I've noticed most of the competing brethren here own several different types of pits. Do you believe some pits produce a better product than others even if cooked at the same temp. for the same amount of time? If you had only one pit to compete with, and did not have to worry about turn in times, which one would you go with?

If I didn't have to worry about turn in times, I would cook with the big Lyfe Tyme offset. It just seems the best q I cook comes off of it.

I am not a competitor but you ask a complicated question. Mobility of the pit, quantity of meat being cooked. What is good for a competitor is probably not the best for a backyard BBQ'er. If you can be more specific about what "you" want to accomplish, you may get more responses. Nobody trying to dis you here!

We own offsets, cabinets, drums and bullets. Love them all. Everyone has their faves though.

Mike I would answer this with a yes. Our team has an FE, 4UDS's, 2 Webber bullets. We do not cook on all them at comps but we do cook on a combination. I will say that we have had better luck with brisket when we cook it on a can rather then the FE or the bullet. Pork different story we have better luck on a bullet low and slow then a UDS. If there are no turn in times, it dioes not matter because I think some cookers cook better then others, but thats my opinion. Hope this answers your question.

The thought of only having one pit to play with makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up! Oh the humanity!

Its a multi-faceted question.

A Pitmaster should know his equipment... and that is compounded by several different
techniques, scenarios, temperatures, and cookers. Its a skill set we strive for.

Cut my teeth on a Bandera clone.
Love the offset that weighs 5 times more than myself.
Appreciate the features of my keg (low/high temp/direct/indirect).

If there was a stick burning BGE out of 1/4" steel.... now that's another story.

If I had to pick just one for a Comp, it would be a Backwoods. The reason for that other than the obvious is that it is not effected by the weather. It cooks the same in -10 weather as it does in 90 degree weather.

Since the first time that we cooked with our Spicewine, I have not even thought about using the bullet.
