I got a big sheet of cardboard out and traced the size of my grates of my new braunfels smoker, drew out the size of the lang grate on it also. it is over twice as big, plus I can cook in the side box, and as Richtee said in one of the posts that helped me decide Well..

untill you wanna do some ABT's and a couple fattys and it takes a face cord to do them (With a 84 or larger)

I am just cooking for the family. and when you look at it I could cook 100 lbs of butt or 20 1/2 chickens never even thought about cooking that much, but I couldicon_smile.gif

I cook at 275-ish - and I will say, it is miserly. If I do butts - 10 hrs-ish, I don't empty the woodbin in the front (not large at all).

If I do something small, like ribs, chicken, etc - 4-5 hrs, I only use about 1/2-2/3 of the bin.

I have a guy I get some hickory off of - he makes sledgehammer handles and I get his rejects. I will use 2-3 sticks (square, sledge handle size) every 30-40 minutes or so.

this is with an 84D

Big congrats on the new smoker, May you have many happy smokes and meals with it.

That may be a stretch, but I am sure you could do 75 lbs. 120 lbs is about max for my 60, or 14 butts.

Happy for you about your new arrival. I doubt you will regret getting it!

11 fit on my 60 easily. I still use it for one butt and a rack of ribs. Doesn't consume much wood at all. For a butt smoke, not even half the woodbox.
