OK, here's my $.02. Buy the biggest, best smoker you can afford. Think about Buyer's Remorse as an effect. Given the long lifetime of a Cookshack smoker, are you more likely to regret spending a little more money than you wanted to, or regret having a little less smoker than you wanted?

The 25, 45, and 066 all have the same size racks - 14" deep, 18" wide.  Ribs go in sideways.  You may have to angle them just a tad. But without cutting you can not place them lengthwise front to rear.  When I was shopping for a smoker years ago, I took a small tape measure to the store; looked foolish.  But that is what I did. Bought the 66 for the extra shelf capacity.

I agree with oldsarge - the 18 in. rack in my AQ (SM066) is a convenience well worth the money (to me, you may decide differently). I'm not sure how many cooking racks the SM-025 you are considering has, but I easily get 2 large meaty racks of loin backs on each rack, and no need to cut or even rotate them (although I do flip them halfway through - just my choice).
