Default First real cook on my new offset

The weather was pretty awful on Saturday but I had people to feed. I got 6 racks of ribs, 30 brats, and 24 chicken thighs in the main chamber and I was able to cook 20 pieces of corn on the cob over the firebox. The ribs got away from me and were fall off the bone instead of pull off clean tender. My guests didn't seem to mind though.

Anyway, I don't have a handle on the small hot fire concept yet. I guess I just need more practice. Overall, i am very happy with my new offset.

This is what I learned from the cook. Top left section of the cooking chamber gets the most smoke. Bottom right gets the most heat. Maintaining thin blue is easier said than done for someone new to offset cooking. The temp is pretty even from one side to another. About 10 degree difference.

I wonder If I haven't seasoned my oak long enough yet. It has been around 8 months. I was really fighting the wind also. Also I seem to lose a lot of heat when I open the door to the main chamber. I am not sure how long I should wait or it to recover before just throwing more wood on.

I have a 20x36 offset from Pits by JJ. It is just such a different animal from everything else I have cooked on before. I never used an offset cooker before this so I am learning how to maintain a clean fire.

Regarding the pit, the build quality on it is phenomenal. I just don't see how it could be better. But I never saw a Gator pit or a Klose so I can't make a relative comparison.

Amen to that Brother! Every time I fire up the smoker, I learn something! As long as everybody enjoys the food, it's all good!

You have a really good quality cooker there so you just need to learn how it behaves. in time you will master the fire and the pit. Enjoy the ride!

I love my ribs "fall off the bone". And the majority of the people I talk to and sell to feel the same.
Your Q looks great.
