    We're not just wings and beef on weck up here. I built my own smoker with two 55gal drums. They sit one above the other with two smokestacks in between. The bottom drum holds the burning hickory, and the top drum contains the meat. I built it in 2001, and I've smoked briskets, racks of ribs, chicken, sausage, and turkeys. Pulled pork is awesome on it and smoked wings are worth the effort as long as a main piece is also being prepared. I'm thinking of acquiring a concession trailer in the future. The smoking season is a bit seasonal up here, but I don't think that I'd miss more than 3 months a year. Glad to be a member.

    Man missed this too...gettin' old I guess.

    Welcome to SMF Bear! I have seen that type smoker a few times... seems quite efficient. You burn all wood? If so, what do ya preburn in..or ya just get a nice bed going, add the meat and toss a chunk in now and then?

    Bearmoe, Welcome to the site. I'm from the Buffalo area as well. (Lancaster) The cold does make smoking a little more challenging, but I'm planning to smoke 15# of pork ribs tomorrow.

    Welcome to smf, bear,...........make sure you put a pin in our sticky pushpin map so there's more of us western new yorkers showing pride.

    If you want a taste of working some barbecue concessions you're more than welcome to come and work with me, and be sure and come down and visit the newly renovated restaurant we opened in Angola.

    This forum is by far the most active, animated and informational forum around, you'll enjoy it.

    Hope to "meat" you sometime.
