    maiden voyage for my home built veritcal smoker a boston butt and some chicken legs QVIEW

    20 lbs isn't to bad probably, but its hard to say for sure since we are not completely sure where the temps were at. There is not a formula that I am aware of. If you are sealed up really tight, even the fire access door. You may get longer burn times. I am pretty regular to get 20 plus hours...

    Water pressure tank BBQ

    Looks like your moving right along, thanks for all the updates.  I am not so sure I would have kept after this project, you are a dedicated smoker my friend. Its all coming together for ya. Without being able to weld on it, the hinge for the lid may be a tough one. Nice work and thanks again...

    RF Build In Slow Motion (Sinks are done!)

    Nice work brother!!!!!    Sucker is really starting to shine like a diamond. Not sure what the plans are for the trailer axles but I fell in love with um as soon as I say that pic. I would build my frame, beef up the frame on the axles then marry the two just like the big rig trailers are...

    maiden voyage for my home built veritcal smoker a boston butt and some chicken legs QVIEW

    Sounds like its working out for ya, but I think I would have used that meat probe to read my smoker temps during the cook. Then every so often, clean the probe and check the meat.  Everything looks great!!!! The only thing I would do different would be flip flop the chicken with the pork.  I...

    The One Ton MONSTER

    Nice looking rig!!!!   I really like it. I'm gonna tip my hat your way, very nice fab work. And I love the TM table, would that be a 4x4? One day I will have the money and the space for a nice cnc table. (I Hope) If you ever make another rig or get the urge to change it up a bit, I saw a...

    Stainless Steal Vertical Drum Build

    Nice, really nice.   Thanks for taking the time to take the pics. As a builder I know that it can be tough to get all the pics that count. Sometimes it can even be a pain in the backside. I think I may need to borrow you gas shock idea for my next build. Mine may be a swing door tho, I hate...

    Painted the Inside... screwed?

    Yes, comet like the bathroom cleaner.  I have talked to several guys that have used the burn method on the barrel liners, still had liner left and used the comet on it and it wiped out. No Kidding. Makes me want to grab a lined drum and try it for myself.

    Painted the Inside... screwed?

    OMG........the inside?    I would go after it with a propane weed burner. If you don't already have one, its time to hit Harbor Freight and grab one. They sure make lighting fires a breeze. Anyways, I would hit it with the flames and after it cools, do the comet wash and call it good.  Gotta...

    Galvanized Barrel???

    I will have to vote that you more then likely got it plenty hot.  I would see what will clean off with a hand held wire brush first. Next I would use the comet. Then if I could scratch the surface and it appeared to be more layers then I would punt.  I weld a fair amount of galv, and its bad...

    Galvanized Barrel???

    If it was galv and it burned,  It would show up as a fluffy white powdery looking stuff. Like nasty white fluff cob webs. When it was burning it would also have made a snap crackle pop and sizzle. Along with green smoke. I bet what you have is the imfamus barrel liner.  You might try hitting...

    Stainless Steal Vertical Drum Build

    A real man of genius.  Fantastic plan and execution, on the design of your rig. I love it. The roller shelves are the bomb man. Gonna have to retain that idea for a future build. The door is simply awesome, kinda like a space ship opening up.  You ask about burning wood. I would think that...

    RF Build In Slow Motion (Sinks are done!)

    Fan-Freakin-Tastic Joel, thats freaking awesome man, I really love it. I'm sure you guys thought this one thru, but I'll ask anyways. Asking from experince, well tragedy that is.  Do the shelves have stops on them,  I really thought that I didn't need stops on mine, I was so so wrong...

    Be careful what pics you post...

    This thread caught my eye.  A while back there was something mentioned about the pic deal and kids. I cant remember the in's and out's of it all but the just of it was.  The pics were taken with some of the new cell phones, geo tagged and posted on the net. Probably Facebook or such. The...
