Only 1 dealer around me here and don't like to go there.

How much can you really cook on the mini? How many Ribeyes can you cook at once? Breasts? Chops?

Can you do 2 racks of ribs cut in half?

    I'm going to follow this post, I have a XL and Love it but need to get a small or mini just to cook for me and my wife, I would love it to be mobile so I am leaning on the mini but wondered can you do a 4/5 pound spatchcock on it? Can you do two cowboy rib eyes, how much salmon can you put on a mini. is there a two tear rack/rig. Any body out there have a history with this I would love your input.

    I love this place!
