Question not directed to me, but I can give my opinion about the pit boss. I have the almost same model. Love it. Sold my stick burner because I will never use it again.
Also buy a smoke tube from amazon. Great accessory. Can even smoke cheese with you pit and the smoke tube. Best of luck
I also tried a chuck roast on the smoker. I was disappointed. I got the idea from others on a fourm. Thought it was a great idea. Smaller cut for less leftovers. From now on, all chuck roasts will be done in a pressure cooker or crockpot. Was too tough.
I was able to strong arm maytronix last time I sent mine in. Second time in the first year. They sent me a prepaid shipping label.
Not fun to pay so much and have to contribute to the warranty repair process.
I just read through this build for the first time. Very nice finished product. Also wanted to compliment your truck in the background. Love those k5 trucks!
Well, it will not let me post your picture from post #95
