Well, it's about time I show you my pit. (Don't forget I have a pit on order and I should have it in -5- weeks and maybe I can get my Man-Card back).

The Good-One is made in Burns,Kansas and it is basically an off-set. It has a full length fire box with damper that lets the heat and smoke go up into the smoker box. The air-flow is controlled with spinners. The nice thing about the spinners is you can almost duplicate your temperature results on your next cook. There is a grill you can put in the fire-box for grilling. The smoker box has two grates and a drip pan. The fire-box has a full length pull out ash pan. This unit can cook for hours at a steady temp. I don't have to use that much wood because the unit is designed to circulate the smoke around in the smoker box before it exits the top spinner. Temperature control is maintained by the spinner settings and the damper.

It's too pretty.:msn-wink:

Never cooked on a Good One, but they look like nice grills.

t\It looks like it deserves better charcoal than that Frontier though.

It was on sale :roflmaoha0:

There is only one place in the valley that carries Royal Oak and he was out. The "Slap your Daddy" bbq team always buys out his supply!!

It was either Frontier or Cowboy at the time and the Frontier has a better smokey flavor to it imho.

There isn't alot of options out here for lump. I can get mesquite lump everywhere, and the cost of shipping lump is just sky high these days.
