Morning Smoke fans! I am new the SMF and new the whole custom smoker design. I can tell you one thing for sure, I wish I would have found this site before I started to make a smoker. To give a little bit of a background I have been smoking on a little Walmart offset for about four years now and it turned into a hobby that went to insanity. My dad and I decided to give it a shot when we wanted to do some pulled pork for my Grandma's 80th birthday party and after that I was getting up at 5 am to start smoking every weekend that summer, fall and even some of the winter. But the biggest hook didn't start until I decided to do my first local contest for Ribs. After watching cooking shows on the BBQ tours and different triple D episodes most people have their own rub and bbq sauce. And I decided I need to do the same thing. Several months later I found it and have great success so far but I really needed a bigger smoker. Hints why I am here and hopefully some of you can help me out.
