All insulated verticals rock! What else on earth could cook 5-10 briskets on 10 lbs of charcoal and a few chunks of wood.
JMoney, this is good info dude. You know I'm a neophyte on the Assassin and Guru, so any advice is appreciated sir. I will be sure to watch things closely as changes occur - food in, food out, etc.
I was thinking of adding water to the pan for my next smoke, when I'll put a pair of briskets in the Assassin - although I'm not against a dry smoke. I understand warmup will take longer and fuel use will be higher, but I've done good smokes on stickburners using water too.
Anyway, appreciate the help.
