I used to be able to PUT IT AWAY. My dad would say 'I can only have one, maybe two, before they don't taste good' and I thought how silly. Beer tastes good all day!

Now I am the same way. Haven't drank more than three beers in decades.

Now wine, THAT I can still put away, cognac or bourbon too, but I will pay for it dearly.

Pitmaker Vault! True stickburning with set and forget. I cooked lunch over a baby fire and I’m still holding 200 six hours later, I’m curious how long it’ll go before dropping, it’s 34 degrees outside BTW

Nothing ruins one's desire to cook with a stick burner like a COS. The truth is, it's not for everyone. Most of my friends think I am crazy to get it up in the middle of the night to tend to a fire. That is until they eat the food. What they don't understand is that I find enjoyment in the process but even I don't want to do it all of the time which is why I own a BGE. Both tools produce great BBQ but I take a lot of satisfaction in being able to cook with a wood fire. My best BBQ comes off of the stick burner according to everyone who eats it.

Exactly my feelings. I started out with a Backwoods Party (still have) then a Fatboy, then a Pro Jr. One day I tasted some que that was cooked on a Gator and mine eyes were opened lol. Significantly better than what I had been cooking.

First came the Big Green Egg. I was mad everyday that I had to goto work and not cook on the Egg. Then came the Lang, 8 cooks so far, still not 100% it's for me. Like it was said, you have to micromanage the sticks and temps. On the Egg, set it and walk away. Then the stick burner does give you the excuse that I can't do any house chores

I got less flak for using a mayo slather on my brisket.

I think the reason why I never fell into the phase of not liking my stick burner because I learned to not sweat the small stuff from the start. I cook at a temp range. If it’s too hot it’ll be done quicker too cool it’ll take longer. I let it do it’s thing and that’s what I enjoy. Don’t get me wrong...losing sleep sucks. But it’s what I enjoy and that’s why I do it.

Different strokes...

If everyone liked stick burners there’d be no other type of cookers sold.

Just kidding. Have to applaud you just a little bit for not being afraid of the backlash. Hopefully you have a good sense of humor.

thanks.
in actuality, from what Ive heard/ read, the true bbq was using embers, not wood - and this wood deal is fairly new?

this is my second try stick burning. first try I was using a POS(pitiful offset) and went to the UGLY DRUM. the first cook I did on the drum was the best cook I had ever done but I felt like the smoke was light on it. so after a while of great que on the drum I built a vertical stick burner, and felt the smoke was light, so to make sure it wasnt the drum, I bought an decent offset smoker, and what do you know, light clean smoker but tons of work.
I say that to say, this was not my first rodeo on the offset, and who knows it may not be my last.

Yep! The day that pushed me over the edge to buy a stick burner was when I went to brethren GTR's house for pig picking holiday party IIRC 4 years ago. The best dang bbq I tasted ever. Greg loaded up a big zip lock bag of leftovers for me to take home and the pleasant aroma of meat and smoke filling the interior of the car is still fresh in my mind. It is different. And yes COS's kill dreams.
