found my way here googling ideas for making smokers.


started smoking things about 20 years ago with a brinkmann charcoal. changed it to electric and used it until it wore out. got another and used it until it wore out. at the same time was using a weber kettle for grilling and smoking. Made an alton brown flower pot smoker a while back but kept my eye out for a 40's - 50's vintage fridge to make a smoker out of and found one last winter. got started on the project but then stopped. getting anxious to start again and while looking for ideas, inspiration and information ended up here.still have a weber, still using the flower pot, just want something to make and be able to do larger quantities.


I'm in virginia just a little east of richmond or a little west of williamsburg depending on how you look at it
