This has gone from an awsome smoker to a........... I can't think of any word good enough to describe it.
The storage drawers were a great addition.
What he said!
But it's such an awesome smoker !!!
Yes, a great craftsman is never satisfied with his work, and after seeing your work, I put you in that class!
I held another BBQ at work over Father's Day last week and did some tinkering with the stacks.
The result from closing them nearly all the way was a slower warm-up but plenty of smoke and WAY better gas mileage. (The oak splits were turning into charcoal before burning.)
I wish I'd gotten pics. It was a thing of beauty. :wipes tear:
I'm doing a whole hog this next week at Montana De Oro over in Obispo.
I couldn't find one under 60 lbs, sooo...
Yes, I'm aware that my firebox will now be undersized.
(If it really becomes an issue, I'll insulate the smoke chamber later to compensate.)
I love how your smoker is convertible........genius, pure genius how it can go from a 60" smoker to a 72" smoker in one weekend.
Hopefully you won't be asked to do 1/2 a beef the following weekend. That could get a little much....
Great thread and I applaud you for your ingenuity. Dave
