    Yea can’t wait to get it. It was a small fortune but screw it I’ll have it for a lifetime. Yea I’ve spent a few nights cooking all night wasn’t worth it to me by the time everyone comes over I’m ready for bed lol. Was tempted to order it with the stainless steel racks but it’s an additional 800 bucks seems a bit pricey to me what you guys think?

  2. My recollection is the Pitmaker crew won the brisket category using the safe at the Houston Rodeo BBQ cookoff a few years back. No pressure, no excuses!!!!! If you're in the area I expect and invite to the party.

    Great suggestion!! If you use the Minnon smoking method you should have great results!!

    So when are you going to give us a report update on your new rig?

    I was looking at the Pitmaker products for my next smoker. I would love to hear your impressions of the unit.

    I am now just learning on my cheap Dyna-glo charcoal offset. I think that by the time that rusts out, I should have enough $$ saved for that Pitmaker unit.

    Love this rig. It’s an awesome smoker holds temperature for 15hrs easily with no guru or anything. I don’t think it’s needed. I’ve made wings,brisket, ribs and pork butt on there all came out great. This is some ribs I made the other day halfway through the cook. It doesn’t leak even I tiny bit. A lot of money butt worth every penny. You won’t be disappointed. I even cooked on it one night shut it all down and 24hrs later open up the vents to cook again and it had enough coal left to light back up again without adding more. Didn’t even have to relight it held the heat in that long that 24hrs later still wasn’t totally out. Great pit.
