Do you guys name your smokers? Just curious. If so, what sort of names do you have for them?
Drum smoker be Trident 1 (cause it sorta looks like one), the fridge smoker I named Used ta be Cool (cause it did). Sorta what ever feels right ta ya at the time I guess.
That be used ta be cool before the boy ran over it with his truck, long story. Still workin on fixin it.
i need to! lol.
My GOSM is called Susie - Q, here's an old pic before she took up permanent residence along my fence.
My smoker is named LaLa - short for "Laurel's Lang"
I melded a New Braunfels upright with an unknown brand SFB, which gives me a lot of flexibility for smoking at different temps and 1500 square inches of smoking surface. We call her "Grillestate."
My UDS is the "Burnt Coyote"
The only time I give my smokers, names is if they break on me. All names then mostly contain 4 letters unless I take them to 2 syllables. When my "like new factory Refurbished" Louisiana Whole Hog cooker arrived in extremely used condition with the left fire pot not working at all... I think I gave it 4 or 5 names all were 2 syllables. When Danson shipped me a huge box of parts to replace everything and in the box were parts for 3 different cookers non of which were mine... I gave it several more names. I gave it a few more names when I had to carry the 400 lbs. cooker through my house and down 2 flights of stairs to send it back! I think I even called it a few more as I was pushing the 400 lbs. beast out to the FedEx truck.
Sounds like you had quite a run of bad luck there, I hope its all better now. What did the shipping cost for 400 lbs with fed-x ?
BTW. My smokers have no names yet, like Wingman says, at least no names that are permanent or suitable while children are around.
I served on a submarine, and I was thinking, because smokers resemble the big steel tubes that I spent months underwater in, that it would be fitting to find a submarine related name for the new Lang.
Our mascot was a fighting turtle named Frumpy, and that might make a good name. We'll see.
I call it "The General" Since you are a Navy guy, maybe "Skipper", Admiral, or Captain??
Tom37, Danson's ate the return shipping costs. I have no idea what that was. The owner of All Things BBQ (the dealer) was pissed at them and he is building me a custom whole hog Pellet cooker of the same size but using 1/4" steel as he does in his Yoder builds. I might have to name this one some thing sweet when it gets here. Or not
Now the "General;" above looks cool. I like BIG FAT pipes! The name suites it.
Mine is simply WALLE cuz the wife and kids have a cruel sense of humor and when I was building her they thought it looked the Pixar's W.A.L.L.E. (Waste Allocation Load Lifter - Earth class).
Or in Wife.... More of my BBQ @#$% !
Ain't she purdy!
These are great! Keep 'em coming!
Introducing "The Smoke Wagon"
The Smoke Wagon is one clean looking machine. My compliments.
"Skin that Smoke Wagon and we'll see what happens!" Wyatt Earp in Tombstone.
Is the Smokewagon a Lang?
I call mine Buford. let's see how many people get it.
