You might like to update my testimonial statement under Troy's Bar-B-Que Smoker.
I have now used this unit for about 5 years. I have cooked
Briskets, Pork Loin, Chicken, Ribs, and Whole Hog(Small). On my flat
unit I have cooked several hundred steaks. I always start with 20
pounds of charcoal, which I start with gas. After the charcoal is
white, I spread it and start adding my wood. I use Mesquite for
Briskets, unless I am cooking for an older crowd. Older people seem to
like the Mesquite, Oak mixture. Lighter meats get Hickory, Oak or a mixture.
I have now cooked over 800 briskets and many pounds of the other meats.
As of yet, I have not had a single piece of meat that was not excellent.
If I was not retired and like doing nothing sometimes, I could be
cooking every day. I cook mostly for Church, Charities and friends. I
can sale as much as I like and do so at near my cost.
Enclosed are pictures of what I did with the 4 foot unit I purchased a few months back. I have cooked large numbers of briskets with great success. I love cooking on the unit.
