ATBBQ has some new photos posted for the Wichita. The vent is now lowered in the photos. I didn't see any changes in the Cheyenne photos yet.

No mention of "New and Improved" anywhere. Maybe the difference in performance was too subtle to mention.

I did pull the trigger on the "updated" Kingman... Will get it in a few weeks.
Will get interesting if it works as it should, it's a bit of gamble with my $$$...


Since there was almost no complaints on the original Kingman, it hopefully gets even better with the new door on it.

I'm just curious why you decided to go with the Kingman? Have you read about the issues with other Yoder offsets before you made the purchase?

Yes I did..


Did talk to an BBQ Team that uses Kingman and they were very satisfied.
I've read all Slamkeys posts here and there, and I was about to get the Witcita but since many owners appears to have some issues with old and new door I decided to not buy that one.


Also I live in Europe, and Yoder is more or less the only real USA offset smoker you can order. I did talk to Horizon several times, but they didn't get back to me with shipping, so their loss. Also talked to Gator Pits, but the shipping was sadly insane.


If there are any issues with airflow with the Kingman I will mod it.


Will post more soon as I tried it out...

Got my Kingman today and played with it for several hours.


Will post pictures and a longer update later on.
After some cleaning and inside oiled up it was time to fire it up.


To keep it short, Kingman works as it should I must say.


Even if I haven't touched an offset before I had no problem maintaining 225-250F (left side) and 250-275F (right side).



I could get it close as 0-25F between both sides.


I noticed that keeping a small fire was the way to go, one wood split a time to keep even temperature.


No coal bed, just added some logs and fired it up with my propane burner.
No kiln dried wood, took some dry birch-wood some the pile from my father in law.

No need to add charcoal, just one log now and then.

Today it was no wind at all, and hot outside (27C).

Nice smoke, everything from clear to thin blue smoke.



I have the "updated" Kingman with air intake little bit lower than before.

I still has lots to learn and it will be a pleasure to make some Q on this one.

Intake damper was 1/3-1/2 open, no need to have it fully open!



I'm glad that I took the Kingman instead of the Wichita.


Will post more soon as I can...
