Hey guys, new to the forum here. Tons of great photos and information on here. Thanks for posting it, have learned a lot.
I am kind of a hobbist and love to cook.
Been making homemade wine about 7 years now and beer about 2.
Smoking meat about 2 years
Location: South Texas
Smoker: New Braunfuels Bandera smoker
Just refurbished my smoker, bought it on Craigslist for $50 :) but needed some work. Racks in the firebox were rusted out and broken. I welded some angle iron in the firebox to replace them and added a gas burner. Bottom rack and wheels were also beyond repair. New bottom frame was fabricated and wheels added. Stripped all the rust off of it and sprayed three heavy coats of Rust Oleum Bar B que paint on with a paint gun. It's better than new now!
Still playing with the gas burner, not sure if I like it or not.
I will add some pictures of it soon.
