    Thanks Smarkley! I did a ton of research on them and like anything else in the BBQ world debate swirls in an unending crap shoot. It alleviates hot spots mainly. There are pits similar that have "tuning plates" which are a series of plates that run underneath the main cooking chamber but they seemed a bit complicated to me and I didn't want to have to jack with my machine any more than I already do.

    Next up, let's get to work on that signature! To get help with that, check out Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel (if you haven't already) and read through the tips posts in that channel. There's also a post that explains the best way to post nice big pics here... we like to see bragging pictures of equipment and your cooks. We look forward to hearing more from you! Enjoy!


    What do you mean by signature? I'm confused as I have gone to my profile and cannot locate a "signature" option I have read the mods posts but nothing on signature. Perhaps it's the Texan in me and I'm missing it somehow? Please advise.

    The reason for all the questions is I am looking at "Stick Burners". I really like the setup on the "Compact Ultimate Patio" model.



    pThat's exactly my model! I had it custom made with a Double "T" and "Guns Up" across the stacks! After reading so many articles here, I visited Lang, Gator pits (here in Houston) and a few others! Ultimatley, I wanted a reverse flow pit because of the efficiency in cooking (I'm turning out briskets and pork shoulders in almost a 1/3rd less time at 225!) and elimination of hot spots! I met Chad who runs the business and he really knows his craft. His business is run out of a fabricated steel building on his property in Ennis Texas. This was a labour of love as I waited 3 1/2 months to have it built and then drove 4 hours up to Ennis to pick it up in my buddies truck. It is sealed perfectly. He will slightly season it for you before pickup with a little Pecan. You have to leave the intake door open fully for your fire to really get going which takes about 30 minutes as I don't have an accelerator for the smoke box. As far as stick burners go, You really can't go wrong with a reverse flow pit. "Irene" can hold 225 or whatever temp you need for about 3-4 hours before you need to add fuel and I mean it's pegged at the temp! It actually took me awhile to sto checking on it so much because I'm used to that on my old Brinkmann that leaked smoke and air like a siv. I chose Johnson because I wanted to support a small business, in TEXAS :-), and he specializes in the reverse flow tech. I think all of his pits except for the "T" design are built reverse flow.
