I have an aubern pid and unless you plan on using all its functions I would buy something easier to use. My buddy bought one in couquitlam for 75 bucks new. I wish I had of gone that route.

I managed to find some time to work on the smoker today it is starting to look a lot like a coffin. Tomorrow I will put in the hole for the smoke pipes and hopefully put the front and door on. It should start to look a like a smoker soon.
