Howdy all, I take every chance I get to smoke somthing each weekend..from chicken to pork, ( the butts are the best, oh yea ) and I use a barrel with a side chamber for fire. Before I used a Weber...loved it but not enough room.
New info would be great and I'll help anyway I can.

BMW'S motorcycles, Smoked meats and Beer !! :D

Re: New guy to the forum

Thanks to all for the warm welcome !!!

Nothing like fire'n up the smoker for family and friends. Today Superbowl Sunday, I had dragged the smoker to my brothers house last thursday, ( in a trailer behind the John Deere, ain't that redneck ) and we've got about 30 lbs. of pure pork enjoyment, (plus 2 whole hens that have been brined on the gas grill) smoke'n up the neighborhood. Tv's in 4 rooms in the house and one on the patio for the cooking crew, cold brews, lots of food and some of the finest friends around !!!!!!

I'm looking for a thermastat for my smoke and haven't been able to locate anything, abody got an idea ??????


Life is too short not to live it, and when your thrown a curve, gear down high rpm's, shift in the saddle toward the inside and you'll shoot through it !!!! 8)

Yep Gunslinger, I used to ride the HD'S and have two brothers that are Roadkinger's. I think a man needs 2 or 3 bikes, one should be a v-twin ground pounder, with ape hangers and a monster fatty for a rear end, the second should be a distance bike with lots of comfort, and the 3'rd should be dual sport, oh yea!

Be safe on the road, and remember, thier is no bad riding days juts bad riding gear !!!

You know you gotta problem.....

Howdy all, just to let you guys know I'm working on my skills and dealing with the "addiction / compulsive physiological need for a habit forming...... "

I tried using a brine solution on 2, 5lb. hens a couple of weekends ago. It was a cold sunday, highs only in the low 30's and high winds still a little ice on the road so the motorcycle was out of the question. Now my attention turned to the smoker since I had the hens soaking, (12hrs. ) in the brine anyway. Being the thoughtful husband and on a food budget, I have started to serch for deals in the local paper for items to smoke and drink, (1'st step in the addiction) which my wife has brought to my attention. I'm quick to remind her of my research and cupon deals that we can eat...still she knows where this is going and she thinks I'm crazy. Bundled up as much as possible I start on the task of dragging the smoker around the carport to maximize the draft opportunities from the windy conditions. I use a cage made from expanded metal formed in a square and about 7 inches high placed in the combustion chamber for a fire starter, works great. With the fire going, the hens rinsed off and rubed down I place 'em on the grill and grab a cold one. I don't have any thermostats so I figure the temp by placing my hand over the smoke stack, if I can hold for 7-10 seconds it's mid-range and works for what I'm doing. The hens turned out great after 5hrs. and my wife is becoming a true fan of the smoker...she still thinks I've lost my mind !!!!!

You're looking for a themastat, or a thermometer? I think you're looking for a thermometer - check out this thread. I got the Maverick ET-73 (dual probe - made for a smoker) and it worked great for me on my first smoke (a brisket). Purchased mine from partshelf.com. Good luck!
