    Got a call yesterday morning. It was Smokey Joe Pearce saying he was on his way to deliver my new "baby".

    He showed up about noon thirty pulling a trailer with a winch truck. On the trailer was a massive 1500# big beautiful dull black brand spankin new smoker, and it was mine, all mine.

    We dropped the trailer, picked up the smoker with the winch, and headed to the backyard. After trying a few different ways to offload it onto the deck, we decided to have my neighbor Rusty Steele (really) bring his tractor over and lift it up with the loader bucket. After a bit, it was set in place.

    Next task was to burn it in. 4 good sized logs, a weed torch,and 45 minutes later, 450*-500* and a bunch of beef suet, and the seasoning began.

    Here's some pix for those of you that ould like to see her.


    In this last pic, if you look toward the top left, you can see the gap where the heat comes into the oven from the firebox. The top feed heat travels across the top of the unit, then starts a vortex against the end wall, and exits thru the stack which sits at grate level.

    When I checked it out, the temp was about 10* higher on the left right up against the firebox wall. Everything else was within about 5*.

    With a steamtable pan full of water in the bottom of the upright oven, the temp stayed between 225* and 240* no matter what was going on in the firebox or the big oven.

    I think I'm gonna love this big black ash maker!

    Have you copyrighted that word, or may I borrow it from time to time?

    No worry about the fire dept., we only use Thin Blue Smoke, it matches the sky. We (as only an inner circle knows) also use Invisible Blue Smoke, and it's even tougher to spot.

    Tim that is an awesome addition to the family. I hope to be able to make the christening ceremony. Looks like she'll put on a spectacular show for those who make it.
