It has far better conduction and thermal mass than a stone and will never crack or break.
It sounds like you may have already come across this thread:

That's a good idea. It looks like he just used an angle grinder.

Here is a link to most of my cook yesterday. The only thing not shown is the brisket but it didn't apply to the TD.

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...5&postcount=63

Here is the brisket. It was pretty tasty but I think I will crutch it the next time, just to save some time. I ran Earl near 300 most the day. Though will people coming over and checking out Earl ad all the other things I was cooking, the door was open quite a bit.

Here is the brisket during it's rest.



Here it is all sliced up.



All the food got rave reviews from the crowd, as did Earl!

This morning was bittersweet, though, as I helped (with a mean hangover) get Earl all loaded up on AJ's trailer to let him make some corrections and tweaks. that we have talked about over the last couple weeks. Now my poor patio looks naked! Should have him back in a week or less. Whew!

Thanks!

I think for a backyard unit, unless you just have a huge lot, the vertical configuration is hard to beat! Tons of space in a compact footprint!

I think you could easily sell a few verticals!

First congratulations on the awesome smoker. This is exactly the grill I have been wanted to build.
Now to hijack your thread, anyone know where to get plans to a smoker like this? I have a full metal shop at my house and would love to tackle this. Been tossing around buying a BGE but this is what I really want.

Thanks! I am enjoying the hell out of it! Love the capacity and the footprint!

The rough dims are in the first post of this thread. I think you'll have to work out the details yourself, though. The pics of the completed smoker should provide enough of an idea for each of the details.

Just bought a couple Grill Pads to stick side by side under Earl upon his return to keep the rust spots and grease drippings from staining the concrete. Will pressure wash his spot tonight after work...

I'm getting him figured out...for that full day cook, 5am to 8pm, I used ~6 cubic feet of wood, or the volume that fits on the rack below the smoke box. That was ~$15 in fuel. I can certainly live with that!
