    Last night I met the wife for happy hour at one of our local breweries, McMenamins Old St Francis School (McMenamins buys old schools, hotels etc. and turns them into brewery compounds). There are multiple bars an movie theater, cigar bar and several outdoor dining areas. Since we were blessed with 60º weather and sun we opted to sit outside by the fire pit. Right next to the fire pit was this beauty:

    It's a Dream Werks (DW Smoker) insulated pellet smoker, made in Walterville Oregon. They aren't cheap, but after talking to the chef using it he said the thing is super efficient and produces great smoked food!

    That is a beautiful smoker.  It is so similar in concept to my homebuilt pellet burning fridge conversion.  I do agree with the chef.  Being insulated, they are so efficient.  I looked at the specs on the DW's. They get 45 hours of heat and smoke out of 40 lbs. of pellets.  That is about the same as what I burn, a little less than a pound an hour.  And, pellets are cheap, 13 bucks for 20 lbs. cheap, even cheaper if I buy by the ton.  25 cents or so per pound at a ton.  At lower temps, they produce beautiful thin blue smoke.  My wife says she has yet to taste ribs better than mine at any restaurant.  The manufacturer shows pictures of the unit smoking cheese.  Hmmm, there is no way I can keep the temp that low on mine.  225 is the absolute lowest temp I can go without the fire pot going into a flame-out situation.  From what I can see, it looks like they are using a Treager controller.

    From what it looks like in the pictures, fall is in full swing.  Is that a Leinie's Oktoberfest?  [​IMG]

    Hammerhead from McMenamins.

    Yeah that 45hrs is a long time! I wonder how they are getting the cheese smoke done.

    Nice Case!  Happy hour...60* night...a nice fire...a cold beer...and the better half to enjoy it with.  Doesn't get any better than that!

    That insulated pellet rig is a real beauty too!
