    Hi All,

    I've been poking around the forum for awhile and finally decided to post.

    I'm a former Marine from Peculiar MO (I used to love Jack Stack in Martin City), now living in Boston. I am new to smoking but have jumped right in with a couple of pork butt's, turkey breast & whole chicken.

    A couple of months ago I built my own smoker out of materials I found on my property. (we just moved in, in Nov.) Built mostly out of congrete blocks & a wheel barrel cut in half to serve as a lid...very primitive, low to the ground, but always kept the perfect temp. I had to start somewhere as the wife would not let me get a smoker...she's a M******* & they just dont know what they have been missing.....

    .....well no she does & bought me a Brinkmann verticle 2-door...so it's time to get it on like donkey kong!!!

    Welcome to SMF Cheyman. You found a great place to learn the art of smoking meats. You'll have to hook up with PeculiarMike, another Peculiar individual with a smoking habit.

    Looking forward to your posts.

    Here's a quick pic of my primitive smoker...the blocks on the side slide for better air flow if needed. The front block moves out of the way to get to the fire & the lid (the 2 peices are not attached) is sprayed with white high heat paint. total cost: $0.00. I'll try to get a couple better & inside pics shortly.

    Ok here's a couple better pics of my homeade smoker. Nothing fancy!

    I would stoke my fire by moving this fancy square block.

    With the lid open. I used a cheap grate (not pictured) I got from Wally World.

    Gives me some ideas though!! I want to build something for a pig roast - just have ta make somethin alittle bigger. Don't want anythin fancy. Rather spend more time cookin than buildin.
