The Competitor, the perfect cooker model for smoking the competition!

The Backwoods Competitor

Backwoods Competitor

Built for cooking contests, the Backwoods Competitor melds the need for larger capacities while needing portability for those looking to do catering or compete in the KCBS circuit, or a MIM contest.

The Backwoods Competitor has 8 racks measuring 19 1/2" square, spaced 3 inches apart. The Competitor can handle 16 Boston Butt's, or 8 full briskets. It can hold 21 slabs of St Louis Style ribs with all the racks inside of it.

The standard Backwoods Competitor comes with stainless doors and latches, the new low profile smoke stack, non removable water pan and splatter guard.

The Competitor weighs 350 LBS.

Pictured to the left is an upgraded Competitor with convection and auto water, both of which are available options to add on to a standard Competitor.


The base price of the standard Competitor is $3390
