Welcome aboard.........looks like you have done a lot of work on that cooker. Looks good. I wonder if the stack is large enough and what are you doing for inlets?

what part of S. Maine are you in? I'm in Bridgton.

first off thanks for looking at my post. Im from sanford. I have a 2 inch pipe for the outlet withan in 1 1/4 inlet both with valves on them so they can be adjusted im more worried about the inlet being big enough. I spent most of my time trying to get the door right it sprang 4 inches. Anyways im going to prob do a tri tip and some burgers on it for the first cook im mad that Im busy this weekend im dreaming of smoked meat

Well then........you are just like the rest of us.......hooked on smokin'.

The outlet in the pix didn't look that big to me. Guess my trifocals need upgrading.

Good luck on the trial run.

Hey , just for giggles take a picture of that smoker with a human being next to it so we can gauge the size of that beast.

It came out more like buckboard or what I guess b.b looks like I have never done it but not bad for my first attempt at any bacon. I need to soak it longer or use less salt. My wife has been eating it faster than I can cut it so I guess it passes
