Finally, my new rig!!!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
****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 PDT_Armataz_01_34.gifPDT_Armataz_01_34.gif from truckers when this baby is goin down the Highway!!!! (Need me an air horn) icon_mrgreen.gif

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!!!!!!!!!!!! PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif 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 PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
