I agree with Limey - the results depend more on the cook than the pit - if you know what you're doing any of them can be used to win. $99 barrel to $10k off-set.

We recently parked our offset and are cooking on two drums and a WSM Thom. The popularity in drums is becoming more and more evident on the competition circuit.

Get yourself a pit you can get familiar with, holds temp while cooking and easy to maintain while cooking. I have used this one for years and like it a lot. I have just ordered 2 more brand new pits because they will hold more food.

They move it each year, was in Waxahachie this past Fall. Check the IBCA site for the latest news.

Looks like it was post-poned from this year to 2021
