    1050 gravity photo/measurement request

    My buddy has narrowed down his selection of a smoker to between the Masterbuilt 1050 gravity and the PitBoss 1150 pellet.

    His main concern at this point and probably the deciding factor between the two is capacity. The PitBoss has a larger main grate, but the Masterbuilt has a second full cooking rack.

    Can anyone take a measurement of the distance between the top of the main rack and the bottom of the second rack? Does anyone happen to have any photos of spatchcock'd turkeys on the main rack with the second rack in place?

    Any photos of big cooks/ stuffed 1050s? What's the most you've cooked at one time?

    Thanks and happy smoking!

    I don’t have a 1050 to measure but I would point out that the MB1050’s square shape gives it a lot more usable capacity to fit meats in versus the typical curved roof.

      You can get three half sheet pans in the 1050.

      The masterbuilt wins if you regularly need temps over 400 and/or want to direct grill. And if you are ok messing with charcoal and wood instead of pellets.

        There is not actually a second level full cooking grate, just a narrow one. But the distance from the bottom grate to the second is 5.5". There is a nice looking aftermarket option for full sized 2nd and even 3rd level grates that I'm considering.

        I haven't even tried to max out the capacity until I come up with a better way to manage the drippings

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

      Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
