New Cooker

I just added a Backwoods Fatboy to my collection of smokers. Arrived yesterday, and seasoned it last night. I've got it warming up now with some lump charcoal and will add some Smokenlicious hickory to the fire soon. Also trying out the new DigiQ II. I'll be cooking a couple of racks of spareribs and a pork butt for final practice for next weeks comp.

I'll post pictures soon!

Thanks Greg, I also read somewhere that six of the nine finalist at this years Memphis in May were cooking on Backwoods Smokers.

It's like a cadillac version of a WSM. Its a water smoker and insulated so it will cook under any weather conditions.

You won't need many options. I added a couple of extra slide ins so I could space the racks further apart, also added the heat diverter, and a handle to help pull it up on the trailer, and most importantly four casters. I also ordered a cover. You might want to consider adding tie downs if you will be transporting it to contests.

The fatboy really moves easy on those caster. You can pull it with one finger, its that easy despite the fact that it weighs 275 lbs.
