China, really?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

Yep that's me, I am an expat living in and have been smoking now for a couple months.  One of the local bars had a big cast iron smoker they used to do weekend bbq's on.  I asked the manager to hook me up with a factory and shortly after was the proud owner of a brand new smoker.  Not sure what the correct name of this type is, but it has a fire box on the right, a large main grill and then a chimney with 4 shelves for additional cooking space.


I have primarily been smoking pork cuts, as that is what is really good and really available here, but I have a source for good brisket, so maybe when I get a little better at it, I will start working on my beef skills.  Anyway, found this forum on line as I try to perfect my recipes and will be following all of you as regularly as possible.

Let me see if I can figure out how to attach a picture....480

There she is.  Most of you probably don't get to smoke on the 11th floor of a high rise.  Gas grill on the right to complete the "Man Kitchen."

It came in two big crates and for 15 bucks I got them to deliver it to the balcony.  About an hour of assembly time and I was ready to season it.  All in all, not too bad at all.  Getting it down in the future, whole other story...

I basically got it factory direct, so just under 400 USD including the cost to deliver it from the factory.  Not sure what this would go for in the states, but it is good quality metal and built very well..
