Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by bluezman, Jul 5, 2007.

  1. Hello from the Catskills mountains of New York. My name's Charlie and I'm addicted to BBQ. I don't have the equipment to smoke even a single weener right now, so I've deceided to build something.

    I just dropped in to say hello, and that I'll be around trying to gleen a little info from you. I'm willing to share any knowledge I already have: welding , fabrication, machineing, etc.

    welcome to SMF. check out the different sections pertaining to specific smokers, depending on what you want to build; eg, wood burner, charcoal, electric, LP gas, or a combo of some of these. i built mine out of a 55-gallon drum. welded a side-firebox to it i bought from Lowes. it is in my sig. i am building another one now. i used another drum, and made a firebox from an air tank off an old compressor.

    Welcome to SMF Bluezman!!! I'd say w/ the info here at SMF a newbie can do anything.
  9. Absolutely! There's a wealth of great people on this board and they share what they can. Since I've been here only a short time I'll just say welcome and that I've found solutions to the problems I was having right away here. I'm up in Rochester -

  10. Thank you all for the warm welcome.

    I've already started collecting a bunch of junk...I mean high tolorence precision parts, with which to start my build.

    I'm going to go with something easy to build and easy to use to start out with: a small upright electric unit. So, I'll be moveing over to the Electric Smoker section of SMF.

    Hope to have something to contribute soon.
