Yes, they're designed as stick burners.

Default Myron Mixon Smokers

I'm going to try using hickory logs after I get a good bed of charcoal coals with my next cook. I spoke with "Myron Mixon Smokers" team members when they were in Maggie Valley. They said that they use charcoal and add a log about every hour.

We start the pit with charcoal (Kingsford match light). After about 30 minutes we start adding wood. The smokers are insulated and perform very well. They are water cookers and have automatic valves to maintain the proper water level.
I have owned several pits. I have never seen any smoker that is better built than these. I have a 72" double hog cooker on my wish list......

i attended one of his classes last July. In person he was a kind sharing person and answered every question asked. the workmanship/quality is top shelf. Seconn is doing the fabrication and their facility is top notch. We cooked a whole hog, ribs, butts & brisket and the meat was the best I've ever tasted. I have ordered a custom 60" which will cook a 150 hog. it is loading on the truck tomorrow morning and should be in cave creek, az in 6-7 days. The pits are not cheap, but you typically get what you pay for. i'll post some reviews after I get some experience with it.

Please update us coffee guy! So far the reviews look promising from the owners of these pits. I'll just have to live thru the brethren who can afford these smokers and keep playing mega millions
