Thanks all.
First lesson - it takes an hour to get the thin blue smoke , even if the sticks are on fire.

Finally got it though

Excellent place to run your Pecos.

Much better view than I have when I run my Pecos, lol.

Great score.

Great smoker.

Get a stash of hickory and other woods and get ready to feed the beast.

I've run my Pecos a couple times and have been able to get thin blue smoke in a fairly quick time.

I begin with a layer of Kingsford from a full chimney load.....then lay some dry wood over the hot coals....and run it with the door & smoke stack both wide open.

A buddy gave me a tip to leave the door wide open for a few minutes after laying new sticks in there for a few minutes...then close door with vent fully open.

It worked like a charm.

Excellent smokers that are well laid out.











Initial look after placing the first sticks over the KBB.....








View 20 mins later.......










You are gonna love that smoker....and again, very sweet location to smoke yer meat.

I have only had my offset for a few months but I have had great luck getting the cooker ready to cook in 20 min or less using the weed burner, it has changed my life. Not only for the offset but the santa maria and barrel are ready in no time also.

Grats on the new iron. Had 2 different ones in my sights during the summer but could not get the sellers to respond. People are strange- I would have thought the reason you posted it on CL was to sell it. /shrug

They don't respond then if they do sell it they leave the ad on so you can take time to ask any it only for them to respond "sold"
