Default Done with the stick burners

yes, ive been cooking with wood recently, trying to love it, but cant.

clean burning wood taste is a very mild flavor, just like charcoal so no advantage to the wood burner,

BUT,
-the woodburner requires constant attention,
-temperature ranges are ±75 degrees , instead of ±5 degrees on the charcoal burner
-have to buy the wood and then age it for months
-cant put food on the cooker and leave and do something else. I feel like Im either adding wood or adjusting intake every 30 minutes.

yes, Im pretty much done with wood burners as I have found no value added.

Im going back to the charcoal UDS where you can fill up the bag, set the ATC, add a couple of chunks, and cook low and slow for 15 hours, hardly touching the cooker

Stick Burners aren't for everyone.

You just joined the Thoey63 Club - now sell the stickburner and buy an LSG IVC.

Yep. In fact it's even easier to do Ribs in the crockpot and brisket in the oven. No added benefit to have to even go outside. Little liquid smoke and you're good to go.

Don't know why it took me so long to see the truth!!

Cooking should be enjoyable, so do what you gotta do!

At least you didn't spend a lot of money on the Pecos.

Somebody better get the word out to all those BBQ joints that are doing it wrong.

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.

I sold mine too. My reasons were No skills or patience. A beer or two every 30-45 minutes matching sticks wasn’t healthy

I’m going back to stick burning. I’ve been through them all and still have the drums and the egg. I can understand where you are. I’ve been there. I still am in certain situations. Looking forward to getting another stick burner now.

A lot of work but the payoff is totally worth it and it's FUN. Best bbq for me is off the stick burner so I'll always have one in the mix. With that said, my stick burner season is fall through spring. I don't like tending the fire during those hot arse summer months so I use my other cookers. Like mentioned above though, it's not for everyone. Good luck!

I do both. Prefer the taste and capacity of my stickburner but like to sleep while my UDS does it's thing. My business partners Humphreys is also pretty convienent. My new Assassin will be a nice addition.

Different strokes for different folks. I like all strokes of bbq.
