Every Man (and woman) has to name their Toy! Unlike automobiles that are always a girls name.......Smokers inheritely have Masculine names.

Being a retired Fire Officer, mine is appropriately named "Backfire". Also being born'd and raised from the South, with deep family roots in Florida and Georgia, I would have gone with "General Lee". But hey............that's just me! :twisted:

Chris,
It looks like a dandy! It is a wise smoking man that exits his stack from the bottom, or at least from the middle of the end opposite the firebox. I bet there's not more than a 5* difference in grate temp from one end to the other.

Jeff,
Mine's name is Betsy. Does that make me gay? (Not a very masculine name) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well........................it is better than Bruce. :shock:

By masculine, I did not necessarily mean just any Dudes name. Yours is the first Smoker (I'm aware of) that you couldn't drive, named Betsy. :lol: Most smoker names are related to the guys profession, hobbie or heritage.

I'll give you a pass, this time, Dickey!

Is your firebox made from a cast iron wood stove? I see what looks to be an ornate door on it. I have often considered cast iron, but figured I'd wait till mine burns out.

Gunslinger that is a cast iron door, its supposed to be from a 1939 boiler a friend bought it at a antique store and gave it to me for the smoker. That door is two pieces the whole center comes loose.

Very nice. It dresses it up and gives it a vintage feel. I love old.

When I can take another pic gunslinger Ill show you how it stands out better since I painted the center with a darker red metal flake paint and the old water pump mounted on the fire box along with the texas star Im mounting on the wood box. I keep adding here and there and its sure hard to keep it looking new.
