    Hey guys. Just picked up this New Braunfels El Dorado pit. Its an old one made in the USA its HEAVY for its size.

    I think its a pretty cool design. Not that I needed another smoker, just thought it was cool.

    I paid $90 for it, its in real nice shape

    just thought I would share. I have never seen one like this before

    thanks.

    actually I did a test burn the other day after I brought it home. With the firebox underneath like that, I was not sure what to expect. I have a stickburner so I know fire management so that helps.

    There is a market by me that has pre marinaded 1/2 turkey breasts ready to go, I make them every few weeks on my OTS. I was planning on grilling one the night I brough the new pit home, so I got it on the Weber then started playing with the new pit.

    I got it up to about 300 in no time, it was running real well so i thought what the heck, throw the bird on

    It came out real good. I used a water pan for a heat deflector, the heat outlet is right below it, a 4 x 4 in hole

    Lot to learn about this pit, but i think it will work fine. I plan on taking it to me cabin once I get it all figured out

    Mr. Butt, we will need directions to the cabin. Promise WE WILL ALL bring meat AND beer (and probably whiskey). LOL

    LOL thanks

    I was at my cabin all weekend, just got home. I did not take the new pit with me. Its still at my house

    I still need some time with it figuring it out, what kind of fire will work best with it

    I did some cut up chicken just now for dinner, came out fine but I still need to practice with this cooker before I try any long cooks with it
