Adding Baffles to Offset Smoker

Discussion in 'Side Fire Box' started by jeromeking, Jun 16, 2014.

  1. I have a cheap offset, and want to make some baffles. Im not a great metal worker, but was thinking to use lead, as it is maluable and I can just form it. Is the lead dangerous to have in near the food, cold or heated??? Wanted to check before i kill myself. Thanks all.

    Simple answer:  Look up "lead poisoning" and you'll get lots of information.  Bottom line: lead and food don't mix!!!!!
