Really just a test cook. Fatty and beef ribs. Ran at 225 for an hour and 275 the rest of the time. Used about a pound of pellets per hour. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181021/d10194ff359bda699b078fef153e5c76.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181021/20ff8c7f07899b53643f99fc566c0c4f.jpg

I notice you post this in Wood Pile instead of Q-Talk. How subtle. :pound:

4.5 hours nekkid, 1 hour wrapped. Might be the most tender I've ever cooked. Clean smoke flavor. Good bark. Little bit of smoke ring. I'm very happy.

Nice. Very nice. :thumb:. So were you sold on using a pellet cooker regularly?

So the giant pan is basically a deflector for all the heat form the heat arm?

I think so. For sure when I'm in a hurry.

It's a drip/ grease pan that is angled towards the grease drain channel that drips into a bucket. The heat deflector is beneath the drip pan. Although the grease pan does divert heat... so maybe.

Does the same thing on mine. Even does it during the cook.

I’m not going to start a smoke ring thread, it usually devolves into beans vs no beans. But I’m getting the most beautiful smoke ring off my pellet cooker. Yours looks perfect
This article explains it. Colder meat at a couple hours lower heat with a good rub.

https://www.texasmonthly.com/bbq/the-science-of-the-smoke-ring/

On other cookers Id let them advance to 275* give or take before placing the meat. Now it goes in somewhat cold and sits in there at 225* for a couple hours.

Another advantage to pellet. While that ring may not affect taste, it does have an effect on how most non Q folks view it.

Yep. Nice to be able to turn out quality Q when you don't have much time. I've got a pork shoulder going on mine tomorrow, first long cook on on the new cooker. I normally don't have Monday off, but took a long weekend for our weddin' anniversary. :)

Good lookin' cook! :thumb:
