Hey everyone! I'm just wanting to get into the art of the Q. I got a free 12 gauge steel computer cabinet from work, and am going to attempt to make it into a vertical smoker (hopefully soon
) I live in a little place called Entiat, WA. There was one good BBQ restaurant in nearby Wenatchee, but we're waiting for him to open back up.
Here's a pic of a cabinet just like the one I have, just not quite as used... I'll probably post some real pics later... Looking forward to drawing from the expertise of everyone here!

Wenatchee! Passed through there riding BNSF trains monitoring locomotive performance. Nice country.

Wow, thanks for all the replies... Actually, I'm open to any suggestions that anyone has. I'm not sure in what direction to go. I also have an air tank that could be used for an offset.... hmmmm. It's about 18" round and 26" long. Thank you in advance. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
