Good Saturday Afternoon, Smokin Brothers!

Some may recall that I sold my old Southern Q gravity feed smoker last month, to make room for a new pit I had on order. Well it arrived a couple days ago. It's a shiny new Southern Q Limo Junior Gravity Feed Smoker - same as the old one, but bigger, with more cooking racks, and with a few more extra bells and whistles.

First off, each of the 4 cooking racks on the new pit are about twice as big as my old one - and the old one only had 3 racks...so this pit has more than double the capacity. Other upgrades include: 8" heavy duty locking swivel casters; brushed stainless steel handle; an added pull toggle latch to take some of the load off the commercial slam latch; a Tel-Tru thermometer in the door; and 4 D-ring tie downs.

Southern Q also carries BBQ Guru Temperature Control Systems, and I got a good price to do it, so I upgraded to the new DigiQ DX3 controller. Very similar to the DX2, but they've redesigned the fan, and I assume there are some upgrades to the software in the controller.

I fired it up day before yesterday and ran it about 3 hours to season it, but haven't cooked anything in it yet. I hope to rectify that tomorrow if the weather will cooperate. I have 2 racks of spares in the fridge that will be the maiden cook. And I may throw in a chuck roast too...

More to come!

Thanks for the kind words my friend...I do love these gravity smokers.

Hey Justin...thanks Brother!

Sadly, today’s cook got put on hold. Had to take Mrs. Red to Ugent Care last night...she’s got the flu. So I’m holding off on smoking the ribs until she feels good enough to eat em. So I’m her nurse today instead.

Thanks for the good thoughts Justin!

Yeah, she’s an elementary school teacher, so she gets plenty of chances to pick up what’s going around. This flu bug has been bad here this season...so bad that school was cancelled one day last week because over 1/3 of the district’s kids and teachers were out with the flu.
