Default Back Yard Bomber BBQ MJH

Has anyone had any experience with the MJH? Pros and Cons? Does it hold temps well when it is 20 degrees out? etc etc etc

Very nice cookers, especially the newly redesigned MJH. They hold temperatures great at temps far colder than 20. On top of that, Josh is a pleasure to work with. I have cooked on the old mjh and little bomber, now I have a new MJH on order.

There were some cons for me on the old mjh, but those have all been addressed with the new design. I will say that temperature control was and is not a concern with any of his cookers. I have no doubt they would work great at -30.

Things that were addressed: bigger firebox, more space between shelves, some add on options.

Do you place a water pan at the bottom of yours? Does it still add plenty of moisture to the air? since the smoke comes from the top? I have been talking to josh, and yes very quick to reply

I use a couple of small splits to warm the metal up, but other than that I just use lump and chunks of wood.

I am not a fan of water in a cooker so I won't run it with water in it, but that is a personal preference of mine.

Last cook on the MJH used a horseshoe burn. 13.8 lb Bag of coal with chunks of Apple in the mix and it was at 240 degrees for over 15 hrs. That included using the fuel to warm it up from cold start. It was 25 degrees out with winds 10-20 mph. I cant wait to see what she'll do in the summer.



Also a Sausage Machine!



I do put a waterpan on the bottum. more so to let the grease
drip into it though. Cooking top down is where its at for me!

I would suggest all of your guys wait 4-8 weeks to order one so ours gets done faster.

Amen. I've got mine ordered on this batch too.

From my research, the 2" of insulation will keep the cooker going in the coldest weather you are going to stand going outside to smoke something. So if you can get to your smoker without a snow plow, it's going to work for you. Dollar for Dollar it seems to be the best cabinet smoker on the market.
You have until the 15th to get your order in for the MJH at $1399. It goes up $200 more after that.

Ive got a backwoods with 1" of insulation and it flat out doesnt care what is going on. had it running at 9 below multiple times this winter. the MJH has 2" and Im possitive it wont even notice the weather either.

any insulation is 100x better than none IMO. 2" is a heck of a lot

Is the gaskets on the doors stuck on with high temp silicone? How long will that last before the heat gets to it? Just wondering.

This is why I just bought an Assassin, the tape lines and seals turned me off on the bomber. Not saying its a bad cooker because of those things but after all my research on verticals I couldn't get those images out of my head!

I have had both the old MJH and Little Bomber gravity feed above 350 and had no issue with the gasket coming off. Doesn't mean it couldn't happen but it isn't something I worry about.
