Default Yoder YS640 for Competition

Is it possible to cook an entire KCBS competition on a single Yoder YS640 (2 butts, 2 briskets, 6 racks of ribs and 12 thighs)?

I did my first comp on a 640. I cooked this 1 brisket 2 butts 5 racks and 20 thighs. It was all about the timing to make sure all the food came off before the next one went on. Good luck.

Thank you for the input. I'm getting tired of the stick burner.

Can you buy the YS1500 without the competition cart because I plan to mount the smoker to an existing trailer. Buying two YS640's is a possibility also.

I was originally going to do two of the 640's also, but I think I have changed my mind. I would assume they could build without the comp cart. They can do the others without the comp cart.

I think cost wise 2 640's will be cheaper than the 1500. I know 2 640's was cheaper than the 1320 they sold for a while. It would allow you to cook at different temperatures also, which could be a benefit. I don't own one but would love to!

The YS1500 will be $3595 while two 640's with comp cart are $1800 each. So, there is not much difference. The 1500 will get you more space overall with the second shelf. I havent pulled the trigger on it yet, but I am leaning to the 1500.

Both are good options IMHO. The advantage of 2 640s is that you could get a wider range of temps at the same time. You also need to consider how you are going to haul them.

The main purpose for the 1500 is so that you can easily do a comp with it. You can do it on one 640 as well but you can't do as much meat. I do know that it sure is nice when we do the classes that we can use extra cookers to achieve different results and different styles of cooking. We generally use 2 640s and 2 480s unless we have a big ole stick burner going like the Kingman or the Frontiersman. I love cooking on both of them, and the Kingman is essentially a 1500 stick burner. It holds temps like a champ. Thats another real advantage of a big ole hunk of steel.

Guy,

It will be tough to do on one 640. I wish I would have known you could have checked out the 1320 and 640 I have on my trailer. I think I saw a picture of a 1320 without the cart at one point. If you talk to Joe or Don, I'm sure they'll make it anyway you want

I'm selling my YS640 and I'm ordering a YS1500. As stated above, talk to Yoder and they will make anything you want. The only limit is your imagination. If you want a trailer mount YS1500 or trailer mount two YS640's they can do it.

This is a YS1320 on wood pit legs.

Sean,

Are you cooking at Sams club here in Medford? I am just tired of the stick burner. Having Yoder make the trailer is an interesting thought also.
