Hi guys.

So I want to get one thing straight. I am sick of having 4 bbqs in my backyard. Rustic Soul is about to take on a project and we need all of the help you can offer.

our idea has always to create the ultimate bbq. I want to create something half affordable that will last 2 lifetimes and does everything. I m thinking you can rotisserie a whole hog, smoke ribs and sear like a legend.

They don't all have to be done at once but the bbq needs to do the lot.

Shoot us some pics. Any ideas just anything at all. I'll try put it all together and spit something out we can all share.

I have a few people interested in something like this so I would like to get moving on it.

the ease of use with a weber, plus the fuel efficency and heat/mositure retention of a kamado, and the 'cooking' space of and offset, also the ease of temp control/wifi plot graphing of a pellet cooker!

Combine those 4 and your onto a winner. :D

Keeping it reasonably mobile would also be nice.

Pellet cooker would be good but forgot to mention im going for a coal or stick burner only.

Had though of a vertical but didnt come up with much for it.

As someone just starting out what I've been trying to find is an offset that is:

  • 'Cheap' (~$500)
  • Has a diffusion plate
  • Front shelf for moving meat in & out (sides are less important to me)
  • Decent insulation

Size isn't that important, just enough for some ribs and a small (3kg) brisket. My current cheap offset is absolute garbage, which has pushed me toward an electric or gas smoker (not going to do pellets). Having to spend all day fart arsing around with the firebox really isn't conducive to an enjoyable smoke.

Vertical feed insulated cabinet here. No power or moving parts. Super economical and can run a stoker for overnights. Probably a Stumps XL baby for home and Stumpster for camping. CS

I've commissioned Rob from Radar Hill to build me a pig cooker. Giant vertical type design. Big single grill for food. It'll be almost 6ft x 4ft so it'll fit a good 130kg hog splayed out. clam shell lid. Heat deflector plate which acts as a drip tray for when you're doing whole hog. Triple drawer charcoal / wood trays down below with air intake built in. All in all should weigh up at about 400kg, so still (kind of) mobile on wheels.

Can cook direct over charcoal with the diffuser plate out. Can cook indirect style with charcoal or all wood. Drips from a whole hog get channeled away from the heat source. 6x4ft cooking grill. Seems pretty "all rounder" to me.
