<br />Great looking racks.  Stupid question but what exactly would you be using the smaller version for.  I assume that for someone like myself that is doing mostly pork butts, ribs and chickens I would want the larger model?

I do not have a use for the larger version, but the smaller version I will be using beyond assisting with smoking preparations. I can prepare several plater of appitizers, and/or cold cut platers ahead of time and place them in the refridgerator. Also use the same as carrying caddy, or serving stand. For me the possibilities for the smaller version are endless.

I just need to remember to order four bottom trays when I place my order[:)]

Butts & chickens, yes. That was the bonus use we realized after the fact. The larger rack was designed primarily for drying salmon, where a good airflow is needed.

The smaller rack basically has less space in between racks & is more suited for flat stuff. But it's also MUCH easier to slide into your fridge for overnight damp/dry marination.

Another thought; for someone like myself who is not going to do four to eight trays of food at a time. As I look at the compacted version, I'm thinking about placing it on a small sheet pan, so that I can place one or two butts on the bottom rail (instead of the drip pan), and have room to place two chickens on another rail (and still may have room for a tray of thighs[:)]).

Must we always be in the hen house.  

I am sure its all nice and meaty and fresh.   But the pork butts must be served. :)

In Serious thinking, I like the smaller one for Bacon and ribs and for cheese.  Oh yeah and nuts.  Its great for transportation and for prep and for completion loading.

i rarely do a large load of big stuff.  if I do, i may use one a couple racks.  Still allowing for the smaller version.

Kirk, I will call you up on Friday more than likely to order some stuff.
