I just built the best looking off-set smoker and it makes awesome brisket. Best of all, it's right in the heart of the OC where nobody would claim to be a redneck. I tore apart an old double oven and turned it into the smoker. Got it for free off a construction site. Final cost with all materials was right around $100. I'm sure it increased my property value by $50,000. Check out the attached picture. Enjoy.

There's two that come out the front on top underneath the stone work. I'll take some pictures of the internal components and post them later this week.
I like to try different wood, but right now I'm using almond with mesquite lump coal. Great flavor on brisket and chicken.
Welcome aboard, Friend!

I must say that is one PRIMO setup! Looking forward to your posts!
All I can say besides the usual "Welcome to SMF" is SWEET!
Unique in SoCal? How 'bout unique anywhere!

Welcome to the board. Anyone with a creative mind like yours will most surely be an asset to the board!

BTW, what is that in the background on the left? It appears to be something made of stainless.
Very impressive stone work and looks very professional, Looks like a great place to be in So. California especially on Nov. 25th when Notre Dame comes to town. Smoke one for me! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
