It looks like a Backwoods with a peaked roof and possibly thicker walls allowing for more insulation.

Are they scared to show the prices?

Rather spend half of the money and get a Chaney

doctordun 08-18-2012 06:07 PM

Never heard of a Chaney.
I've got a PitMaker Safe and GrillMeister Combo on order. Four weeks to go.

SHERIFF 08-18-2012 10:01 PM

You'll love your safe/grill combo.

George, Victor and Pete will take good care of you as well.

Enjoy!!!

doctordun 11-14-2012 04:18 PM

You are right. I got them and love them.

bigwheel 11-15-2012 11:03 AM

Very nice. Wished I had one.

Max 11-15-2012 08:52 PM

Dont think they make electric one there BW.

bigwheel 11-16-2012 11:29 AM

Thats where the electric element from the Brinkmann come in handy. Just slide it in the bottom and start cooking. Smart thinking. Might need to drill a hole in the fire door to run the wire. That aint no hill for a climber. I would like one with a flat roof so a person could set there root beer up there or whutever. Not sure why a dumb injuneer want to give it a peaked roof. That just dont seem right. The fella who makes the things might need our assistance.

The only thing I would change is the inlet vent. Someone on another forum suggested that a ball valve would give more control and I agree.
However, I have learned what settings will hold certain temperatures after several cooks, so it isn't as big a deal now.
I love my Safe. I've even waxed the nice red paint. Not too many smokers out there that run cool enough on the outside, to enable them to be painted something other than black. At 250degs inside, it is almost cool on the outside.

bigwheel 11-16-2012 04:18 PM

Hard to imagine one able to draw enough air through a ball valve..less it was a huge valve. In an ideal scenario the intake should deliver air the full width of the fire and with equal delivery split to the top and bottom of the fire grate. Would think the closer a person could adopt those parameters the closer to ideal would be the fire. Sliding louvers as on Kloses and Gators work best. Course since you got a bottom door that is a great place to intake air. Just open the door when it needs some air. Prop it open if needed. Smart thinking.

doctordun 11-16-2012 05:35 PM

This pit is so efficient, that all I need to maintain 225 to 250 is about an 1/4" crack in the sliding vent.
So unless I'm really cranking up the temperature, a 2" ball valve would work great.
When I am heating up the chamber, I open all the way and then restrict the air flow about 25deg from my target temperature.
Of course I pre-heat the chamber with a weed burner torch and that usually gets me about 175deg before I even start the fire.

Holy smokes! Really? 4,000 bucks? Good lord. I felt guilty spending 300 on a WSM !
Nice looking cookers , tho....

doctordun 11-17-2012 09:54 AM

Yes. It was costly. But as I get older, as with my tools, I only am satisfied with what I perceive as the best. I sold off my old smoker and a bunch of other stuff to be able to afford this.
Before this purchase I had a ceramic KAMADO that cost 1200 with shipping and that was over 10 years ago.
I enjoy this new combo a lot and that is what matters to me.
