  1. Ha yeah, steep and expensive. I've been having to split logs and do as you say. It's labour intensive to say the least. I really want to be able to build a fire that doesn't need such high maintenance. Got on the list for a Franklins pit so I am frantically saving and just waiting for the call.

Only prob with the stove tape is that is dusts up.. not what you want in your food. I've put myself on the list for a Frankilns BBQ pit.... The landmann is shite really and for the money other available smoke
