My new bundle of joy!

She's all lubed up and ready for her first fire!

I'm so proud!:bounce:

It's up to 250 in only 15 minutes which I was shocked to see.
Any tips are GREATLY appreciated and wanted!

One thing I'm noticing is is that my splits are too big I think. I have the firebox side door open and some flames are coming out. I'm tinkering with the level as well front to back and making sure oil drains out.
Anyone think I should do the biscuit test while burning her in or next time (which will probably be right after the burn in lol!
Thank for lookin and wish me luck!

Congrats! Yoder builds great smokers!

Nice looking smoker. What are you going to cook first?

PatAttack 09-23-2015 09:20 AM

Nice machine, Melissa!

I would do a biscuit test to see temp. differentials for sure.

I placed my igrill probes hanging at opposite ends (not touching anything).
Closest to the firebox is 380 and farthest is 250. That really seems to be a huge difference. Maybe not?

I think for my first cook it will have to be my favorite: Dino bones!
I'm on a diet but I just can't put chicken or turkey in there as the first meat.
Don't seem right. Lol

Yoder makes a great pit! Congrats!

Tradition dictates that a naked fatty should be used to christen a new pit...

That's definitely not diet friendly....but rules are rules.
Naked fatty it is!

Congrats! We like people who can follow the rules...naked fatty is a must.:clap2: I say cook your favorite and snack on the fatty while waiting and feeding sticks. You can diet tomorrow. Do they have a tuning plate for that cooker?

That's a great question. Could explain the big temp swing.

Very nice new toy! Congrats Melissa!

Yes there is a tuning plate. It has the progressively larger holes drilled the farther you get from the fire.
Maybe it's a little leaky...first time jitters lol
