Hi Y'all. this is Johnnie from the Triad of North Carolina. I have used about every type of smoker design for about 15 years now. I believe everything can be made better by slow smoking. It is the only way to cook. I have in the past year started to design smokers to get what I want out of a smoker. my current design incorporates steam and pressure cooking possibilities. I have started to build the first prototype and will put up some photos when it is done. Also let me know what would you like to see in a smoker, and what gives you difficulties or just inconvenience. I can build those into the new design.
