    Thanks for sharing this information. I'm in the market for another cooker and have just about settled on this one. I almost pulled the trigger on a PCB because it's so much less money but realized that I'll ultimately end up with a stick buner and believe this one is ideal.

    T-ROY any regrets going with the 3/16” cooking chamber over the 1/4” models ?

  • david gibson
    david gibson 9 months ago

    the instructions i got were to spray the outside of the firebox with a 50/50 water/cooking oil every time you use it - do you do that too?

      T-ROY COOKS  9 months ago

      I do try to spray it down with that mixture each time, but sometimes I forget. LOL

    @T-ROY COOKS I am in the CC areas as well looking into the Lone Star Grillz. Would you recommend the 48x24 or would the 42x20 be just as good, asking because good price difference. I know the cooking areas is larger obviously, but just for back yard BBQ I am torn between those two. Thanks

    Hey T-Roy. Just curious how you're liking this cooker. I'm getting a little more serious about getting an off-set, and just wondering how you like this vs. the Yoder.

    What is your opinion of the Yoder heat management plate, now that you have the LSG?

  • Christopher Van Brackle

    Beautiful pit T-Roy. Beentrying to decide between LSG and Gatorpit. LSG seems to give you more on their entry level models.

    • Tonio Yendis

    T-Roy That looks like one AWESOME smoker!!! I just emailed the company asking about shipping to Ohio. I put in a word for your video!!! Any options you wish you would have gotten with it?


    Just curious if u notice the difference in taste between wood with bark and without bark my selection is small tho I got some English white oak rounds and they go ok but bitter if I leave bark on also I noticed you guys put wood under the charcoal and ur meat don’t get the black tinge on it I will try that as I normally put wood on top as u have in this video (only seasoning pit though) and meat takes on a dark colour keep your videos coming mate love them

      CHOPPER ATTARD Year ago

      T-ROY COOKS yeah not a lot of ppl talk about that I’ve watched endless videos and have just found it out now
      Smoking meats has only just taken off here in Australia
      I’ve always bbq over dry sticks and twigs for that taste but actual smoking is new territory thanks for your videos brother

      T-ROY COOKS  Year ago +1

      Yes, that is also true and that is why you want that clean light blue smoke coming out of the stack.

      CHOPPER ATTARD Year ago

      T-ROY COOKS just learned via videos that not getting a clean burn also gives a bitter taste

      T-ROY COOKS  Year ago +1

      Bark will definitely make your food taste more bitter if you have too much bark. I prefer wood without the bark, but sometimes you just have to use what you can find locally. Keep that smoke rollin' brother!

  • Jennifer McMillan

    Glad you’re back! Cool cooker. Have to catch up on your vids now.

    Hi T-Roy. I am considering getting the 20x36 model. I wanted to get your opinion on how well the 3/16 thickness maintain heat. The other smoker I am considering is the Lang 20x36 patio original (1/4 chamber and firebox). I like the LSG design and features much more but concern I may be losing out on the 1/4”. Your thoughts and feedback is greatly appreciated. Love your videos!

  • rugger104
    rugger104 Year ago

    Troy, Awesome looking smoker-best of luck with it! I’m thinking about getting one of these. I love how fuel efficient this bad boy is and it seems like the bark and smoke ring it produces is unmatched in a backyard cooker as compared to say a Kamado, WSM, etc. When you’ve had it a little while, can you go over any other extras that they offer and which ones you think are the must haves? The base price is very reasonable but it can get up there with all the extras. Thanks.

    Hey there T-Roy, love your channel man. Next time your in the market for a new smoker, check out Allen's welding/woodworking on youtube. He's in Texas I believe (by Louisiana if i'm not mistaken), and makes some quality custom smokers. Keep on smoking brother!
