That's a fine looking cooker.

Do you find that she likes to run at a certain temp?

She’s very easy to control wherever you want to be, but 300 ish seems to be a little easier.

One thing that I’ve found to be very freeing, is not to worry about temp swings. On my previous cookers I was very anal about temps; used control devices and the like. Now on the offset I regularly see 25, sometimes 50 degree swings. Makes no difference in the finished product. Bbq is a lot more fun now.

That’s exactly the look I was going for. Tired of feeling guilty for not washing my pit or scratching it. I had a beautiful cobalt blue Stumps. I always felt bad when it was dirty or if I chipped the paint. This one is purely about cooking.

I ordered a 1969 a few weeks ago. I’d love to see more pics of yours to get a better feel for the size of the 1975. The pics on the Workhorse site have bad contrast. I’ve noticed that most pit makers have crappy websites, LOL.

They do have crappy pics on the site. Really doesn’t do them justice. The 1975 is much bigger in person, particularly the firebox (about half the size as the cook chamber.) These pits are a REAL bargain when you see what you actually get for your money. No one comes close. 5 degrees from end to end with no baffle or tuning plates. Amazing cooker!

I discovered Workhorse only two months ago. I was set to order from another vendor and was excited to move on it. Was going to be $2k more and take two months longer than WH quoted. Then I saw their description regarding “100% straight flow offset. No tuning plate and full convection! + or - 5 degrees.” and I was hooked. I love the size and placement of the stack and I like the longer round fire ‘box’. I researched the fluid dynamics claim and I see no reason to doubt. Your observation of even temp is aligned.
Of course there are tons of great options out there. For me BBQ is a hands on, get away from everything event where I like to chill and watch the fire, so this type of setup is ideal for me.
So, would still love to see pics of your ‘75 Help a brother out as I’ve got a few months to wait.
