Nice! I like how the firebox is down under the pit like that. Do you find that the wheel is in the way or is it easy ehough to get around it? Tall exhuast stack!

A real smokin' machine! How big is the firebox? Looks a little small for a nice big pit.

Great Pit Gatorgrillin, Very nice. How does a reverse flow rig work anyway? I have heard of them but I don't know the details. Well best wishes with the new pit. I know how jazzed you must be.

Zilla, this came up a few days ago ~ This thread will probably help.

Good to hear it. You can always go back a chop off some of that smoke stack in the cooking chamber. That way you won't over smoke your meat, and the smoke won't back up and starting looking for another way out (door leaks) or choke your fire.

I have used 4 logs and temp is holding 250 all afternoon! I put one small rack of ribs on just because it needs some meat to cook. They guy I bought it from had used it 4 times and it is about 6 months old. He made the mods Iasked for and i picked it up this morning.
