My 1st thought, based solely on the title of this thread was that you got remarried. Boy was I wrong there.

Congratulations to your young one on her graduation.

How well did it hold temperature? Do you have to constantly stay on top of it?

Once I figured out how much lump charcoal it needed, it held them really good. Next time will use some actual wood instead of the chunks.

Very pleased with the cave man cooker. Going to cook more chicken this weekend along with ribs. Canít wait to try a brisket. Iíve seen people who have used Dutch oven in it to do biscuits and cobblers too. Itís more than just a smoker. Yíall check them out Amor Outdoors.

Very nice! And made in my hometown of Wills Point, I had no idea. I’m in the market for a big stainless sink for my garage and they make those also. I may be giving them a visit.

I’m very interested in buying one, but I can’t find much information on it.
Have you done a cook with all wood yet? If so, how does the smoke flavor compare to an offset?
What are the dimensions?
How does it hold temp?
Any idea on the temperature differential between the shelves?

1.Have not used all wood, I use lump charcoal and wood chunks or wood. 2.Holds temps very well. Donít have to run as hot as you think
3. From top shelf to bottom shelf is about 30 degrees.

Shoot me a text 903-368-4110 and I can help with anything or put you in contact with the right person. They are running a buy now pay later special and you can also get 20% off between now and July 4th. Working on getting dimensions now.

Just now saw this post, sorry it took so long.

I pulled the trigger on a caveman cooker today. Great deal at 20% off. Super cool engineering w no welds. I also bought a stainless sink for my garage from their scratch and dent pile. Sambo can give you the contact info if you are interested. It will be a while before I can fire mine up and I plan on painting mine black w stove paint. Thanks Sambo for the heads up!
