BBQ Banter, Bragging, and Backyard Cooks / Re: 1/2" firebox
« Last post by CB83 on October 20, 2017, 07:52:25 PM »
I have been thinking of going with a 1/2 inch firebox as well. I wouldn't want any rivets put in it for the stainless gator. I would have to go with the three amigo's since i believe there welded. The reason i have been thinking about it, if it rains while i am cooking if it would hold the temp? If so how much would it drop compare to the 1/4 inch firebox?

Don't quote me on the exact numbers....but my 1/2" thick square firebox, attached to my 2448 with an upright went from about 250 down to about 200 degrees during a decent rain storm that came through Houston.....same rainstorm on my cheapo pit out back would've dropped it by easily over 100 degrees. I think through hat 1/2" box is worth every penny.....a few other things that help is through hate always make sure your wood is dry ( I like to preheat mine on the firebox....but thats just me) and throughhatohats other thing is  that if you know the rain is coming, don't be afraid to throw an extra log or two in the box and let the temp rise.....that way as the rain cools it off you won't drop as much  T-up

Any experience on what size split logs to use in a 20 inch square firebox with gas assist? Main chamber is 20 X 40 with upright.

Waiting Room / Re: North Jersey waiting anxiously

I can honestly say being on a waiting list does give you time to think about what you really want. Yes the upgrades cost but this is a one time deal, the pit will last you a lifetime. I just wish i had more life left!  {yes]%3
