Smok' N Steve......

Hey this is your brother in law!!!

I can't believe I found this forum. I remember you showing me it but did'nt know the name. Took awhile but I found it!

The smokers are coming along nice! We need to talk. I think I want one for camping!! LOL.

I have a 6.5hp motor waiting for a project. maybe we can make a cooler cart to tow around the little smoker!?? LOL

Oh ya the mower deck came out very nice. I finished painting it and put new blades on it and installed it back on the old cub cadet. Works great. Thanks for the use of your mig!!! Life saver!!

2 brothers, Wow!

Hey bro's,

Brother Bill---cool, 6.5 hp!!!!, we will need some slicks for tires, maybe we can deal with GoodYear for a hickory blend of rubber, so when we burn out, it will be a nice Thin Blue color with an unbelievebale BBQ Smell!!!! Welcome to the site, we will have you smok'n in no time!!!!

Brother Dave----Its friday, have to get some Camels Milk!! You still want one of these?

Been busy re-flashing a couple of leaky Skylights and stuff like that...will fix the wet sheetrock next week!

I should be painting the Clones today----I HOPE. I finally got a day to finish them up. Just have to make food grates, firebox grates, paint, mount gauges and wheels plus the propane systems.

I am hoping to have Pics tonight!!!!


More Parts below.......

This is what I meant by a cooler cart!

I have a motor (brand new 6.5 honda clone engine) and also know a guy ( down at the yard ) giving away a go cart with a bad motor. maybe we can use the parts off the old go cart to make a new cooler cart! Maybe weld up a neat little frame with a nice hitch to move around the little smoker..

I have some work to do on my truck but if I have enough time i'll ride my motorcycle over today and we can talk...

Brother Steve,
I am still interested in one but currently must wait as I spent my allowance on a Lodge 5" Dutch oven, 14" spider with lid, and a very collectible square Griswold waffle iron.

Clone Progress

Here is the Pics I promised---99.9% done. I like the cooler cart Bill---NICE Wheels!

I made a better fire box grate and a better food grate. I took a picture of the lang 60 in the back to give you an idea on size.

Just have to add the front jack wheels and propane systems.

I will probably pre-season them too--only because I want to show them love before they leave me:-(

What size pipe did you use for a smokestack?

What size is the grease drain valve?

I just met Steve this past Sunday, Aug 3, and picked up one of these little babies. Steve is a wonderful human being, and the little smoker is an awful lot of fun to use and to have sitting on the picnic table at the camp site. Great conversation piece and a really great smoker for small amounts of food. I'll be posting my first experiences with the Mini soon. As a tease, first thing was a Bratty Fatty, brats with pepperoni and cheeses, then 2 Breakfast fatties, then some some pig candy. All fun and easy and only about a pound of lump for all of the cooks. Awesome!!

Thanks Dick, I hope your VACA at Long lake has been a good one despite this moisture we've been having. It was a pleasure meeting you and Elliot. You should be a proud Dad. Can't wait for your Q-views! I have already sampled some of your apple wood-- Yum--Thanks for that:-) Glad you are finding her easy to use, get that 3lb roast, let me know how it came out!!!!

Sincerely, Steve


The pipe is 1 1/4" and the drain is 1/2". You can use a nipple and cut the threads off. Hope this helps,

To Smoking Gun......

I have 2 left to sell, but I have all the templates and quite a few tanks if someone wanted a bunch made up. Originally, that is why I made so many, but the purchase fell thru. If anyone is interested, just PM me and I can save $ by avoiding e-bay, etc. I would really like to see one of these at a Comp next to a big Lang just chugging away!!!

To Danger Dan........

I think your wife might be right, I may need therapy!!!!!!
