Minnesota Smoker

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi All,


I am from Minnesota and fairly new to smoking. I have used smokers a few times in the past (mainly for fish) but consider myself a newbie.  


My fascination with smoking was reignited a few weeks back after my younger brother brought his Bradley smoker along on our 4-wheeling trip.  My experience with smoking was limited to the use of a "little chief" electric smoker.   It required so much attention I quickly lost interest, then I saw his Bradley. I really liked the machine, the automation was great and my interest was instantly peaked.


After getting home from the trip I immediately started researching smokers and initially decided the Bradley was for me.   After further research, and seeing all those custom builds, I got the bug to do my own thing instead of purchasing a ready made machine.  Before going further I should note one of my favorite hobbies is building machines so a DIY smoker seemed like just the right summer challenge for me.


Since most my machine builds are posted online I thought I would join here and post the smoker build progress for those that are interested.  I find joining groups like this is an excellent way to both learn and share so everyone wins.
