Yoder cheyenne

  1. I'm about to pull the trigger on my first stick burner, the Yoder Cheyenne, but I have a couple questions first from anyone that has experience with this unit.

    1. Is there room to cook two 10-15lb briskets at the same time?

    2. What size(length) do you recommend for the wood splits? I'm currently cutting a bunch of Sugar Maple and I figure I might as well get some drying.

    Nice smoker! I bet it fits a couple.
    I need one of those lol
    Good luck..
    Fire box cooking grate is 15" so that sounds like a good stick size..
    Hope someone else comes by to say for sure.. 33.5 x 15 inch cc grate area sounds decent.. you just have to angle the briskets a bit .. if you cut smaller splits than 15" you may use those to regulate temps easier than big splits. So maybe 6" or 8" splits you could use also..

    How about an Oklahoma Joe Longhorn reverse flow? It's bigger and you save $300 plus some shipping . and you can do mods to seal it up etc..

  4. I do like the Oklahoma Joe but I don't want to buy something that needs to be modded to bring it up to a higher standard. Plus with the Yoder being a much heavier gauge steel it's lifespan is going to be much longer and better heat retention. Not that I don't like saving some money but I don't mind spending some extra for a higher quality.
