I'm still on step one with this pit. Temp control and temp variance within the pit.

Here are results of what I found to be true so far.

As long as there is water in the pan and the heat diverter is in place it will nail 235 to 270 with no effort and last for about 6.5 hours on one load of regular ole KF charcoal.

The top portion of the box cooks hotter than the bottom near the water pan.

Also it it hotter toward the back wall of the box which is where the heat goes out the stack.

The next set of ribs I do will be placed one rack above the water pan(about 4 inches, with the thickest part of the rib toward the back wall. They will also be cooked face down. This part is new to me because the Stumps likes em cooked face up and in the top.

If any BWS users out there has found different results in this Chubby, I'd like to here it so I can compare notes.

They look good to me Ron! I have a Fatboy and love it. Hook up a DigiQ II Guru to it and you'll have temp variances of less than two degrees. I also hooked up a little water cooler (autofill) outside device to keep the water pan full. When I see the water jug is empty, I know that the water pan is still full and have plenty of time to refill the bottle. Keep that water pan full at all times and you shouldn't have any problems with temp gyrations.

I think once the new Kingsford lump briquettes come out you'll have the perfect fuel for long, steady, burns in your Chubby!

Have fun with it!

I got 10 bags of Rancher stashed for comps this year until I can travel a couple States over to get more. I too am waiting on the new KF!

I'm also going to fab up an adapter for my Stoker.

Habour Freight for $79.00

Works like a charm. I just used heavy duty tie wraps to hold it down. That way I can cut them and leave the cart if I want to.

Looks good to me. Have lots of fun with your new cooker. By the way I will take those ribs if you don't won't them.
