Early labor day cook with my new smoker

As some of you may have seen I sold my gator. It was just becoming too much for my needs. So over the past few months I have kept my eyes out for a used insulated smoker. And about a month or so ago a used stumps was up for sale in my area so I quickly snatched it up.I may also try and see if I can find a used fatboy in my area so Ill two main cookers which will allow me to try different thing with temps and stuff.



What drove me to the insulated was the ease of use and minimal use of charcoal. With the gator the at comps I would feel like $hit from feeding the fire all night. So this should allow me to catch a few zs.

I have a few racks of ribs cooking today. Two are rubbed with my rub and the other one is with dizzy pig. This with be my second cook with the stumps. The first was in the down poring rain and the stumps held up great.



Chris

Greg i believe it is a cm 223. The guy I bought it from said it is about three years old. As you can see it is not a gravity fed one and from looking on their site it does not look like they make this type any more.

Here his a pic of the firebox. From what i can tell it looks like a similar concept to the jedmaster ring of fire.

WHAT ?? You're supposed to feel like $hit after a comp.
Good luck with your new rig.
I'm doing a high temp/fast cook test tomorrow....to avoid feeling like $hit.
Okay, we need pics of something cooked on that hummer.

Here are the finished ribs. They came out good. There are some changes Ill make for next time to adjust to the smoker but for the second time using the smoker they were not that bad.

LOL!!

Good luck with you cook tomorrow. I have done alot of higher heat with the gator and I have not been able to tell a difference with my butts. Briskets I was not able to get down the way I wanted them but hopefully you will have more luck. One thing you might want to watch out for is the radiant heat on the bottom grate. I found with my gator the tuning plates gave off to much heat for the meat to handle. Plus since I was burning logs flame would some times shoot into the main chamber thus creating more heat on the bottom grate. So whenever I did high heat the meat was on the top grate. Your meadow creek may cook differently but that is one thing you may want to watch out for.
