Hello fellow stick burners, I been putting some serious time into learning the trade for the last 4-5 years . I own 4 smokers (H20- 1 Barrel, 2 offset), the one in pic is my latest score from CL. I have done 4 smokes on her so far(6-raks ribs/2 shoulders and a belly/5 salmon,), the guy I stole it off of used it for grilling only so its like new after I took a wire grinder to smoke chamber and seasoned her, same fire box as a NBBD And bottom of smoke chamber is 1/2 drum Welded, top lids seem to be stamped 3/16 w/some welds to Finnish trim . I am happy with performance after adding basket and tuning plate,holds very steady temps now, still leaks bad as I having hard time finding local sealing materials(on line i guess) Thank you all for great input to make this forum work for us "back yard burners" . CHEERS Jay P.S. Anyone seen this model before? It is a NB never seen this model, sturdy /welded /heavy but with stamped lids.
