Spicebox works awsome.
If you are in Florida call me and you can test drive one.

As much as I'd like to have a Lang or a Klose there's no doubt I'd order something from brother Jay. No doubt at ALL.

Backwoods all the way. Proven cooker.
I wish I could have afforded the Professional

use the professional to compete??

I was trying to think of a cute answer but.....I just can't help but say I love our two Spicewines.

I like our Lang84 Deluxe also, but it's not as cute as Jay and his Spicewines. :wink: :-D

Backwoods are just a knock-off Spicewine IMHO! :lol:

Nitro, I can vouche for the Spicewine cookers, as can any number of us around here who compete and win with them.

Below is our smoker and the 2006 results. To me, THAT is PROVEN. Period!

Jeffie's opening a trophy shop...

Pass it on.... and nice 1st year BTW!

Back on topic........I'm not going to say anything bad about any of your choices, as they will all put out quality Q. It's not the cooker, it's the cook. That charcoal feeding system on a Stump's is about the only thing I can think of that's different. Right? Best of luck in your decision!

Thanks Kick!! I was just getting ready to post that it is all about what you want in a cooker. You buy it , learn how to Master it and you succeed . Thanks to all of my Spice owners but there are allot of good cookers out there. You just have to find the one that makes you happy. And above all bring home the Bacon!!

I wasn't trying to diminish any smoker out there. Just saying that Spicewines ARE proven cookers. I wasn't feelin' the love! :lol: :wink:

I wrote to Spicewine before I bought my Backwoods Competitor asking
why I should buy a Spicewine instead of a Backwoods and never heard
word one back.. So I bought the Backwoods..

Those rigs look nice, but I kinda favor a Gator if I had the money to buy anything I wanted. I love offset stick burners and cooking over an open fire in cast iron. Klose are quality too. I am getting my Lyfe Tyme tomorrow... woo hooo. I don't think I'm settling necessarily, except for the bells and whistles. I can cook on plain jane no problem and it is definitely a step up from my lil New Braunsfel (sp?).

But I do agree that it is the cook not the cooker, I can put good (great if you believe those offering comments) food out on anything you give me to cook on (with a little practice). MHO

The rolling eyes are for Jeff. :-P

Mine would probably be a Greer Pit...or a customer Klose..but both are too much money for me.

For the money I would like a slightly used double Spicewine on a large trailer.

:lol: Gee thanks! :wink: I didn't set that up just for this thread. We did it last weekend for Jay to use and I thought what the hell? You know, there's been a lot of discussion here about how it's the cook, not the cooker but I'm not quite ready to give ourselves that much credit just yet so I'm still saying it's the cooker! :wink: :-P

Well Ribbons are nice but trophys........I like my Backwoods and I don't believe it's a knockoff of anything. I could be wrong though. http://www.ismellsmoke.com/joomla/images/zoom/XZQJCN/viewsize/June_2005_Team_Awards_2.jpg

How about the Caldera?

That works pretty good too ;) as does the FE. But i mostly use my Backwoods. The Caldera might see more action this summer though. I'm thinking If I travel light I can travel longer distances. Me, a cooler, a table, an ez up, a chair and my Caldera. Could be fun.

That sounds like a good line-up for the NH contest in January. Congratulations on all your success Steve.

Are you going to join us Rich or will you be snowed in ? You won't even need your freezer to make a clonecicle just leave the bottle on your porch.

Steve I'll probably come down buy not to cook on my own. A Lang doesn't work in the northern winter. Do you know anyone who needs a tall, full-figured, good looking and modest dish washer who's not afraid of the cold?

Since were not talking realiy a Spice or similar pit that could burn one log for 12 hrs. What do you thing Jay, possible? I could cook all year on $30 in fuel. But honestly I would have a cooker for each meat that holds great temp. So a spice, stumps, FEC100, BGE etc. would be my choice.

Jorge

Jay builds a beautiful cooker. Seeing it in action in Columbia, I was sold on it being a quality cooker. I'm a stick burner, but.....I've gone to Jay's page more than once and given it some thought.

I don't know Jay that well, but I know him well enough to know that he takes pride in his work, and that he is a man of his word. I've yet to hear bitch #1 from anybody that has ever purchased one of his cookers. Those factors carry a lot of weight when it comes time to stroke the check.

I'm going to let Jay have a nice week off for his birthday next week, happy birthday Jay, then drop by with some plans for a cooker that could be a protoype for a double insulated offset firebox Spicewine cooker.....charcoal or sticks...could be an interesting concept, or may not be possible at all....time and deep thought will tell....

I think it's a few seasons worth it was taken sometime in 05 I think. In 06 I Smell Smoke collected around 29 trophies and Team Agave collected a few.
