My name is Clayton, just signed up on November 15th 2015.
I'm proud to say I live just outside of Millarville Alberta Canada on a family farm and I own a small excavating company that specializes in septic system installation.
Im a semi avid smoker with huge desire to learn more by both sharing information and by doing!
Ive smoked/bbq'd on several cookers including Big Steel Keg, conventional offset,(don't recall brand) Carson rotisserie, Big chief tin foil unit, Bradley electric, home made cinderblock pig cooker, Cookshack Amerique, natural gas grill and a good old camp fire.
I am by no means a pro or even a good source of information, just had the fortune of trying out diferent smoking units and techniques over the years.
Myself and a friend have just set out to build a larger smoker unit and have found lots of invaluable information for our build on this site.
Its going to be a 36" diameter 60" long (cook chamber) reverse flow offset on a trailer. I have the facility to do the work with relative ease, just need the info to make it perform properly. (I may be asking a lot of questions!!)
Ive added a photo of the very beginning of the build. That 36" pipe will be the core of the cook chamber. Theres enough to make 2 units if we decide we need more than one.
Truthfully we've jumped the gun a bit as were not completely designed yet, for us to have this in the shop is a bit silly. But we got excited and wanted to get dirty doing something other than just research!!!!
Im really looking forward to chatting with some of you and learning from all. I hope one day I can contribute something too!
