Great thread!

I melded a New Braunfels upright with an unknown brand SFB, which gives me a lot of flexibility for smoking at different temps and 1500 square inches of smoking surface.  We call her "Grillestate."

The only time I give my smokers, names is if they break on me. All names then mostly contain 4 letters unless I take them to 2 syllables. When my "like new factory Refurbished"  Louisiana Whole Hog cooker arrived in extremely used condition with the left fire pot not working at all... I think I gave it 4 or 5 names all were 2 syllables. When Danson shipped me a huge box of parts to replace everything and in the box were parts for 3 different cookers non of which were mine... I gave it several more names. I gave it a few more names when I had to carry the 400 lbs. cooker through my house and down 2 flights of stairs to send it back! I think I even called it a few more as I was pushing the 400 lbs. beast out to the FedEx truck.

Wow wingman,


Sounds like you had quite a run of bad luck there, I hope its all better now. What did the shipping cost for 400 lbs with fed-x ?


BTW. My smokers have no names yet, like Wingman says, at least no names that are permanent or suitable while children are around.

I served on a submarine, and I was thinking, because smokers resemble the big steel tubes that I spent months underwater in, that it would be fitting to find a submarine related name for the new Lang. 


Our mascot was a fighting turtle named Frumpy, and that might make a good name. We'll see.

I call it "The General"    Since you are a Navy guy, maybe "Skipper", Admiral, or Captain??

Tom37, Danson's ate the return shipping costs. I have no idea what that was. The owner of All Things BBQ (the dealer) was pissed at them and he is building me a custom whole hog Pellet cooker of the same size but using 1/4" steel as he does in his Yoder builds. I might have to name this one some thing sweet when it gets here. Or not


Now the "General;" above looks cool. I like BIG FAT pipes! The name suites it.

Mine is simply WALLE cuz the wife and kids have a cruel sense of humor and when I was building her they thought it looked the Pixar's W.A.L.L.E. (Waste Allocation Load Lifter - Earth class).


Or in Wife.... More of my BBQ @#$%  !


Ain't she purdy!
