Chris, what's the temp range from top shelf to botom shelf? Also, do you put a water pain in there as well?

Greg I am not sure what the temp difference is when it is loaded up with meat but when I first got it I did a test burn with no meat and I put probes all over it and there was maybe a 10 degree difference at first. After and hour or so there was a 0-5 degree difference. There is a water pan in there as well. If you look at the pic I included of the firebox there is that box in the center of where i would put the charcoal which I fill with water. It is a little hard to see of the pic I put in of the plate that separates the firebox from the main chamber but there is a hole in the center of it where grease is supposed to drip into that water pan.

Great looking bones Chris!
Bummer about the Gator. I think we saw the Gator here when you first bought it.
Good luck with the Stumps.

Thanks for the well wishes for the new smoker everybody.

Puff I remember when I got the gator I posted pics and stuff here. For an offset it was a nice set up but feeding it logs every 1/2 hour was just becoming too much for every cook. I would like another offset some day but it would have to be in addition to enough insulated cookers to accommodate my needs.

Tannehill Kid good luck on your search if you find on in your area make sure you act on it quick because this style of cooker seems to go fast.

Chris
