Southern Pride Problems

I am currently running a Southern Pride SRG 400 and just wondered if anybody had come across any bumps in the road with these? I would love to know however big or small a problem you may have had with them......just curious is all......

Never heard of them before, then noticed they are commercial cookers. Nice price tag as well. :shock:

Do I gather by that response you are not a fan of commercial smokers?

I think the problem is that most just haven't cooked with commercial cookers. I personally wouldn't know where to start. :dont:

I'm curious about the SRG 400. How is it performing? What are you cooking in it? How well does a type 1 hood ventilation system handle the smoke output? What is your maintenance/cleaning schedule like and how often/long do you run it?

Thanks!

JM2C I think they make bad BBQ no smoke flavor :puke: every place I ever ate that has one the meat tasted like roasted in an oven. I won't eat BBQ at a joint that uses one. Oyler On the other hand makes a great pit.

BD commercial pits are like any other it's the cook not the cooker.
I owned a Old Hickory and I could have used the gas option to cook the entire batch or just use it to start the wood. Another member of the forum has that pit now and is using it to much acclaim.
You like Oylers because they don't offer the option gas it.

You bet I do,Real men cook with Wood PT :laughing7: I know that the problem is most joints cook over night and use gas sure they might toss in a split or 2 in the beginning if they remember and if not the Sign says BBQ so they will come anyway aint that what sauce is for?!? :violent: There is a Well know Establishment in Waco where the Baylor Teddy Bears hang famous for the GUT PACK that has 3 of them things no wood except in the building's walls, and they call it BBQ :puke:
