Hope everyone is having a great thanksgiving. Today I would like to unveil a little project I started in the spring and had to put off for a few months. We put in a new patio (1500 sq ft) with a gazebo and monstrous outdoor fireplace. Needless to say I just didn’t have time to finish this project. A month ago I tossed my old master forge propane smoker that I was limping along and was actually becoming on the verge of dangerous. I figured if I tossed it it would force me to finish this for thanksgiving. I tested and seasoned it a few times this week to get an idea of how it would work. I decided that I learned enough about it to make today’s bird the maiden voyage. I will post more pics and information in a separate thread when I have some time and link it here.

I'm assuming it's propane fired since it's under the propane category .. Nice looking smoker...

Can I ask if you made it "fail-safe"

Good deal... I've seen it happen before where the flame went out and just kept pumping raw gas into the smoker... essentially make'n it a bomb if it were to get some ignition source ...

I work for a propane company. It costs me nothing to run this. Lol.

This thing holds temp great! I can raise and lower it very easily. Got it up to 325* I’m sure I could go higher. I backed it down as the turkey is ahead of schedule.
