What's this?

It tells you where your hot spots are on your cooker. Take the canned premade biscuits and place them evenly spaced over your grate. Watch how they cook. Hotter areas of the grate will cook the biscuits faster.

Here's a thread that details the biscuit test - the end results reveals your hot/wam/cool zones within your pit.

24x60 is the main chamber length. 24x24 firebox. JJ did give me tips for plate placement which is why tuning was pretty easy. I was just wondering about the theremometers is all. Ill be giving the biscuit test a try today. Any reason to fire up the pit is good enough for me.

All of my guests that came over for the party were really impressed. Theyd never seen a pit like that. So then we got into the conversation of cost. Its no secret, so I told them I spent just a lil over $3000 on her. There eyes opened and the comments rolled in. Man thats a lot for a pit. Just go to HEB or Academy and get one from there. I asked each one something unique to them. How much were your tires, the sound system in their car, how many pits had they gone through? Some of these guys spent more on tires and rims! I told 'em all that sheet you guys bought will have to be replaced in a few years. My pit... ill be dead before having to replace it. "Yeah thats true". I know its true!! Thats why I bought it!!
