    So I am running my first smoke with my brand new Party Gator from Gator Pits.

    Here are a few pics as it is progressing. I woke up late and did not put them on until 830am.

     More to come.

    I am always looking at those Gator Pits here in Houston.  Good pits if you ask me and a good price too.

    Thanks...just trying it out today for the first time. Keeps temp real well so far. 8 hours in Butts are at 150 degrees so far. I will post some more pics when they are ready to pull out. The Gator is my first offset smoker....well hell my first smoker outside of a bullet cheapo smoker.
