Default Shirley warmer temps

I'm currently shopping for my first quality smoker and the Shirley 24x42 is top of my list. Does anyone know the temperature difference between the cook chamber and warmer? I'm trying to decide if i need/want the warmer option and what i could use it for. Is it low enough to cold smoke some things while the brisket cooks? So far i've spent more time researching smokers than I did my car so I appreciate any advice you can offer.

On my 24x55 with insulated fb my warmer runs 150-160 when I have the main cook chamber at 300. With regular fb it runs 200ish. You can open the exhaust on the warner and get the temp to go down.

I've been accused, cough cough wife, of buying toys with the most lights and buttons. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing it again. Or if I was I had a good reason.

That's a common, highly contagious disease around here.

I use mine often..i have the damper and the main chamber damper and can operate the warmer and cook chamber at any temp i need....i usually do chicken and brisket in main chamber at 300 degrees along with ribs in the warmer at 250-275 degrees.....or its great just to cook in just the warmer for smaller cooks

150 insulated, 200 uninsulated just from radiant heat.

It really shines as a stand alone wood fired oven. I'll load it up with oak and cook pizzas, steaks, direct grill chicken, or hang meat in it like a pbc. It's super versatile Loooove it!

This is the Shagstone - http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=222763

Totally separate from my Shirley smoker, but the griddle top was built by Paul Shirley.

I would get the warmer for sure. I do a lot of grilling in the warmer, and it is great to warm splits up in the winter.

My FB is not insulated and the warmer sits around 200. I use it almost every cook.
