LARRY RUINED IT

I was keeping this a secret until I got the pit home and detailed pics could have been taken. Well Larry's mouth matches his head, big. Just kidding Larry.
Larry is actually the one who leaned me towards the Spicewine. I was dead set on a Klose or Gator. Around New Years Larry and I discussed the pros and cons of each and the pros for a spicewine outweighed the cons. I'd love to own a Klose or a Gator but for now, this is all I need.



The cooking area comes standard with 4 racks. I requested to have another rack for the extra space. As you can see if I plan to do butts or briskets or something I will have to remove 1 of the racks to make head space otherwise if you want a whole mess of ribs, well I got 5 racks for ya!



The cooking racks are removeable for easy cleaning. The grate even comes out for easy cleaning as well.



The water pan is located directly below the last rack. Fill her up with 8 gallons of water and then fahgeddaboutit!!
The firebox has it's own lower door with 2 dampers. Ash pan for easy removal of the ashes. Jay mentioned something along the lines of if you run out of coals and are runnin it cold, the upper box will still hold it's heat for a short period of time. No extreme drops in temps!




Bottom dampers


Here is the storage box.....you can put a lot of crap in there!
There are also 2 storage boxes along the sides. They are still ziptied from the trip home and I have not cut them off yet, so no pics on that. Water pan drain valve located in the storage area.

Some of Jay's special touches plus the top smoke stacks which are adjustable.




I can't say enough how pleased I am with this smoker. I'll be firing her up tonight for her maiden cook. I've got 5 slabs of ribs, 2 pork shoulders and a couple of fatty's........think I'll have room??

If anyone is interested in more detailed pics just ask. I know in the past I've wanted to see different parts of the smoker but the pics weren't there. Also, the pictures do not do this smoker justice. It is truly a work of art!

Finally Jay mentioned that this size smoker has cooked 24 pork shoulders and 4 briskets at once (if I'm not mistaking)

Also I forgot to mention. This thing will fire up with 2 chimneys of charcoal. That will last 4 hours without having to refuel. The minion method is not suggested for this type of smoker.

Heres the side storage box.......it does run all the way through the back. What would you put in there without having to reach all the way back to get it?? This storage is on both sides;

Unless you are putting out major volume, you don't need an offset. Nice looking cooker there Steer!
