Between July 4th, an all-staff party, and a men's cookout at church ... I've done 24 9-10lb butts in my 3D in the month of July. That's a record for me ... and one I'd rather not repeat without upgrading to a bigger model :-)
Props to my good old 3D though ... 5yrs since purchase and it still doesn't miss a beat!

What's the most you've done at one time?  I did six and then realized I needed a much larger drain pan.  :)  I think 8 would be possible, but not sure.

I've only done 4 max at a time since I use foil pans and need a little more space at the top than the current rack config allows. Do you have any issues with the lowest butts getting hammered from the fire box being that close?
