New Braunfels Hondo

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just picked up one of these today at my local (what used to be) Cummins Tool for $99.

It's outside seasoning now, and I'm noticing all the leaks (I've been reading here, I was expecting this). I was thinking about pulling the firebox back off and using a high temp silicone sealer. Is there a recommended one, or can I just use the same stuff I use when working on engines?
Still need to buy a couple thermometers to mount at grill level, a couple digitals, and extend the stack to the grills.
This has got to be the best Mothers day present my wife ever got! Really, it was her idea. I keep showing her pics from this site.
Tomorrow for Mom's day we're doing a tenderloin, a couple pork chops left in the freezer, ABT with little smokies and chedder. the "wicked baked bean" recipe I found here, and a few twice baked/smoked potatoes.

If I remember I'll post a q-view tomorrow.

Good deal for a good quality offset.

Sounds like a nice unit...........For sealing the sfb to the unit you could use fiberglass rope gasket for firplaces........Thats what I used on mine...........

And the finished product... The potato's could have went a bit longer. They were kinda hard.

Yeah, I need to get a decent thermometer. I have a digital fork that's nice, but I have to open the smoker to use it.
