First cook on the Fat Girl------Whoa

Postby cokeguy101 » Tue Feb 25, 2014 11:35 am

This past sunday I fired up the R&O Fat Girl for her first cook. What an amazing pit. There is a learning curve for me as I have never cooked on anything insulated or a vertical smoker. There were a few challenges getting it up to where I wanted, but that was all me, I did not start with a big enough base set of lump/charcoal other than that it cooked flawlessly. I cannot wait to get the timing down a little and just get more comfortable.

Sweet..... I see the Fatgirl now has balls - as in ball valves for temp control. I like that a lot.

Edit: Oops - that's the drain valve. I forgot because mine's hidden by the shelf. :oops:



Mine has the original sliders and they work fine but can be a little fussy to adjust. I was going to modify mine but finally got the sticky damper to slide when things heat up.

Would love to compare notes sometime - drop me a P/M if you have any questions or comments. Here's mine......

Nice smoker. The trailer you're hauling it around with ain't too bad either.

Great looking smoker and hauler. Nice place to relax while enjoying the comfort of not having to toss a stick on every hour.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah the motorhome sure has been nice even though we have not used it at a cook off yet. Planned one this weekend but Uncle Sam is taking a little too much dinero out of my pocket, water heater needs a refurb and the darn garage door spring all broke in 1 week.

Hoping to revamp the cart a little with some all terrain wheels this weekend and cook cops for kids on the 21st. Not expecting any calls just a good time and a little relaxing. It will be nice to have it out at Nascar and on camping trips as well.
