    this might be a dumb ? is that two flower pots made into a smoker and hope your brisket turns out fantastic

    haha yes yes it is... two ceramic flower pots.. which so far I'm impressed cause when I change the wood chips it only drops 15-20 degrees, then I throw the cover back on and instantly it raises back to 200 degrees. it holds the heat very well.. I'm about 1.5 hr into it..

    nice lots cheaper than the green egg or kamodo i will have to keep this one in mind
     
  11. Thats really cool. If you don't mind, after your smoke post up some pics of inside, would love to see how exactly you made it/how your using it.

    I'm using a electric hot plate. I took it apart pulled the burner off and installed it in the bottom of the pot ran high temp wire to the hot plate case which is next to the smoker, if you look closely you can see it in the picture,. and it's a 1000watt hot plate.. that is adjustable.. and yes I will post some pictures of the inside of it.. after I get done smoking
