Searching for a pit.

Well after searching around the net for a smoker that will allow me to sleep but can cook enough meat for comps, my eye is focused on a Stumps Smoker. Does anyone own or know anyone who uses them? Or do you have any smokers that you like that I should consider? After last week, "my first comp" I cant get it out of my mind. Im hooked but as my brother said, we dont want to go to a drag race driving a Pinto again. Not that my WSM and others dont cook well, I just want to use something that might be able to be used for catering too. I know that I could buy more Bullets, but I want a bigger smoker. The bullet is fine for home, it just isnt BIG enough. And I have this pit envy thing going on too.

Its nice to have a place to ask questions like this. So bring it on.
Thanks.
Dale

I think Stumps is a good idea...they are a tad expensive but I think it is well worth it! I have been thinking about getting the GF222-CM for a while now...4 racks and it will hold temp for a nice long time!

If you haven't yet, take a listen to the Stumps Podcast. Joby and Stumps are GREAT guys!! I'm sure they would be happy to take your order...also, look at their website...they have a forum as well!! :biggrin:

I've heard nothing but good things from Stumps owners about that cooker. I think Stumps is the way to go for added capacity plus that "almost" set it and forget it mode many are searching for.

I think there are definite mods that should be ordered if you go with a Stumps. Most of the almost mandatory ones can be gleened from the owners bulletin board on the Stumps site.

Great podcast, and I think Finney has done quite a bit of research on the Stumps. When his wife lets him, perhaps he will chime in.

Have you looked at Spicewine cookers? They're another cabinet style cooker I've heard good things about.

Yeah, I've looked at them for a while now and I'll say if I was buying right now that it would be a Stump's with gravity fuel feed (GF models). I'll tell you, I used to hate :vent: the look of the "BOX COOKERS". But then I started looking at them with an engineering eye and the box slowly became beautiful. 8-[ They hold temps better than your oven (your oven, not mine ) and are miserly on fuel usage.
I've offered to let Joby send me a unit for reviewing... but so far no reply to my offer. Come on Joby. :hug:

Just the opposite. Does not use much at all for each cook.
