Default New Custom Built Smoker

I FINALLY got my custom built pit! After having a baby and trying to find enough money to get a pit shipped out to California, I found a local welder who has been building custom pits for a few years now. He built exactly what I wanted at a great price. It's 8 feet long, 1/4 inch steel, and the smokestack is at grate level. I seasoned on Saturday with the help of NRA4Life, the pit had a 20-25 degree difference from side to side. After BBQ'in for 3 years on a cheap offset I am in heaven. I couldn't believe how constant a temp it kept. Will be getting it dirty this weekend and I cant wait.

Sweet looking pit Dannypat. What is the reason for having the smoke stack at grate level?

Thanks Neil,
I had him put the smoke stack at grate level so the heat and smoke go directly over the path of the meat. It evens out the temperature throughout the pit.

nice looking pit! I bet you saved a ton of coin having it built out there instead of having one shipped from texas!

I'm jealous of that pit. Super--and chef Jim--My wife says that if I buy a new shirt! Imagine her thoughts if I bought a pit.Find a new residence probably!
