Watcha Pit Look Like?

So lets get some pics of everyone's pits.

Here is my Brinkmann Trailmaster Limited.


And my UDS.

Photobucket is acting up, or I'd post a couple of pictures.

My main smoker is in my Avatar. Sometime soon, I'll try to get a picture of my new Monster pit.

Kindly give us some pros and cons on Stumps vs BWS. Thanks. Now the gravity fed charcoal tube seems like a good idea. In fact at one time was considering infringing on some patents and putting one on the direct cooking section of Fred. Not sure when that good idea was forgotten.

Having never OWNED a Backwoods, I'm not sure I can give a true comparisom.

I have cooked on Backwoods, though, and compared to the Stump's, the Backwoods felt "flimsey". No, not flimsey like those cheapies in Wally World, just not like it would last as long.

Also, I don't like the water pan. It's a pain to keep water in it if that's the way you plan to use it. It's also a pain to keep clean whether you use foil or not. Also, I didn't like the sliding air control inlets. They jiggled around, and if we were set up near the train tracks (there must be a LAW...competitions MUST be near trains!), the vibrations can change your settings.

The Stump's are a true "offset" smoker. Your heat and smoke comes in from the side and the bottom. There's a deflector plate to distribute the heat fairly evenly. It takes just a couple of hours to figure out how to use the ball valve and control your temperature.

Ok thanks. Noticed the BWS's have some cheesy lookng grates and the funky fixed water pan with a pipe up the middle seems totally goofy. Not sure what the injuneer who invented that scenario may have been huffing on for inspiration.

Very nice. Those wheel bearings need packing once a year whether they need it or not. Also no bearing buddies. Those are designed to burn up wheel bearings. Roof would be a nice touch so the cookie no get wet..lol.
