Default Stick Burners and Big A#$ed Smokers Call

I am trying to find an efficient way to get the low down on who are the stick burners and who has smokers weighing in excess of 500 or so pounds?

I have tons of video footage and stuff on mods to these type of smoker and would like to share and learn what others are doing.

Here is my smoker "Meat Mamma 3000." Every ounce was built from custom steel (Not a used or New Tank... although I wished at one time I would have spent more time on the firebox design and just buy a 500 or 600 gallon round tank).

I am in NO WAY saying my smoker is better than an UD or even a bullet... Just that this is the way I roll for the bulk I do and would like to talk design (Or fixing design FLAWS) of their smoker or my smoker as it evolves.

The closest thing to my smoker would be a Southern Yankee Rotisserie smoker that was designed back when Troy Austin (of ANS) still worked with them.

Damn, I thought I qualified as a big A#$ed Smoker all by myself. Didn't realized you were talking about pits.

On the serious side, yours looks like one nice smoking machine.

Looks like the Klose rotisserie smoker would have some similarities to yours. Twin stacks, firebox accross the back. They are really nice to cook on -

Your question is a little confusing, but how does your smoker cook? are you having problems with hotspots, uneven cooking, or temp control? Also, I would love to see some pics of the innards of that beautiful smoker.

My little Lang is 970lbs according to the website, but I believe that it cooks completely differently as she is a reverse flow smoker.

bar, I don't have a big rig like that but....I did stay in a Holiday Inn last night. The one thing that I wander about is the position of the firebox. The design looks fine but it looks like the firebox is somewhat high on the smoking chamber. It may just be the picture. Just a visual observation. Lot of heavyweights here that can give good advise.

It is nice though, I too would like to see the inside.

Ah very good this is nwhat I am talking about. Big Stacks and on the sides... other than ease of weld and look i see he put the stacks exit on the side. If Klose puts them there.... then they are supposed to be there. I climbed his fence once on X mas LOL. Thanks

There are no gas burners inside the actual grill for cooking.
