New Stumps Clone

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I wanted to share my new Stumps clone. It is a rotisserie version, 3 shelves 14" x 30", and side access to a 2 tier sheet pan rack. This is my set-it-and-forget-it dream

Heh... as picky as I am about electricity, even I'll let that slide! Awesome smoker! I have always been intrigued by the Stumps method of smoking.

Lump charcoal is in the chute. You light it at the bottom at the grate, the heat travels up to the oven throught the oven inlet. Coal cannot burn up the chute because the top lid is airtight. Gravity feeds new lump to the fire and the ash falls through the grate to the ash pan. Heat is controlled with the valve (air). one characteristic of this type smoker is a completely mind blowing cook time, hands off. there is a forum dedicated completely to this type of clone. i don't know if you guys post other forum info or not.

Wow, Thats all I can say. Talk about effortless cooking, pretty impressive.

What kind of lump are you using? Does it give you a good ring plus flavor?

Nice piece you have there:-)

The lump of choice here is mexican 100% mesquite, retail $13.00/ #30. Ring is acceptable for me. Butts and Tri-tip:

I have 2 questions:
1.) On the horizontal tube leading into the oven, what keeps lump from spilling into this tube? Is there a grate there too?

2.) Where do you add wood? Below the ash grate, or in with the lump?

Again, very nice work!

Not much is needed to keep the lump in the chute, out of the oven. The "where do you add wood" question is a 3 page debate elswhere, but suffice it to say, scattered in the lump chute or in the ash pan as desired, will work, just personal preference. Just keep in mind, that my oven is oversize in relation to the real deal. Lots of mods needed for my monster roto.PDT_Armataz_01_01.gif

Pretty cool,

Hey, could you fit a guru to that baby or is it already pretty easy to dial in temps?

Nice Q-view!

As the wind increases, the more difficult it is to make the temp. stay put. A stoker or guru would be very nice at those times. This baby eats between 4 and 6 pounds of lump per hour.

Considering the....

Considering the setup you have which.......by the way, I think is awesome. That charcoal tower would work really well with a guru---I am thinking that it truly would be a set it and forget---just go to bed and wake up to briskets!!
