    Welcome to the site, alot of good info here and people willing to help.

    Oh [​IMG]    LOL

    Lets see this smoker.
  4. this was the start . A girl at work had a boat trailer she wanted to scrap . I told her I'd buy it from her and she said just get it out of my yard . And I bought the 250 lbs lp tank from a guy who sells out dated ones for 190.00

  5. . Got the 55 gal drum from work . Wanted to make sure it would work right before spending to much money
  6. . Had a heck of a time figuring out where to put the hinges for the door . After i cut the door and seen how heavy it was I wanted it to open out not up to help with that
  7. . All painted . I have a rack to cook on and I'm going to make a rack to hang summer sausage from to smoke during deer season . I have found a small wood stove I'm going to put in place of the 55 gal drum

  9. Thanks I have enjoyed using it to . I have done about 100 pounds of pork but , some brisket , smoked salmon and Canadian goose breast . The only thing I messed up bad on was an 18 pound turkey . Think I over seasoned it

    Welcome, I'm a newbie too. I have found some very interesting recipes, and ideas on here, and I hope you do too.

  11. Yes I have got some recipes off here and enjoyed them . The one question I have is . I just bought a house and it has 8 acres of woods and it has the rough bark small cherries on it . My dad called it chines cherry and said the cherries where poison . Are thay and can you smoke with it
