Fire box

Debi
Thanks again for your support I just love this forum.I made the fire box from a clip light shade that's the cone part and for the fire box I had this Chuppa suker can with a lid,I cut out the btm and put the lid there and then inserted the light shade into the top and screwed all of it together.then attached the cone shade to the smoker.Thanks again

Its A Smoker

Worked on it today and finished it up Its a smoker now.Made the hole bigger between the sfb and the smoker I also made a sfb baffle to direct the heat down,also foiled one of the grates and I keep it on the sfb side.Then I made a stack ext.dowm to the btm grate so the heat rises up thru the ext instead of out of the top of the smoker.boy does it work great and holds the heat very well now.Tried some spare ribs tips the 3-2-1 method and they were juicy and falling off the bones.This charcoal cooking is a hard thing to master but the more I fire up the more I am getting use to my smoker guess it just takes time and practice.
Thanks for everyones help and support.
Good Luck and Good Smoking

I've done it in a old gas grill that I tore the guts out of for a charcoal burner. Made a 1/4 inch steel plate that fits in the grill, almost up to the closed lid. It slides in between the grate, walling off about 1/3 of the inside. Start my wood fire there, meat on other side. 'Tain't perfect, but it worked.

That looks fantastic! I love that little smoker!

Keep a count of how many coals you used to come up to temperature and when you added more it'll make it easier next time. I keep a log of everything I do, rubs speices, juices right down to counting coals and times to add them for what temperatures.
