    I found this smoker on Craigslist and couldn't pass it up. The wife gave me her blessing and I bought it on my way home from work today.

    Tell me what ya think of her. I don't have a name yet though.

    The metal is 5/16 everywhere. The old man I got it from said it was 20 something years old. It has been sitting in his barn for a while and he couldn't get it in his back yard so he needed to sell it.

    it is amazing what that high temp black paint will do to what looks like a rust bucket...

    The one I just refurbished, I used a pressure washer on it...sprayed the rust with a good acid remover...scrubbed it with wire brush and when that pressure washer hit it, it almost shined!!!..LOL, then on went the paint...

    He has already said he needs a baffle. Test run showed about a 15-20 degree difference from end to end. He is out there priming it now so the smoking can commence. Takes a while to get that baby warmed up
