Here is a pic of my first smoker. Everyone has told me that it won't work. I got the plans for it off the internet. So far I have smoked a beef brisket, Turkey legs, 3 batches of deer sticks, and two batches of venison jerky. So far everything has worked out perfectly. I have experimented with many temperature ranges and was able to maintain a temp from as low as 80 degrees to as high as 350 degrees. I use a propane turkey fryer burner with a control knob, a large cast iron frying pan filled with wood chips. I love it and it works great .
