Actually I mostly cook in KCBS competitions. I do some private catering already. I am kicking around the idea of full-time catering and would like to have a restaurant but that takes a lot of money too.

With the cooking capacity of the cooker you certainly have the potential to do either. I was just thinking with a temperature probe, cooking times wouldn't be much of an issue due to the fact the cooker will shut down and go into warm mode when the desired temperature of the meat is reached. To your original question, as to approximate cooking times, I would keep a detailed log book of your cook times to build a history of your cooker with various meats. I hope I'm making sense!

When I was working I wish I had your cooker, From Halloween till New Years day one year I cooked and served 530 turkeys, I was the banquet chef in a large hotel
I have never liked turkey since, Stick to catering, owning a restaurant is for the criminally insane. I know I owned one.
