The Firebox, Grills, Griddles / Fire management
« Last post by El Toro on December 09, 2018, 10:09:15 PM »
Smoked some butts today and after my wood ignited I would shut the firebox door and Id end up with dirty smoke. I waited for about 15-20 minutes and nothing changed, I had to go stoke the fire. I wonder if it was the wood, it would ignite but it would smolder a few minutes after shutting the door. Now I was using a cyberq with 2 fans on my big offset, and I made sure the fans were pushing out air. As soon as I opened the door, the logs would ignite. Any suggestions?

I just watched part 1 of your video about backyard cooking.  You finished up by starting a fire.  How do I find part 2 on your website?

Pit Tuning and Tuning Plates / Tuning plates - clean up

Has anyone lined their tuning plates with foil for easier clean up? Wondering if it would impact the functionality of any part of the pit. Thank you! :)

Gator Pit's next BBQ Class is scheduled for 10/13/18.  One full Saturday from 8AM to 5PM.  With the upcoming holidays, we will be doing some special meats, in addition to our usual instruction.  We plan to add in to our class:  Smoke a turkey, fry a turkey, and smoked beef ribs.  Just a little something different added to our regular:  Brisket, chicken, pork ribs, pulled pork, beans, mac and cheese, apple and peach pies, salsa, and more.  All of this is prepped in front of our students, cooked in front of our students, and students get to taste everything our Pitmasters cook thru out the day.  No other class offers this. 

Go to to register today.  Class is limited and we already have 5 pre-registered, as of today.  This class is expected to sell out quickly.  Have questions or need assistance, contact Ritch or Angie at 713-896-0144 or  #gatorpitbbqschool #gatorpit #texasbbq #texas #bbqclass #brisket #ribs #chicken #pork

Well turns out the good news was prematurely brought to my attention, as I made a follow up call to check the status 3 weeks later and they still have NOT begun working on the pit.... after 1 year 7 months and many thousands of dollars later I am getting rather discouraged. :(
