What code do you use for importing images? Mine seem to be massive compared to yours.
I don't want to be inconsiderate.

As soon as I get a moment I'll fire it up and see how it works, it has to be somewhere near.

They can be massive from the phone camera. I edit mine with the Windows photo editor (right click the photo icon and select edit). I then use the "resize"option to take them to 30%. That takes them to a reasonable size for the forum.

Sounds good

The smoke enters via the stainless pipe which has holes drilled in it, these will be facing downwards in operation, hopefully any other condensate will drip out and into a waiting tray.
Suggest you put the run from the firebox to the product chamber on a slight incline. Also face the smoke exit holes as they are pictured in the first picture below. This will allow all condensation to flow back toward the firebox rather than dripping into the chamber.

When not in use, it all packs away into the main wooden box.
Good idea as I can see you can extend the run if desired.

Thanks for all the help and advice guys, it's very much appreciated.

Your welcome. Lets see how it works.

Hi Baz, that cabinet is looking good! Will have to let us know how it performs!

Did you get the snow?

Snow? I think I could have counted the flakes which fell. I am just watching the news and they are banging on about it. The Midlands had "A couple of centimetres". That's not even an Inch, until we get "Feet" of snow it doesn't count.

I will resize the pics from now on, thanks Wade. I wondered how you did it.

As soon as I can I will get it fired up and see how it performs and let you know, good or bad. I am really optimistic this time, it all makes sense.
I can see now that although getting the smoke right is important, the salt/brine side of it is even harder to get right.
I am writing everything down that I do, this is where I have gone wrong in the past. When I got decent results, I couldn't repeat it as I didn't know what I had done and didn't know where to tweak it to get it right.

Even we had snow this morning - which is almost unheard of. But like Baz, we could have counted the flakes... Nothing settled.

 

Did you get snow too Steve... or is that dandruff from too much sun :-)

If you posted some Tom it would probably be more than fell from the sky, the British media are making it out to be an apocalypse.

Have you had a chance to use that baby? If so, how did it work?

 

Anxiously awaiting.

Hi Tom, no I haven't used it yet, I have been on call this weekend and I have been mucking about building a DIY Sous Vide bath.
How are you doing? I hope you are not buried in snow.

Everything is fine. I have the equipment to handle the snow.

 

Keep us informed on your Sous Vide.
