I decided to try smoking my own barbecue last summer, and mentioned such to my father-in-law. He told me that he had bought a smoker a long time ago and had only used it once, and then given up because he couldn't keep the heat up in the unit using charcoal, and that I could have it if I wanted it. I already had my eye on the Brinkmann vertical smoker that became my first smoker, so I passed on taking his smoker home with me. My father-in-law passed away a few months after our conversation above. This past weekend, my wife and I were over at her parent's house when I ran across the smoker in their storage building. Turns out it's a Charmglow Cook'n Cajun, and it's now a proud addition to the stable here at home.
