Picked up my new smoker yesterday in Burleson. Met the famous Jamie Geer, had a nice visit with him. He quit taking orders not long after I ordered mine last July. His grandson will be taking over the business soon. Now I need to get a membership at Costco and get to cooking!
Patio looks really bad with this shiny unit on it, will be planning a backyard makeover.

Man, that's flying first class. Great looking smoker and love the Bronco. I've come to the conclusion Costco has the rudest customers on the planet. I went Saturday and man I got PO'd at the rude behavior of shoppers. Thinking I might try Sam's out. Congrats, post up some brisket and ribs.

Wow, that's fancy! But fitting for the beautiful Bronco.

flame Are you nutz! Man, when we had a membership, I could only handle Wednesday, at 10am when they opened. Those customers block the aisles just for the hell of it and it's an all-day event for some of them. Life's way too short for that crap.

Nice pit for sure. Gonna do the bread or biscuit tests on it? To see how even the heat is.

The deal with this offset is there aren’t any hot spots, except right next to fire inlet, due to radiant heat from the deflector plate. Several champions use a Jambo. But I may do the test during the first fire.

I would be interested in seeing the results.

I don't have an offset anymore, used to have a 250 gallon pit, but sold it 7 years ago. Stopped doing cook offs, so didn't get much use at all for a couple years. That test is something I saw one of the big pit masters Tuffy Stone do when testing out a new pit. Just to see how even the heat was distributed across the cooking area.

First 3 hour test fire went off without a hitch today. Got a cheap loaf of white bread and spread it out, 20 minutes @275°. Only hot spot is right next to firebox deflector plate, just like the builder told me. Upper shelf on left is called the microwave shelf, it runs a little hotter. Will make a meat run in a few days.

Fired it up for a rack of St. Louis style pork ribs today. Wind changed from SE to NE mid cook, so temp control was challenging. Left them on a little too long, so fall off the bone. But wife and I were happy with them.
