Like Mummel's post, I could only see 6 vs.4 racks. Whatever is the best deal. I'm only using the number of racks it takes to hold the food I'm smoking. The 6 rack model gives more levels to choose from when using fewer racks. Also, the top racks on both look as if there is the same amount of room so they put 2 more racks in between the top and bottom racks maybe for jerky and smaller cuts, giving it 1,462.5 sq. inches of cooking area instead of 975 on the 4 rack model. With your handle are you using it at the Firehouse or home?
