Wow! That's a serious looking rig. Very cool. You burn just wood in that or do you use charcoal too?

Charcoal is what l been using but this burn was started with Kingsford blue then I kept feeding with oak coals from the fire pit... never smoked this long with this rig before

Hey HogHeadHale,

If you can find one with acceptable fit and finish, Old Country's have to be one of the best bang for the buck offset smokers you can get from a big box store. Thicker steal, grate-level exhaust, slide out expanded steel cooking racks, built in baffle, warmer on top of firebox. Really a great rig for the money. Had it about 4 months and enjoying it a lot.
