Pretty cool! Wonder how it works with 2 fireboxes. Says its to avoid hot spots and that you can control the heat flow from box to cooking chamber with a slide control of some type. Hey Finney, can you design 1 of these?

I think it might be good to do things at 2 different temps. If the ribs were in the box, you could cook birds on the grates in the barrel at a higher temp.
I dunno

First of all, I'm now all about the insulated "box" cookers (like Stumps & others) so I would build it like that. I would also 'steal' the Stumps gravity feed system (one on each end). Then set the whole thing up to be able to cook whole hogs or butts, briskets, shoulders and ribs. So it would have to have some removable shelves. Might even have charcaol baskets also for modified direct cooking the hogs and shoulders. Love that NC BBQ.
