Second BBQ on the new 120 tank...

  1. This is my first attempt at posting PICS so if this turns out to be a crash and burn, I’ll try to get it right on the next attempt.

    This was some shots from my second BBQ on my home built 120 gallon BBQ. The first BBQ was a success (food wise) but I stayed occupied adjusting the air intake on the firebox. I had a bow on one end of the door (1/4”) and the wind was causing a 50 degree fluctuation. I learned the hard way that a good seal is critical.

    Well before starting the second BBQ, I took a steel cable come along and synched the bowed firebox door down and hit it with my cutting torch. It got cherry red and after a cool down it kept its shape and the bow was gone.

    Started a Hickory fire and threw a log in every so often and was able to keep a 225 degree temp throughout the smoke.

    The baby backs were purchased from SAMS and I gave them a good rub with the mix I put together.

    After the BBQ was hot, I threw them on and let them do there thing.

    Just feed the firebox every so often and things were smooth. I didn’t have to mess with the air intake after the initial adjustment. Happiness is an auto pilot 225 degree heat.

    The ribs were ready after 4 hours so they were wrapped for about an hour and turned out very nice.

    Called a friend to come over and pick up a rack and he showed up in his Bucket. He had a spot in his covered bed area for some ribs wrapped in some foil and a towel.

    Tried to trade the Toyota for the Bucket but he wouldn’t have anything to do with that???

    Anyway, all turned out well and I hope you enjoy the post. Thanks again for all the good words and encouragement.

    Great job all the way around! I like how the smoker has itself set in the ground, ready to go for many smokes.
    Also the Bucket is a sweet ride. It is one of my favorite cars to look at and of course drool on...[​IMG]

    looks like a dream to drive..........the bucket ain't to bad 'neither!
  14. Thanks again to all for the positive feedback. I passed the bucket compliments on to my buddy. He has been building vehicles for more years than we care to remember but still enjoys the feedback.

    Thanks again…..
