Hi buckshot500

I had one mavriick that showed the pit temp and the temp for one of the meats the other was normal wireless meat probes. Now i use a temp kontroller that  i have connetcted to my home network it also have a fan to it like a guru (still jusing the maverick thats a good temp checker). There is also an output for a fan havent tried it with a fan yet. My long smoke have i done in daytime.

I am planning to sell it and buy a guru or stoker. Still reading about those to see witch is the best they both have ups and downs.

The best collection of smokers I've ever seen!  You've got some real talent.  How did you control the temperature in your offset smokers?  I used to use a Brinkman and added a series of removal steel plates with slots cut in the sides.  Allowing the heat and smoke to flow under the plates allowed me to get a 25°F or less temperature differential between the offset wood burner and the other end of the smoker.  The slots varied in size with the smallest near the fire box and the largest near the stove pipe.  I have sense shifted to a MBS 40 and enjoy it.  Much less labor than the offset smoker.  I'll be interested in more pictures from you as you continou and prefect your design.

Thanks Pleasantp.


In the small offset  have a damper on the chimney and a deflector sheet on the inlet so i dont get heat direct at the end where the fire is.

On the bigger offset i have 5 removal sheets that i can move to get the heat where i want it and i put them together when i use it as a reverseflow smoker.

You're on the right track. I used the removable metal plates to good advantage. I also put a deflector at the entrance of the heat into the smoking area from the firebox. Then, using flexible metal tubing, I extended the smokestack so that it picked up smoke near the bottom of the smoking chamber. I'm sorry I sold this Brinkman Because it worked so well. I sold it to a professional chef who wanted to learn barbecuing. He was very pleased with the way it works. I'll look forward to your next post.
