It finally arrived and it is a beaut! Went down David Klose's factory in Nov (was in FTW, Tx visiting pop) and met the man himself. Great guy and great place! Got the 20x42 with 1/2" firebox (for smoking when its 0*), 2nd grate, 8" wheels (to get it through the snow), a a few other extras. Time to season it. Coated the entire insides with peanut oil and gonna let it go for most of the day. Cant wait to use it!

Before and after pics from seasoning.
After almost 9 hrs (started around 0800 hrs). Charcoal, peach, hickory, and cherry used. Had temps from 150* to 350*. Let it "cook" at 230* for most of the time.
Everyone makes a mistake every now and them..... OOPS! Still works though, but when the battery is done, its done...

:thumbs up: Great pit, Geoff. She's a beaut. Now, let's see how she runs.

Everyone makes a mistake every now and them..... OOPS! Still works though, but when the battery is done, its done...

:roflmaoha0: I'd say a little overdone. What was the final temp?
