so if you can afford the G2 go with G2.

Thanks for the comments. I definitely think the G2 is where I am going, just need to shovel the deck again! Too early for this snow!

Have cooked on our Fatboy in below 0 and no issues. Little extra fuel but that's it.
