Well I finally got it finished up Thursday, burned it out and checked everything Friday evening, and then cooked on it Saturday morning. We did 3 butts, 2 racks of ribs - testing a new recipe, 2 chuckies, and 14 pounds of chicken.
The smoker cooked great. It holds temps great and recovers quickly when you open the door. It almost felt like cheating going from my stick burner to this. I was please with the food but also want to explore more pellet options. I have also made a secondary smoke box that I will use the next time around.
This was how the door and the inside turned out. Very pleased with the outcome!
Now time for the business side of things!
Made myself a neat injection pump with a few McMaster Carr parts!
Sorry for the picture quality as I was more focused on cooking than anything, Thanks for viewing and hope to post more food porn soon!
