    Question for the board here.

    I'd like to have a cooker that would let me cook for 250 people or so. Obviously, that's a pretty big cooker.

    But there are plenty of times, when the group I'll cook for would be more like 25 or 35 people.

    For you folks with big cookers, am I right in thinking it's pretty inefficient to cook a small amount of meat on a huge cooker?

    This has me thinking that maybe something like a Lang Twin 84 might be the ticket. http://pigroast.com/model84t.htm

    If I'm understanding that model right, it's basically two 84 units on one trailer. It doesn't appear that they're connected. Which is what I'd want I think. If I just wanted to use 1 unit, I could. But if it's a big crowd, I could fire up both.

    I guess the only real downside is having to tend two separate fires but that's not a huge deal.

    Am I thinking right there? Anyone have a similar situation needing the ability to cook for both 35 and 250?

    Anyone have experience with the Lang Twins?

    Much thanks.
