Default Gateway drum cooker questions

I'm sure somebody has the answers to my questions, my sister in law wants to buy her husband a drum cooker, I offered up one of ugly drums but she wants the "new" shinny pretty drum. I suggested Gateway drum cookers. Then I was asked, how many grates do they have, or can use? If multiple, what's the spacing between the grates? On my ugly drum I often use 2 grates with great results when cooking larger quantities. So is this a good idea? Any body have pics that I could share or is the gateway a bad suggestion for a shinny pretty drum cooker.

Thanks

I've tried to tell her all that your saying, I plan on showing her the comments on here, so keep um coming. She's just impressed with looks, and likes the looks of the gateway.

Space for three racks. The bottom one is too close to the fire to do anything but sear. I cook on the top 2 at competitions. The Gateway is the Cadillac of drum cookers. I'm sure the haters are going to jump in here and offer their opinion without ever touching one. Take that for what it's worth. The results are verifiable and speak for themselves.

A PBC is a great cooker as well, and I have represented and competed on both a Pit Barrel and a Gateway. The Gateway is the more complete cooker, but that obviously comes at a price. If you have any other questions, fire away.
