Default Shrinkage

Majority of Brethren appear to be expanding their LxWxH on their chosen cookers. Needs 12” wheels and a tongue dolly. Size matters. Buy as big as you need and go up. Bigger is better. Fits 22 briskets and a whole Hog but usually cook for two. I do admire and somewhat envy the Brethren with large smokers and their pride in selection of craftsmanship.

I have Shrinkage syndrome. This looks so cool.

Interesting! Also makes a lot of sense for people in Europe living in apartments without much storage space.

I guess Im just wishing over coffee that Shirley or one of the other top shelf makers had a cool Tabletop. Not an Hibachi but a locking lid slide out grate, heavy duty yet portable table top. I have an All Season Feeders Tabletop that I use way more than I ever thought I would. Nice for small cooks.

Looks like overpriced and over-engineered, but it's German so the 2nd part is to be expected. It has more cooking space than my Weber GA but I can buy a few Webers for the price of that one.

As much as I love the big cookers, I def don't need one. But I like different cookers and thus have no problem feeding 25+ people a couple of times a year. All it takes are a few cookers and a good plan.

I like to call things like this "right sized". maybe not right for you- but is right for me- or is right for someone. Everyone has different wants and/ or needs.

I have a mini wsm, a 30 gallon UDS, a 55 gallon UDS and a Vertical wood fired. I enjoy them all- and they are good at different things. IF I had to choose one- it's be the 30 gallon uds- to me, it's "right sized" for my want and needs..
I started out with nothing and I got most of it left.

I'm very happy with my 24 X 36, plenty big enough to cook for 2 or 50 however any smaller and the airflow would be too much IMO.
