Default The Good One Rodeo just FYI

FYI in case anyone is looking at Good One smokers. I have a Rodeo, I use it for catering does a fantastic job eats a fair amount of fuel. Being a machinist /pipe fitter I manufactured a LP pipe burner in the bottom of the ash pan for firing up the charcoal, takes only about 15 to 20 minutes to turn a 40 lb bag white hot pretty much maintains a full burn the full cook. I add some charcoal about ever couple of hours or so. maintains 250 for the whole cook without hardly any tweaking. I also added smaller mesh removable grates in the fire box so only ash falls below.
This cooker turns out some fantastic meat. I get the best cook on the top 3 racks the bottom rack temp is quite a bit lower.
The only problem I'm running into is the health dept prefers NSF cert smokers but they kind of look the other way for now. I may go to a Ole Hickory CTO in the near future.
