Stacker SCHMACKER, who needs one?

I felt challenged today and really didn't feel like firing up 2 WSMs.....so I configured 4 - 7lb briskets on the top grate and my extension. After a couple hours of shrinkage they will fit fine. I could have put 2 more on the bottom grate and if I had another extender ring, 2 more. So you could realistically fit 8 brisket flats on 1 WSM. Have you hugged your WSM today??

I jamed 8 butts in my uds earlier this year. There was very little room for the smoke to work. The butts on the top grate wer very dark compared to the butts on the bottom. They never did aquire the smoked butt color.

Are you in this cook right now ?

Yep, briskets are at 146 and the WSM is chugging along at 235

there used to be a guy called Finney who produced a few and
sold them, but everyone hated him, so he stopped making them
and posting here.
If you ever see him, he might have one in his closet.

Briskets hit 165 and had a good color so they're now foiled. Took about 4.5 hours to get to 165, about average as they would if there was only one on the top grate. I thought with that much meat the cook time would be extended a bit.

I did too, and I wonder if it used slightly more fuel?

Didn't appear too when I was pulling them off.

I guess when it gets up to temp, it's all up to temp.

wonder about the smoke though, as stated above

Hey guys the briskets are done, sliced and in the fridge. They will be vacuum sealed and frozen in 2lb bags tomorrow. They are for customers. Next go around I'll add 2 more to the bottom grate!

No but I could add another ring to my lower grate, giving me 4 levels total.

So to get to each bottom grate you'd have to take off the top grate on each level. Seems like alot of heat loss to me. With a stacker you could take off the entire section quickly without fumbling around with grates.

No Puffy there are handles that attach the grates, therefore I could get all four grates off in about 30 seconds WITHOUT disassembling the cooker by removing an overpriced section! THAT'S alot of heat loss!

Look don't get pissed at me cause my extender was free and yours cost over $100 and took 6 months to be delivered! AND MAKES THE WSM TOP HEAVY! You should have saved your money and kept cooking on your trash can!
