    Vertical Smoker -vs- Offset Smoker? - Need advice on buying one

    Good morning all. A few weeks back I got a very cheap, very small, Char-Broil offset from FB Marketplace. It is a piece of junk. I sold it and now I am in the market for another smoker. I always liked the idea of vertical smoking and heard that WSM is a great one, but I am turned off by that...

    Temp Differences once loaded up with Meat

    Hello y'all I've recently completed my offset build which is pictured below. Today I've loaded it up with a few brisket and I"ve noticed that the temp difference from side to side has increased greatly. It used to be within 5-10 degrees side to side now it's closer to 50 degrees difference...

    How much difference would 3/8th inch wall make vs 1/4th?

    Hi, I am looking at either getting a Workhorse 1975t or a Fatstack 120. Currently the two factors I am considering are the extra volume in the fatstack and the thicker wall in the Workhorse. I am wondering if anyone has any experience in cold weather with a 3/8th inch wall and a 1/4th inch...

    First Smoke

    Hey Everyone, I finally christened my smoker over Memorial Day weekend so I figured I'd share. Despite being nervous to test out my fire management skills on a VERY windy and hot day, I'd say it was an overall success! I was unable to source proper plate dino ribs, but found a 5.5 lb plate of...

    Stainless offset build

    Hey everyone, I'm just starting a Smoker build after coming across some 20" x 3/16" wall 316L stainless pipe at a friends shop. I'm roughly copying the franklin smoker design, with some tweaks to my liking. I know 3/16" is on the thin side for the pipe, but the thermal coefficient of stainless...

    I've been busy learning the ins and outs of running my Bell Fab, spending as many free weekend days and weekday nights as I can building fires and testing methods.

    Using Masterbuilt Gravity Series Without Controller?

    Hi folks, I’ve had my Masterbuilt 560 Gravity Series smoker for almost 2 years now. So far, it’s been awesome. The one obvious downfall about it is that it needs to be plugged in. I was curious if anyone has experimented with using one of these smokers “unplugged”. It’s designed similar to a...

    Long Lasting Cover

    Hey y’all, long time lurker, first post. I’ve got a barrel smoker with an offset box and unsurprisingly the cover it came with when I bought it two years ago is now so brittle it tears every time I touch it. I’m in the mid-Atlantic where we get pretty cold winters (20s/30s) and sweltering...
