Default traeger jr

Just thinking??? How much meat can you fit on a traeger jr? Is there enough room to do a competion? I have a wsm I can use for brisket and or butt, but what is the point if you are trying to go pellets. Most beautiful wife asked me a question a while ago that has me thinking!

Your most beautiful wife should buy you three more WSMs.

In a word NO, you need to move a few sizes before you can have the room you need for competition.

Or look at a FEC-100... Save the hassle of dealing with 4 WSM's... You won't be disappointed...

A single packer would probably be too much for the Jr.

They were made for small tailgating and vacation homes. Think of them as a cooker to feed 2-4 people. anything larger and you need to start moving up sizes

Yeah, I started thinking a side of spares is about 20 inches long and 8 or 9 wide. That pretty much takes up the whole thing. Pop's smoking hot has a bbq 00 and loves it. I am not in his income level though. Guess I will stick with what I have until I get a good bonus.

Build a UDS, then with the WSM you might be set.
