    Default Living on Tulsa time...

    Howdy Y'all-
    Randy here (WhiteKnight). I've been smoking meats for years, coached and mentored along by a good friend who is a private chef. My skills are good enough that my family won't eat at a BBQ restaurant without grumbling about it. I'm sure all your families are the same.

    My three hasty bake grills turn out good product, but I spend a lot of time tending to the temperatures and worrying about my final result. I think there's just got to be a better, more efficient way. I think it's time to step up to a higher end cooker and improve my game. I'd like to gather info on personal experience with other smokers, and I'll be looking to learn your tips and tricks for better BBQ. Happy to be here.

    There several different rigs that the members here use. Let us know what you are interested in and some one should chime in and let you know their experiences. If you are looking to build, the UDS is an easy simple smoker that several folks here use. Jump in anytime.

    Welcome to The Joint!!!
    I enjoy my HastyBake mostly for grilling, but have other smokers I really like also.
    Enjoy and ask if you need help.

    peculiarmike-I really like the hasty bake for smoking, but not my favorite for grilling.

    Cabinetmaker-I'm in south tulsa, near Jenks. I'll take a look at what you have.

    Bludawg- There will probably be a UDS in my future!

    Short One- I think I want a size for about 4-6 packer briskets, that way I can mix in my chickens and have room for everything.
    I've considered about everything. Right now, I'm looking at features on the Backwoods vs Myron Mixon vs Southern Pride units, and looking to find the manufacturers that I don't know about. Trying to sort out my WANT -vs- NEED issues. Backwoods is high on my list right now.
    I'm thinking: stick/chunk/charcoal burner that seals up tight, some sort of bbq guru type auto temp control, rotisserie is neat (but probably too expensive), insulated, gas would make it easier, and I need to learn more about gravity feed. I've considered building, but for the good of my marriage, and the time it takes me to do anything, I should just let a Pro do it for me.
    Recently I got to help on a cater with a friend and we cooked all weekend on his trailer with a Southern Pride Rotisserie with gas and thermostat and it was SWEET! I don't see how it can get any easier. But way too expensive for my volume at the house.

    I'm agreeing with Mr Mike. I love my backwoods. Well, I love my drum, and my bellfab too.

    Btw, no matter what you decide on, a drum is a must have too.
