I have done 6 on my drum with ease but when i tried 7 it added 2 hours to the cooking time. The temp stayed pretty constant i think the problem was airflow.went back to 6 the next time and no problems

I make and sell barrel type smokers and do believe you'd be better off using a 85gallon sized cooker to start with. My units are high airflow or convection type smokers, so cook times are not slowed down by big loads to the degree of a standard design. Eight on a 55gallon , with standard airflow(pipe nipples) would cause a concern of time delay and uneven cooking. Just bump up to the next size and you'll be able to cook as you want. When using my racks, thirty racks of spares can be done at once on a 85gallon model. It comes with three grates to use.So cooking eight butts at once is no problem. Good luck. Steve.

Thanks a lot for your advices, this helps explain the image that I saw with 6 large butts on a single rack was not from a 55 gallon but probably one with a large capacity.

Four of thos asses on one wrack atta time for me arranged something like the post above by biggs98.. Pull them off one at a time If needs be. They get rapped and tossed in the cooler when internals reach 195. Some may smoke longer than others, but 195 is the magic word as to who comes off and when. Let them rest wrapped in foil in the cooler for an hours or so. You won't be sorry you did.

I'm in the non diffuser camp but if you smoke 4 butts on one rack wouldnt that be a lot of juices hitting the fire? I love the pit taste but wonder if doing that many would alter the finished product?
