Builders section?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hey gang, I'm not sure where to post this but....

I keep seeing all these fantastic build threads of different smokers and I keep occasionally seeing memebers ask for resources on the subject. Would it be possible to open up a sub forum under the Equipment section to collect some of this information. I'm afraid a lot of our knowledge on this subject is getting lost in the pile o'threads that we have. I know several us have had to visit a clone builder site track down certain things and would hope we could build a similar knowledge base here.

Maybe there is a better solution, just think I see something that would be beneficial to the site.

Well, if the rule is....if there is enough interest we will do it

Then I put my vote in for this....awesome idea, lots of folks doing builds

I'm with you. It would make it a great deal easier for those looking for tips on their own builds. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

This is so weird. I was just talking with someone today about this very same thing. LOL

I think a thread or a sub forum on clone builds would be awesome. There are so many talented fabricators and ideas floating around, someone who is thinking about building their own would have a great resource here at out site.

I second this IdeaPDT_Armataz_01_34.gifPDT_Armataz_01_34.gif:PDT_Arm ataz_01_34:

Just a few examples of what I'm talking about:

Philly Single--Insulated build

Knowledge being shared here:

Something tells I'm gonna be watching this one

There was another one from earlier in the year that had astounding craftsmanship but for some reason I can't locate it now.

This is a great idea!!!!!!!

I have subcribed to 11 threads so far just to keep track of various builds and so I can find them at a later date. A smoker build forum would be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

+ 1 for me also. Looking at building a smokehouse when I get back home. Lot of the expats living there haven't had good Q in a long time. When I was home I was doing about 20 kilo's per week of hams and shoulders, and a few fatties now and then.

lets do this thing

I vote yes

One of the things I look for are posts that include building, fabricating, modifying, adding controls etc.

It looks like there are enough post to have its own section.

Currently I have a insulated gasser and am toying with electric and PID controls. I have another in the works for my son that probably also will be a hybrid.

I can say from a Newbie standpoint that having to search around through all the present and past Threads can be a daunting task. None of us wants to keep asking the same 'ol questions over and over again, but as Newbies to Smokin' and wanting to be as diligent as possible when it comes to the actual "pit work", if we can't find the info we need then we have to ask again. Consolidating the info would definitely cut back on the repititious questioning and let us move on to the more informed inquiries. Just finding out all the modifications to the CG-sfb literally took days of searching and I still missed some valuable info from some of the older posts.

Consolidating info is a good thing...PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif
