Here is the smoker up close. Used aluminium angle brackets on all sides to hold the grates up. Anchored with concrete hammer sets (1/4 x 1 inch). Need to descale the grilling grate and drill 2 small holes in the charcoal pan so that when it rains it can drain. I started smoking some ribs rather than finish this. Just couldn't wait to test all the meats. I need to also brick the flue and landscape around it. But, that can wait until August. Here are some picks of the food. I must say that this smoker holds the heat very very well!
I made a brisket. Had great flavor but a little tough. Should have left it in there longer but was starving and I am learning this as I go.
Happy 4th of July to all and a good weekend for our friends across the pound!!!!! Leoric, my dad is from Scotland and I just loved the week I spent in London. Hope to go back one day.
Very nice. I've got what I hope is not a stupid question. In all the builds I've seen on here I can't tell if there is a division between the smoking area and the fire box. Is that just open from top to bottom or is there some sort of adjustable plate to vary the heat/smoke?
