What is the max capacity for this cabinet smoker? How many pork butts can it hold? How about the planned mini?

I am trying to decide which plan to go with based on capacity needs.

Thanks for input in advance

I'm thinking about 24 square, 3-4' tall. Likely hold 6-8 ribs, 30lbs or 3-15 lb briskets...but this is only a guess. Waiting for an official release

The internal cook chamber dimensions of the new set are 19 inches wide 23 inches deep and 25 inches tall. This is what we're working with so far if anyone has any other ideas let me know it's not too late if someone decides it needs to have more room for one reason or another but we need to kind of stick to something pretty quick

To put that into context, it is almost identical in size of the Stump's Baby XL, just a tad bit bigger, it is 1 inch deeper and a 1/2 inch wider with the height being the same. They list there smoker (baby XL) holds 16 slabs on baby back ribs, 12 slabs of St. Louis style ribs, 8 large briskets, 12 boston butts or 24 to 28 chicken halves. I like it, big enough if you have a good amount of people over but yet still small enough to cook for the family and have left overs for lunch the next week at work. Just my 2 cents, I like it!!

Is it realistic for the purpose of keeping it size manageable....that the coal chute act as a single stack, insulated, but looks like a trapezoidal stack like a chimney stack. In reality, it's the side mounted coal chute., then we use a cube dimensioned for the cook chamber and firebox crossover ...a couple of 3" hard wheals and a small sticker that reads. CAUTION: lift with two people, this unit exceeds 110 lbs. =))

The full size cabinet I built from the original plan, I cannot roll it out of the garage to use it. Once it hits the dirt, I can't spin it around to steer it back in. It has to be over 700 lbs or more and on high quality 8" foam filled wheels

My drawing skill attached ...the bolt on coal chute can be sealed by installing it against flat Nomex gasket

Puff, the overall weight of the Stumps baby XL is 375 lbs, it is the 2nd smallest gravity fed smoker they make with the smallest being also 375 lbs it list as it's weight. The size difference is not much. I think it will be a perfect size for a patio to use as a home cooker.

Puff I bet you could even lighten it up more than 375lbs as I bet that is sheet metal exterior. Get a spool gun if you don't have one for that 211 of yours and put aluminum plate on the exterior, bet you can save a good amount of weight there also, just trying to help ya out. Don't want you to throw your back out, lol.

Ha... If you saw me trying to roll out the big gravity feed? It's like those road runner cartoons....my shoes are slipping on the floor and that sucker is moving an inch forward and then back where it was. If it's half the size of the one I have...that would be the biggest I could go, or build a motorized trolley to move it around!

Now that is a thought

You know it wouldn't be too hard to motorized one wheel. Little chain drive gear reduction motor you can do it.

OMG puff. You gotta stop with the visuals. I just woke the wife up laughing. I added a visual of you falling down and the cooker half way running over you and the neighbor standing there like foghorn leghorn saying now look what you did. LOL

Oh, so you DID see that.....?

Yep, I'd love to weight it but there's no way I can. As for a motorized chassis, SPECTACULAR....I'd love to see how that would work RC.

Got any plans? Or even a push in the right direction ? Not knowing a CHEAP source of gear reduction motors is the only reason my 275 does not have the rotisserie that was designed into it.

Treadmill motor is probably a good idea, I've seen the one we have years ago...that's also the last time we used it. Small block? Not bad either and frankly, not overkill. This sucker is heavy I'd bet over 700 lbs

I'd thought I bought good wheel$ but they are foam filled, no option to increase firmness to get less rolling resistance and within a week, flat spotting adds to the difficulty to move it. I may take them off and trailer mount this one. It's easier to roll a trailer but harder to store indoors with the bigger footprint.
