Picked this home built unit up over the weekend. Price was too good to pass up, I just had to get it. Gee, do you think $250 was too much to pay for this?
Here it is just towed home...
Here it is cleaned up...
Overall it is in excellent condition. I have a few mods in mind.
Saturday night I broke it in with two pork butts and three racks of beef ribs. Even with a ventilation problem (the right side is not as sealed as I want it to be) I was able to maintain a 225 - 260 temp, with spikes up to 300 for 11 hours. Used Kingsford and applewood. No pics of the cook, was too drunk.
I bet I could cook 30 briskets on this big boy!
