Default Ideas from the pros (that means all of you guys)

Picking this bad boy up tomorrow. So need your opinion. Should I go vertical or horizontal. What's the pros and cons of each? I have thought with vertical maybe sticking a roto in it. Anyone did that. Would the fire box be bought the same? Different trailer setups. Pretty much if I could get you guys in the garage what would you do. Then after a few beers what should have we done...

It would be cool to see one of those vertical. You might need a ladder to get the food on the top shelf though.

lots of variations can be done. the real question is "What do you want to cook with it?". IE-are we talking comps? whole pigs? parties? catering? roadside BBQ shack?...need more info.

Here is a pic of my first one just to give you a idea. I bought this from a guy that made them in carolina. Trailer is from Harbor Freight... like $250. Hope the pic comes out right.

I knew a guy that had a vertical with a door on the end. He had a grate that slid in and out and he usually cooked hogs. He had an insulated top on it too, just squared off with a bunch of insulation.
I've seen verticals with cabinet type doors in the side that were nice too. You could still insulate the top and you wouldn't have to open the giant lid. Paul Kirk had one of these years ago and Dave Klose later made him a custom version pictured here.

Ok here's some more info. We are just starting out. Did out first comp about a month ago. Just had my little Kingsford and a Weber kettle. So obviously seeing some other guys setup we were hooked. We were looking at a harbor freight trailer also to put it on. We have a friend that does welding and fab work so that is a plus for us. Maybe some vending at the local farmers market or county fairs and festivals. Just enough to pay for our "hobby" So no whole hogs, mostly butts, briskets, ribs, whole chickens probably. And what ever else random meat is on sale at the time LOL.

sliding_billyDo you have dims on that thing?

At the risk of confirming the Village Idiot thing....Ummm what our those

The one thing about verticals I don't like is they make a mess if you slide out racks to tend to meat, but I am keeping mine and adding a lang to go with it.I just take carboard & put on the ground to minimze the mess.
