    I built this a while ago, and lit it off, and could'nt get the temp below 350. Set it aside for a while, after reading Bubbas post about his, I did some mods, cleaned it up, and here it is. Lit it off around 9:30 this morning, and its been holding great at 230, in 20 deg weather with high winds. Put 2 pork butts on, will post later on how they turn out.

    Good looking smoker. Its always fullfilling to build something yourself.

    Never added coals all day. Stayed steady for 10 hours on around 8 to 10 lbs of coals. Its the best thing i've built in a while. Here is the finished product.
