Pecan and cherry wood. Smoked 2.5 hours, wrapped and hung (I liked this) for 1 hour, then about a half hour unwrapped and on rack. The drums only took about 45 minutes near end when I cracked the lid a bit.

How many racks of ribs can you fit?

I've seen 8 racks done on the PBC thread, but since my cooks are normally for only 4 people I've never fully loaded mine up with more than 3 or so.

So you could cook for around 20 to 25 people with just one PBC if you wanted to with Ribs. How many Pork Butts? I'm looking for an over flow cooker, but not sure I want to spend as much as what the Gateway or Hunsaker cost. I know there are more out there, but is there that much difference between any of them? Are most flat vs hanging? Also which one is better for chicken IYO.

I might get a Humphrey's Battle Box vs the Pint if I have this option because most of my cooks will be small. Just a few times a year I will be cooking for larger groups up to around 50 or so people.

Check out ssv3's posts on this page for a good idea on capacity http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=210239&page=10

Pretty good looks at lots of foods hanging.....im certain that hanging increases capacity in drums!

The PBC is known on the webs as a very good chicken cooker from what I have read. I have no idea abot those other two drums as I never used em. They look really nice, but as you say.....high price tag. Someone else would have to say if they cook "that" much better to be worth more than twice as much. I'm very happy with what I can get out of the PBC personally.
