            Only when I toss them in the fire box! It's a classic off-set wood burning Jambo Pit, one of the first J-3 models. About 14 years old or so.

              It was built right alongside Tuffy’s first one. Tuffy told me at the Jack last year. Back when a Jambo was a Geer Pit!

              Please just make sure it's pre-burned, debarked, unprocessed wood.

              What do you want to see? Got this fancy basket for charcoal and wood that I put in the firebox this morning. It's pretty cool but very heavy. I confess, I haven't cooked on this cooker since April 2016, but I did take Johnny Trigg's class and this is what he uses.

              I had to go back to a video done at the Lubbock contest. Robert Sierra was interviewing Moe and they mentioned the manufacturer. There are so many Jambo knock offs out there...

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            the good one grill

            The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
