New (kinda) Cooker Bebute and Turkey QVIEW

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Morn'en everyone.
Wanted to share some pictures of the smoker I've been working on this summer and some turkey and ham picts for the company T-Day party I'm cooking for today.

Cooker's previous life was a Stokeamatic Coal Stoker.

Temperature in Fruita, Colorado at 3:00 this morning

Turkey's ON!

Patience boy, PATIENCE!

Thanks for checking out my picts.
I'll share more along the way.

Thanks, Blue.
I tried lifting the skin and rubbing butter for the first time and as you can see, got a little carried away and tore it before I knew what I was doing. Hafta be more careful next time.

Thanks for all of the comments. This was one 'ell-of-a project to get everything working together. Over engineered it, then basically took it back to Zero and got it right the second time.

I thought the cook box was WAY to big at first, 3' wide x 2' deep x 4' tall. Was trying to save $$ when I had the metal bent, then I got it home and was like "GEEZE!". Now that I'm using in, I like it, especially today. Have all ready been asked to do all six turkeys next year.

NECKS - Not Sausage. If you look close you can see the angle I have welded to the top of each side - big plans to hang rods across for sausage some day, just haven't gotten to it.

Again, thanks. Means a lot to get complements from this group.
