i cooked on a smoke-n-pit for a few years now. We used it for the boys scout outings after being donated to us by sawdustguy...

Its a good pit... like arlin said it needs a baffle, i made them out of foil for a while before doing the 'tuning plate" style baffle. if u cant make a baffle at least use a pan of water next to the hot spot. i also but some water in the bottom of the pit. let us know if u need a baffle design..we have one floating around the forum somewhere.

Use 3-4 inch splits, about 4-8 inchs long.. Start with a half chimney and 1-2 splits, get to 300, damper down and let temps settle in where u want. After that, feed it a log every 45 minutes or so.. Keep a decent coalbed with some lump and you can produce excellent quality Que.
