Default OHP CTO or Holstein M 444/555 Convection Smoker

Looking to open a little smokehouse and have two models in mind.

1. Ole Hickory Pits CTO

or

2. Holstein Model 444/555 Convection Smoker
http://www.holsteinmfg.com/products/...vection-smoker

The reviews for the CTO are over all really good. I could buy two with the benefit of having two cookers running different temps. Also this would appease the HD for when I need to cook two different meats. My main issue is capacity when compared to the 444/555.


I haven't found many reviews for the 444/555 but it's capacity (5 racks at 57" x 57" each for large model) and price range are intriguing. It has convection fans and five huge racks.

Both models are NSF and have gas assist.

The units will be outdoors under shelter with screen windows to meet regulations (without getting into greater detail).

Should I buy two CTOs or go for the 444/555?

I'm leaning towards the 444/555 because the capacity to cost ratio is amazing.

What say you people? Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

I realized this was posted over the Easter holidays.

Anyone got information on the Holstein smokers? Would love to hear a review.
