Hello All:


Been on the Forum for a couple of weeks now and thought I would jot something down in this here section.  About twenty years ago I built myself an old wood plywood smoker.  I would use it used it for an annual batch of smoked salmon.  Well the old wooden one was starting to fall apart so I figured I would build one that would last.  So, decided to build an insulated metal smoker and try and smoke some other meats and treats.  


So, with the help of this forum, got a few of the bugs worked out and I'm quite please with my work.  The unit turned out to be quite a monster as I wanted to be able to do big batches of salmon.  So, it's got seven oven racks 16 X 23 inches, plenty of square footage.  (I'll have to rotate the racks regularly in order get even smoking)  It started out with hotplates but, I didn't think it was getting hot enough, so I tried the Brinkmann Electric Converter and a PID controller.  THAT PID IS AMAZING!!  Stainless steel inside lining with aluminum exterior.






An here is the first butts...  15 hours and turned out beautiful.





Anyways, I am very please with how it turned out, there will be plenty more meat passing over these racks.  Turkey breasts, pork tenderloins, butts, brisket might even try my hand at sausage, and those fatties look real interesting.  


Thanks everyone for all the help, great bunch of folks here, I'm sure I'll be pickin' some more brains here sooner or later...




PS - I just had to throw this in here - this is my other smoker!!devil.gif

Wow, that's an awesome smoker you built!  You've got some skills, my friend!  And I'm also loving your "other smoker".  Is it a true Cobra, or is it one of the replica kits?  Either way, its beautiful!!

Thank you very much Red, the Cobra is a Factory Five kit. Built that too.

Replicas are more fun, you can drive the piss out of it and not worry too much about it.
