HUGELY HELPFUL. Thank you. This guy is operating in my hometown of Fairbanks, but since I moved away from there 11 years ago I never ran across him and didn't know he existed. No better guy on the planet to talk to about how to smoke in interior Alaska than him! I've shot off an email to him. Thank you for your help!

We do have one and love the food it produces. It is a smoker and not a grill. Has our run at temps over 275. Yes. I have cooked as little as one chicken Breast on it. They are thermostat controlled. I wouldn’t call it a everyday cooker. We also have a Hasty Bake and a MAK pellet grill. The temps are accurate in the cooker,but it cooks faster at 275. Then our MAK does. Any questions please ask. I did go and tour the plant when they built ours. Well made and designed

Dang and I just sold a double insulated Backwoods Chubby that would have been perfect for you. Bummer!

I'm not sure which OH model y'all are talking about with the 275* limit, but the ones I have used have all had a 350* upper limit. I wish that was a bit higher, but it certainly was not 275*. I had it shut down on me at least once...I would set my temp at 325* for chicken. Somehow it overshot and shut down when it hit 350*. Had I not been paying attention we would have had late chicken that day. For that reason, I wish the upper limit safety was something like 375*.

They cook great...and you can get the smaller versions for home use...they still hold alot of meat.

The Ole Hickory pits listed at Big Poppa smokers show a max temp of 275. If you look at Ole Hickory's site the pits they have are somewhere above 300.

I gotcha. Didn't know that. The only times I have purchased Ole Hickory products has been from Ole Hickory. Yep...upper limit is 350 from the company.
