Hello from Southwest Louisiana

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My name is Louis and I live in Southwest Louisiana. I been BBQing for some time and dabbled a little with smoke, but I wanted to have the ability to do more than throw some wood on my charcoal in my bbq pit as an afterthought, so I decided to have a smoker built. As we speak, I am seasoning the inside of it. Here's a photo:

Looking forward to getting started!!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I was hoping there was a great bunch of people here. Also glad to see some members from my home state. As soon as I can I'll get started doing some smoking and posting photos.

Welcome to SMF

Welcome Louis , glad to have you here at SMF! You will like it here!
I for one sure would like to see other images of your smoker! Inside and Out! Is it run on electric power? I see a wire coming towards it? I'm planning on taking a 250 gal propane tank and using as a slow smoker for hanging hams, fowl and sausage. Yours looks something that I see running in my head if you know what I mean?

I'll take some additional photos. I was curing the inside at the time of the photos, so I couldn't do much else. The wire you see is a propane line. I use a modified propane burner and a homemade short stainless steel pot in which I put the wood. I believe it will work, but like I said I'm a newby to this. Learning is part of the fun. I'll get you some more photos soon.

Hi there patcap just wanted to welcome you to SMF. You'll like it here caused there are alot of good people here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking and homemade projects. Your'e sure looks mighty sweet, with loads of room and a good heat source to boot. First you might want to check out the E-course it's free and really informative. The next thing you already have down pat anf that is Qview pictures to others. Then just go out and get something to smoke and if you have any questions just ask and we will answer or do our best to point you in the right direction. So welcome again.

I'm a big hog hunter (4 this year so far), so this smoker was designed and built with that very thing in mind!!!
