View Full Version : Rockin'W backyard pit

12-15-2015, 06:45 AM
I was playing with my new pit last night. I set 3 oven temp gauges across the grates and two maverick gauges between the oven gauges just to look for hot spots.

Well, there are no hot spots. This thing holds a constant temp from end to end.

Thanks guys Daniel at Rockin' W Hurst Texas builds affine pit. He has really improved on the Jambo design. She cooks better than she looks and is built tolast a life time as well.

Vary cool, I have always like the Jambo design!!!

The Jambo design works very well. You control temp with the stack and just a small adjustment change the temp really fast. The pit also has a different Higher firebox intake that directs the intake down a chute type thing. As intake air flows in the metal chute heats the air and aids in the recovery time when adding fuel.

It is an improvement on a Jambo and well designed and the frame and insulated firebox are improved as well

Great looking smoker.

With the air intake thingy, does it affect flow; i.e. slow it down?

That is a great looking pit, I am sure it will put on some great Q.

Looks and sounds like a fantastic pit, congratulations.

The firebox intake sits high and the intake is shielded to prevent air blowing ash around. You just have to open the intake about 1/4 to 1.2 inch for a 250 to 300 fire.

The chute inside door directs the air down to grate level and also heats the incoming air for a faster temp recovery.

You control temps by building a small fire and with the exhaust stack valve. The small fire burns clean with a small intake and exhaust. B by any means. build a big fire and pit wants to run at 350 and is hard to drop temp without choking down fire... I'm no thermo engineer just know it works for me.

Fine looking pit. I reckon they don't want to sell many of them though. No website and no price list.

That's a nice lookin' pit!

Daniel has a facebook page go check him out there. He has built many comp cookers for several winning teams. He has been around quite a while just not always in Texas.

He won't compromise quality for $$'s by mass production and long waits. These pits are not cheap at @2,500 with all the bells and whistles. His trailer pits are knock out pits like Jambo's pits. So they may not be for everyone. Custom pit that's built to last a life time.
