    Default My new Backwoods

    I finally got my new Backwoods smokers in Friday,

    As one would expect, like any other new toy, I couldn't wait to take it out of the box and play with it. Friday night I did 15# of chicken leg quarters just to burn it in. Saturday some spares, and Sunday some sockeye salmon.

    This Guru thing is too cool. On Saturday I loaded about 7# of Ozark Oak lump and about 1 # of hickory and lit one corner. The guru held it @ a perfect 225 for 7 hours. I figured it was about all burnt out but when I went to empty and reload it on Sunday, I found that it was't even half burned.

    This one is a custom "Party" model.
    It looks like the one in the picture except it's 5" deeper and on a stand with casters.

    These things are built like brick **** houses a well. Grates and all, I'll bet it weighs about 250#.

    Pix of the unit and the cooks to follow. I forget to bring the SD card from the camera to work with me today but I couldn't wait to tell everybody about my new toy.

    And yes, Lucille is VERY jealous.

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    Very nice!

    Welcome to the insulated world..........now that you are "in" just wait until you find yourself getting mad about how fuel your other cookers use.

    I can cook a butt in my Stumps with less charcoal than cooking chicken in my WSM.

    Congrats again on the new toy.

    Very nice! That is not much charcoal. Where did you put it on your deck? Are you adding on?

    130# is the weight per the link I followed:
    http://www.theqjoint.com/backwoods/party.html
    Agree it looks heavier than that for sure.

    It is a lot heavier than the standard because it is 5" (about25%) deeper for one, and also because they have to use the heavier custom racks due to the size. Add on a fair amount for the weight of the stand and it adds up fairly quickly.

    Being set on casters, it can go about anywhere on the deck but right now it's sitting right by the support pole on the east side.
