G2 party
 
Just got word from backwoods smokers that my g2 party with be powder coated. That just made my day and will be done next week. I am like a kid in a candy store right now. :)

Sounds nice, just be sure not to get it too hot, I think powder coating flakes off at around 350 or 375ish!

tyotrain 12-28-2012 01:23 PM

Most my cooking is done at 275F.

I hear they are redoing the firebox for better airflow

tyotrain 12-28-2012 01:33 PM

I would have to say powder coat will be far better than paint. Did hear that about the firebox

I put a nice scratch in my chubby (lol) and it hasnt rusted yet. found some burgandy spray paint today. got to figure out if its ok to paint a small scratch at 20 degrees. might be time for a garage heater

I was told today my G2 will be black that they canceled the burgundy color.

Yeah tyotrain I have one on order too and it will be the black powder coating too. Hadn't heard anything about a new firebox design and I haven't read a bad review yet about cooking on the G2s so I'm a little sceptical that they are redesigning the firebox. Sounds like yours is on the same build schedule as mine so they may be neighbors on the freight truck.

The issue may be due a little more to the lack of overhead clearance on the chubby firebox to heat diverter area. just a guess

Do you mind filling us in by what you mean by tweak? I know there is a clearance issue with the chubby as mentioned above but that isn't present with the party so I'm curious.

If you look at the firebox and the ash pan, there isnt alot of great airflow except from overhead. I would think just drilling some holes in the side would open it up more. Ill try to link a picture that might show what I mean
