I ordered the Insulated Vertical from Lonstar Grillz last week, but I am having second thoughts after seeing your beast and watching the videos on the vertical offset and warming oven.

I really like the oven option without using smoke

Yeah, I guess it depends on weather you're a set it and forget it guy or if you don't mind tending a fire. As a long time stick burner user the model that I chose was a no brainer and you're right about the oven, the versatility that it gives you is frightening! I can smoke at 275 in the main chamber and bake cornbread in the oven at 400 at the same time, it's by far the most functional warmer/oven I've ever seen. Down the road I may have Chris build me a trailer pit for competitions and I'll guarantee you that the oven WILL be going on there when I do!

I doubt that I'll ever fill the thing up, but if I need to cook a lot of food, I know that I can!
I bought the 24x60 trailer pit with vertical. Only thing I wish I would have done is got it with a insulated firebox. Other than that, I have no complaints.

Had I not opted for the warmer/oven I would have gone for the insulated box myself. I get pretty good economy with the 1/2" firebox along with the oven on top which captures the heat that would normally be lost. It gets good and hot in there and the heat radiates through the right side of the cabinet which helps maintain the cooking temperature in the main chamber. I only use a little more fuel than I did with the old NB Black Diamond!

Nice to read all of the good reviews. I am 5 to 7 weeks out on the one I ordered. I chose the 24''x48'' with 24''x24''x36'' vertical smoker. Time has sure slowed down since I put in the order!

These good reviews are getting me excited!!
I recently received a quote from Chris for a 24 x 30 w/oven and I'm gonna make a decision soon. The cooking capacity is enormous! I plan on cooking butts hawaiian style and I need to keep the pork really moist. Have you used that smoker with water?

Question: Do you think the 1/2 firebox is a necessary option in Hawaii or should I just stick with the standard 1/4?

As for the oven, I was hoping I could get the temp in the oven down to 165 for jerky but it sounds like she gets a too hot! Might have to leave the door cracked open LOL

Happy to hear all who are enjoying their LSG smokers and all who are buying their LSG smokers!

Aloha
