    Angle Brackets?

    OK I've cut and bent my charcoal basket to form using #9 Expanded Metal 3/4".  Looks pretty good.  I was going to pick up some angle brackets from the local HD but saw every stinking bracket was either galvinized or zinc plated. Reading in the forums I don't want to have bad gas from the fire...

    Smoker Front shelf / Counter

    I've been upgrading my smoker (Braunsfeld SFB) and am near completion. The one thing I really need is a place to put my beer...um I mean utensils.  I saw a post about the UDS meat board plastic.  I ordered that and mounted but I don't like it as a front shelf.  I'm going to put some collapsable...

    Offset Smoker Mod - First Times a Charn

    After reading about so many mods, and as I got a smoker (OSFB) from someone who didn't want it,  I spent the last two weekends scraping, cleaning, cutting and reading... The Smoker was in a backyard for two summers without any TLC.  I can say their was a massive amount of scraping rust and...

    For the love of Smokin' this is wonderful.  I must say I've re 'kindled' (yes pun intended) my desire for smoking meat as I used to do this years ago.  Time and new position has afforded me the opportunity to get a 1/8" steel (homemade) OFB 28" smoker someone didn't want.  I've been reading the...
