  1. Alright guys I have been reading from this website for five years! I am a rookie smoker. But have plenty of friends who do catering, own a business, and do competitions. Here where I live BBQ is king.

    Finally joined because I will be building my own smoker out of a large air compressor. No experience, no tools, no trade. This will be a challenge but I enjoy Q-ing so much and reading all of you guys builds that now I will embark in my own. Looking to do a horizontal stick burner, maybe a reverse smoker.

    My first smoker was a craiglist purchase. Custom center fire. Love it but I prefer horizontal over anything.

  2. Hello and welcome to the forum, Great place to learn and share and a bunch of good people. Looking forward to your build. Interesting smoker you got on Craigslist  did it work well ?

  3. Started to clean up my tank a little today.
    The craiglist smoker had a fire box behind it. It did well for chicken but didn't do so good for slow smokes. That is why I prefer horizontal method.

    Will post pics...
