    ****Photobucket Warning, let the pics load *****
















    I did a full several hour 'SEASON' last weekend, and did 6 racks of Ribs this weekend, gave 3 of them away to neighbors, already got 2 GRAD PARTY Gigs lined up they were so good!!!

    I got to learn it some more, I calibrated the THERMS dead on but they were reading (in their current position) about 50* higher than where the meat was sitting... according to my probes.

    I'm gona add a couple more therms and maybe do some other MODs.

    The 'water pans' that go in from the sides can hold water/water foil pans or actually just charcoal and wood if I want to cook like a BBQ PIT... OR, I can just take them out all together and try and see if I even need them to baffle the heat or not... (I didn't get a good pic of them but they sit right over the intakes in the 5th pic down)

    Like I said, I got a lot of learning but if I use my head this can be quite a versatile rig for all kinds of Smoking & Qin
    .

    A little tweaking to the fire box and I got me a 4' long Charcoal basket... lite both ends with logs already thrown in there and I should be able to do some good long burns!!!

    I get lots of [​IMG][​IMG] from truckers when this baby is goin down the Highway!!!! (Need me an air horn) [​IMG]

    Thanks for letting me share!!!!

    NO, it is made by http://www.diamondplatepits.com/index.html
    The 60 Series

    I Picked out the customized items I wanted on it, got 3 of them for FREE, added an extra running light, and they were late so they gave me the under wood basket for free too!!!
    It was a hell of a deal IMO when it all worked out...






    I like that!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG] Might have to use that at the bottom of my biz flyers, too funny!!!

    Now that I look at it again if you painted it just so, looking at it from the trailer tongue it would look like a longhorn.

    Sweet setup and freebies too!!

    If you take a look at my avatar, you'll see the two thermometers on my Lang. The one on the upper right is where my upper rack sits and it runs about 40° hotter than the lower thermometer. My Grandson asked me about the temp diff. and I had to remind him that heat rises.

    I would suggest putting a thermo lower on the door and that way you would know the temps at the lower grate level.

    Thnx for the info on this one Dutch. I think that would be a good idea.

    I figured it was heat rising and how heat was traveling inside the smoker..

    I think I'm also going to invest in another Maverick Dual Probe so I can place them in all kinds of diff places to try to map out the hot spots and heat flow...

    Like I said, I got some learning to do but I do appreciate all the input [​IMG]
