As I posted in a previous thread, I got on the list to have one built - tmgpits.com. I am getting a 52" Copperhead reverse flow, this will be my first experience with reverse flow. Anyway, Brandon called me today and my new cooker will be ready next week. I'm excited to be getting it, but I have to temper that excitement with the reality that I can't go pick it up until probably the first of June. But it'll be here soon enough and I'm going to start planning my first cook. Ideas anyone?

More to follow in the near future....

Did you get the off road package or trailer options?

kilo charlie kilo charlie nailed it with the pork shoulder idea. Inexpensive and forgiving.

Looking forward to your posts on it. I’m loving reverse flow after two cooks.

I got the off road package as I don't really see myself taking it to very many places. It's primarily for personal use for family and friends.

So I found a day to go pick up my new smoker. My fishing partner and I made the trip to Knoxville yesterday to see the shop and get my 52" Copperhead.

Let me start by saying that this thing is almost too nice to cook in. It is almost a work of art and the attention to detail is amazing, pictures just do not do it any justice. Every time I look at it I see another feature that obviously had some thought put into it such as the griddle top on the firebox that is slightly sloped towards the drain in the back left corner which drains all the way out the bottom. I'm no welder, but have been around it enough to know what good welds look like and what "stacking dimes" means and the welds are flawless.

I've got the first fire burning in it now getting it ready to cook in which will probably be Memorial Day weekend.

Wow, that thing is beautiful! Congrats! I just don't think I'd have the patience to wait until Memorial day weekend to cook on it though!

Thank you, Kevin. When I retired 4+ years ago, I started a "part time" fishing guide service. Late winter, spring, and early summer are very busy times of the year for me and I'm primarily taking care of repeat customers. I fish 4-6 days a week, every week. But a friend has inquired about the possibility of me smoking him a butt for a children's charity event he's helping with so I'll find the time to make that happen within the next week. Guess they'll be the guinea pigs with the new smoker...:emoji_wink:. Then hopefully it'll be a throw down for Memorial Day for the family.
