    hey, im new to the site and new to smokin, so, due to the lack of good bbq here in southern nh i decided to try it myself, first the smoker, i didn't have one, after reading all the modifications done to the cheap ones at the hardware store i decided to build it myself. besides cooking i also love building. so i took the idea of the trashcan smoker and redesigned my own. i didn't like the hot plate idea, seen too much electrical failure as a former mechanic. i just didn't feel right with propane, so i worked with lump heating a wood chip box with a liquid bowl over that. i fired it up yesterday, to my surprise it hit 300 in no time, i knew that was too for smokin but i wanted to season it and see what it could do. my first real attempt is gona be this weekend, ive got some babybacks and turkey legs. wish me luck.
