This test was the best and had the most consistent temp the whole way trough the cook at 260 degrees for 12 hours .

I tried this method on my 48 this weekend and got well over 12 hour burn time with a steady 250 degrees using a BBQ Guru. I am back in love with my grill/smoker again.
I really like this snake method better than your other snake try. reason why is when the charcoal makes it all the way back to the door you could easily add a bag to keep it rolling. would require very little attention. Great video!
Hey there BBQ Freak , I got my Assassin ! I’m gonna season it today , Did you season the water pan in the grill or just rub it down ? I have read some stuff that if you leave the pan empty it will warp . Thanks for your input .
Love your vids. I have the 48. I’m curious what you used to make the metal tube. I couldn’t find anything at homedepot. Any help would be well appreciated.?
Nice Vid. How does the smoke profile on this compare to your Shirley Fab offset?
Will this work without a fan?
Hey brother I just ordered one of these as my primary cooker for a catering business it will be used as a smoker 100% of the time for temps 250-270 is this an ideal cooker for that?? Also should I move smoke stack to the right or leave in the center
Thanks for sharing. I have a question about your Shirley Fabrications smoker. How long of a burn time can you get from it?
Wow great videos , you should be getting freebies from Assassin and BBQ Guru cause you sold me !! I ordered my Assassin a week ago and cant wait. I would love to have a vertical feed but they are up there in price so I am hoping like you said that this will work well as a set and forget smoker. The cook you did in the ice and snow was super impressive. Have you put multiple butts or briskets ? I was just wandering how it did with a good size load on the smoker. Keep up the vids there great !!
Thanks of posting this. Awesome tests and great info on the Assassin. I’ve seen people do a maze like this with a Hasty Bake but I think they used fire bricks instead of metal as a divider. Would like to own one someday.
I have a 48, too, and have tried different snake methods. This one looks great.
I notice you are using the V-pan. Do you smoke over the closed side or the slotted side?
Do you ever use the water pan?
Very nice video, Thanks for sharing your great methods!
How long is your square tubing divider? My assassin smoker grill is on the way & I want to try this method. Thanks
Have you cooked around 325 just wondering what your burn time would be. Also how much charcoal was in your maze?
