Damn wotta, you've been carrying the water in here. Awesome to see your progression! I've been over here quietly on the same path, and am now fully obsessed and intent on opening a bbq spot. Recently ordered a dual 500 gallon on a trailer from a Texas fabricator. Here's a dump of some recent cooks (also did pastrami for the first time in a while this past weekend).

Yardbird (was having trouble getting crispy skin when smoking chicken, but you can get it if you dry brine the night before and cook at a higher temp)

So that smoker I posted on the last page... I paid a deposit, but the bloke has backed out of the sale (refunded me). So im going with the big drymounter I posted a little while back. Ordering next week

Had some BeastCraft BBQ here in St. Louis. Been there quite a bit over the past year. Check them out. Think the guy is ranked pretty high up there, and he uses heritage duroc pork and waygu brisket. The pics in here got my mouth watering to get the old smoker going this weekend.

I’d say sides ARE just as important here.

so it has been done, smoker ordered.
After weighing up a few options ended up going with this already built pit. Just having the fabricator put a second cooking rack in it and mount it on a trolley on castors.
36" x 11.2 ft cook chamber, insulated firebox, removable stack. Delivery in december.

How much temperature variation do you get on something that big? The end is a loooong way from the heat source, so I assume you have to keep rotating everything for even cooking?

it's 10F difference across the entire length, was actually hoping for a little more as brisket cooking times vary so much. It's nice to have the option of rotating and cooking things a little lower

I made a smoked cajun turkey breast tonight. Costco has the frozen roasts available for a short time before Thanksgiving, so I picked up a couple. If anyone is looking for an easy, fairly quick cook, this is a good one. If you're not sure about your holiday plans this year and don't need/want to do a whole bird, it's a nice alternative.

Huh. I wouldn't have guessed that. Interesting. So I guess that's good or bad depending on your needs.
