    Well I've been curing in the new Bubba grill for 2 days now. Could only get it up to about 320. Went thru 40 pounds of charcoal and more of my hickory than I've wanted to. And about 2 gallons of oil.Going to put it to the test at the northwestern Florida gathering. Hoping some of the smarter guys can help me with adjustments to the temps. I geuss with a bigger grill there is a bigger learning cure. Seems to maintain fairly even tamps across the whole thing. +- 20 degrees from one end to the other. Rib box gets a little hotter that I wanted but levels out. Going to try and weld up a grate for the fire box and I think that will help with the temps.
     
  2. Nice looking rig! Good luck on the learning process...at least its fun!

    Nice looking rig [​IMG] If there is no grate in the firebox then build one and put about 3" legs under it use expanded metal for the grate but be sure to run a couple cross braces so it doesn't warp and sag when it get hot.

    It will be there unless something bad happens. Everyone gets to help me break it in. That will be the first smoke on it other than me firing it 2 times and coating with some oil to season it some. Hope to burn one more time before the weekend. Can't wait to met every one and have a couple of cold ones and learn how to use this thing. Built a fire grate for it tonight so that should help with the burn.
     
  12. wow i want one! and roll tide by the way!
     
  13. Since you have had your smoker a while, how are you liking it?  I am looking to upgrade and it is between the smoker you have and a Lang...tough choice!
