    kept reading here bout freezing smoke meat,so here we go.

    pull pork, brisket, to start with. breakfast fattie

    (think there a law that you can't fire up the smoker without putting a fattie in it)

    also built me a charcoal box . Which is working too good , 3 hour into smoke and

    temp is staying around 300 !!!! intake vent has been close the whole time . will need

    to do some mods to close up air leak in the firebox . so enough talk here some Q-view

    that I have so far>

    new play toy

    today's line up: going to smoke the "smoke sausage" to go along with the breakfast fattie.

    and for lunch smoking some stuff brats wrap in bacon.       Eating good today!!! [​IMG]

    firebox  at 5:30 this morning. finally got my temp down where I want it after 3 1/2 hour

    will work on making the fire box air tight before next smoke. still have the intake close.

    before using the charcoal box i could easily keep the temp at 240 the whole time.
