Hello my name is Doc and I have been wanting to try smoking for some time. Been looking for a budget way to get into smoking and found the right deal today. $30 netted me this smoker from my neighbor. He had several and had gotten this one as a spare. Never used it. Heavier than hell but needs some work. I didn't want one of the smaller smokers. Wanted something taller and more capacity It needs some work any ideas on some mods? I'm a former welder by trade.
