General FAQ

How economical are Ole Hickory Pits to operate?

Ole Hickory Pits are scientifically designed to be extremely energy efficient. They are enclosed and insulated to insure maximum use of the heat and smoke. The flue system allows only enough smoke and heat to escape to provide for combustion. Once the burner fires the wood to the desired cooking temperature, the thermostat shuts it off automatically, coming on only as needed to maintain the proper cooking temperature. The wood smolders continuously throughout the cooking process. You can cook hundreds of pounds of meat for a few dollars a day.
