That was pretty funny JIRodriguez !
This coming weekend is a long weekend and the weather is supposed to be beautiful.
I'm working as fast as I can to try and get my first smoke going ASAP.
Almost ready for fire!
Here is the firewall and lazy suzan support.
18 gauge sheets with 1" wool refractory insulation in between.
Firewall in place inside the smoker.
Drip pan anyone ?
Drip pan in position, sitting on the lazy suport and firewall.

Drip pan on firewall inside smoker.
Firebox damper with removable pipe burner.
When not using the pipe burner. I simply unscrew it from the damper. Too easy !
Damper installed on the firedoor. Push in to seal the firebox. Pull out to adjust the draft.

Probably one of the best set ups I've seen ...
I'm a welder , so I know those lil welds are tedious and time consuming , and aggravating . But you are breezing through them , congrats !
Even more pictures !
Temperature at meat level reached 175 degrees in about 10 minutes and stayed there.
I think I might have to drill more air holes for the venturi, turning up the gas gives me a yellow flame. I'll have to tweek that a bit.
Lazy suzan sitting in the drip pan. I have a nice stainless steel bearing I purchased to support the lazy susan, details later once I install it.
Right now I just want to put this baby together and start a FIRE.
Closing 'er up.
Hey, wait a minute. where did that gap come from ? I added a 1/2 inch lip all around, there shouldn't be a gap ???
Some adjustments required obviously. And I thought it would be perfect off the bat. Bummer !
That's it for now.
I'm heading back out to light a fire in this thing and bake out any residue on the stainless.
I'm thinking there might be some meat in there in a day or two !!!
Temperature testing. Might as well throw something on while I'm at it.
First attempt at a Fatty. Looks pretty lonely in there...
Temperature control is AWESOME ! 225-230 degrees with two sticks in the firebox. Added about 1 stick every 3/4 hour.
Rock steady temperature.
So, my test was successful let's offer the guys at work a little snack.
Here's the smoker with 18 full racks and 100 ABT's.
After 4 hours...
Hey of course that will be part of the "features", just not there ...
