    I aquired a large smoker from the person who previously lived in the house that I just purchased. It needs a little cleaning but I was able to fire it up with propane and it works well.

    I am going to post some pics when I get a chance. I hope to use this site as a resource and learn to make some good food. Hopefully, this will become another hobby for me other than my Chevelle.

    Here are a couple of pics










    There is a blower motor that goes into the rectangle slot area on the right side. I blower is adjustable -- so I can limit the amount of air being blown into the smoker.

    And the chevelle...

    For the chevelle: I just spent 17K last year putting in a new (383 Stroker) engine, new automatic transmission, rear-end, suspension, original SS wheels, exhaust, gas tank, ect...

    It is still being worked on and I will get pics when I get it back!
     
  16. Wow, that thing is great! Good luck with the smoke.

    I just got in from cleaning and firing it up. It takes propane and there are two burners in the bottom of the smaller round thing. I don't know the lingo of smokers yet. The electric fan attachment works well also.

    I turned on both burners full blast and the heat nearly got to 500 degrees. I am going to have to buy a new Brickmann thermometer as the current one is cracked and has moisture in it.

    Gonna have more questions as to where to put the plates of wood when I decide to smoke. Do I put them directly over the flame or in the area above the flame?

    I also assume that I could take out the grates in the main area and use charcoal? What is the appropriate name or type of smoker that this is?
