    Finished my first build

    Disregard, the color did not overrun itself. Which is what I was afraid of. This is the first true cook, spare ribs were pretty textbook. Super shitty trim job though .. second rack was a lot better

    Finished my first build

    I appreciate it..... it's been alot of work. Had I had the funds, in a way would have been cheaper to purchase a quality offset. In the sense that it cost me about $1000 in materials and nearly a solid month of working on it almost daily. But I'm happy now that it's finished and nearly all...

    How to keep original paint on propane tank smoker

    Almost finished with my 120 gallon offset. Down the road going to get it sandblasted and patina it. But currently just going to leave it for a while with the original flaking paint. I knocked off all the loose paint and rust and wiped it down. But what's the best way to seal it for a year or...
