WOW.. Let me just say.. WOW again...

I'd actually consider making the outside of the firebox stainless. the inside won't rust or anything. I'd also consider putting a 1" lip or something w ...

Thats one of the areas I would have done differently. I would have welded the interior sheets first, then built the frame around it and then weld the sheets on the outside. When I built mine, I start ...

I used 2" square steel tubing 1/8" thick.

Note on the table.... We've had all kinds of rain the past few weeks and it has bowed pretty bad as it swelled across the grain. I'd leave a ta ...

So I did my first cook on it this weekend and like everything else in my life, I decided to just go for it and see what happens.

So I cooked - 14 racks of ribs, 7 full Briskets and 8 Pork Butts. T ...

Cool thanks for the numbers. I agree that the lump does tend to catch quicker which is one of the things I've learned as well with the new smoker.

Question on your numbers though. I have no idea ...

That cooker looks GREAT! I really like the design and especially the fit/finish. You'll get the hang of the cooking temperature this. Took me 3 test burns on mine to figure most of it out.

Well here is the final verdict on the last burn... I lit it at approx 6:30am EST and got it to the mid 150's by 7am EST (this is where I normally throw my meat on as I don't wait for it to hit 225) a ...

The type in the picture is a ball valve. I can attest that on Low Pressure burners this works great.

Regulator to Black Pipe to Ball Valve to Burner

High-Pressure, I don't know, there are other ...

Pecan. It's a tad milder than Hickory with the same basic flavor I think.

Ohh Maybe I missed something. I do have a regulator coming off the propane tank. It's one Low Pressure Regulator feeding 1/2 black pipe which is then split to the burners.

I would NOT run any pr ...

Interestingly enough, I notice no difference with one or both burners running. These are both Low Pressure burners and they are just Gas Rated Ball Valves from Home Depot. I'd be a little hesitant t ...

Just for the Burners... Just to communicate how well this thing holds heat I'm think starting to be amazed. Hopefully it burns nice and long if it's requiring so little O2 to burn....
