Finally upgraded my offset.

Postby texasbred » Tue May 15, 2018 9:27 pm

I've been tied up with work for a while but I had a few weeks at home and finally made the decision to upgrade my smoker. I bought a Klose 20x42. This thing is a dream compared to my old New Braunfels pit. David was great to deal with and a great guy to have a conversation with. I bought it last Thursday and David delivered it Friday morning. Seasoned it Friday and loaded it up Saturday because we had family visiting, of course I had to cook on it Sunday too. This is by far the best pit I've owned and cooked on, easy to cook 225-250, fairly even side to side without tuning plates. To me this was the best bang for the buck, the standard features on David's pits drive up the cost with others.

Saturday I cooked 3 racks pork spare ribs, 2 racks beef ribs, 1 picnic pork shoulder, 1 chuck roast, 8 chicken thighs in a pan and 1 butter and garlic onion. I know that isn't much compared to what a lot of guys cook on their offsets but I've never been able to smoke that much at one time.
Sunday was 4 chicken thighs, 2 racks bone in beef ribs, 1 butter and garlic onion and 2 pans of marinated boneless beef ribs in pans. I also grilled fajitas on the firebox grate.

Excuse the flower beds, all that is fixing to be changed.

You can't see it in this pic but the chicken pans and onion are more towards the firebox.

You made a great choice. Of course I am kind of biased as i cook on a Klose as well. But he builds great BBQ Pits. Keep paint on it and it will last forever.

Thanks everybody, it's a dream to cook on compared to what I had. I'll have it loaded down again next weekend with brisket, spares, chicken and some big smoked burgers.
