Depends on how you define downside. Excess capacity is nice, but it usually comes with a price of weight. The Fatboy weights 100lbs extra, even on castors that is noticeable. I have had a Fatboy and Party, other then 1 contest a year lately, both far exceed my usual home cooking needs. As for more capacity, Party has 6 16 x 20 grates vs Fatboy having 4 20 x 20 grates. Having had several versions of BWS cookers, the advertised capacity for their cookers is optimistic. If you like bling(Stainless door), and don't need to move the cooker often a Fatboy would be fine. If you want a more portable, less expensive cooker that will hold hotel pans, get the extended Party. I have a had a Fatboy and original size Part in the past, and will returning to the BWS family with a Party in the next few weeks. Your mileage may vary.
