New member from lufkin Texas

Postby Mattm » Thu Feb 22, 2018 2:05 pm

Good afternoon everybody. I have noticed alot of good info on this forum already. I'm love cooking a the pit Iam located in lufkin Texas. I built my first home pit in 2011 now I am wanting one that I can move around and cook large amounts. I'm in the process of building a large trailer pit, would like to get into fundraisers and competition bbq. I had a few questions for some experienced builders? Also does this forum have an app I can download to my phone. Thank you.

I appreciate it, thank you. I'll take some pics this evening and post them on here. Have you ever done any custom builds? I was wondering if that feldons bbq calculator was accurate?

The small one was built as a regular smoker then I converted it to a reverse flow with a water pan. Works great just not big enuff for what I want to do. I paid 75 bucks for the 250 gallon tank and got the boat trailer for free made out of 4 inch channel. I want it to have a charcoal grill, three gas burners, would box with fold out table attached to lid, sink, storage compartment and water tank, oven box mounted on top of fire box, and a steel covering over entire thing with fold out steel canopy on each side.
