    Buying wood? Where/what/how much to buy?

    First Smoker I ever built, Seems to work well. The local Maytag store donated an Electric Stove. Tore Down the Stove, re-used the 230 VAC Broiler element (re-mounted vertically and powered by 115 VAC) to maintain the setpoint via a digital controller and an SSR (Solid State Relay) Aw Heck, like...

    Hello Everybody!

    I've had a few Brinkman Bullets over the years, but newer had 10 + Hours to sit and tend the ever-changing temperature, and in Oklahoma, the weather sometimes has problems keeping steady as well. At work, Some guys went together on a small "Bradley Smoker" It is electric, small, but digitally...
