Default First cook on stick burner, OK Joe's off set

It smells great and the fatty that cam off first tastes great, but have to get a better handle on temps and hot spots. Much different the a BGEgg!

Does being determined enough to smoke in the driveway under a pop up canopy in the rain make me a redneck?

More to follow when the ribs are done. Assuming I don't ruin them.

Looking pretty good!

The vertical section makes a pretty good holding area.

I wish I could capture the juiciness better.

I'm over here in Dacula, almost smoked something for lunch. Raining over here too...

Redneck? Hardly. You're wearing a BMW hat w/ a Merc on the driveway... :-)

I'm really excited how well these turned out. The flavor is much better then what i've been able to get off my egg. The best part is knowing I'll do better next time!

My chief assistant approved as well.

It is more babysitting the cooker, but I love the results so far.

Horizon Mfg. is owned by the original owner of OK Joe. He's still building pits like the Joe's. He sells diffuser plates that will fit in these cookers and help even out temps. I have one in my 20" and in conjunction with tuning plates I can get the upright close to the horizontal chamber temps. Don't think tuning plates will work very well in the 16" though as most folks say they're border line in 20" pits. However the diffuser plate should still be useful if you feel the need to try to make the temps in the horizontal more even.
