    Here are pics of my new smoker. A charcoal Brinkmann that I converted to propane.

    Looks good, from the looks of your set up you're going to have a nice piece of pork for dinner.

    Here is an update on my first smoke.

    It's been about 3 hours and the temp is just hitting 150. I have been spritzing every hour with a Jim Beam and apple juice 3:1 mix since the two hour mark. Here are some more pics.

    Good job! Looks like you got it figgered out. Propane is a lot easier to keep the temps even with. Make sure you post Qview of the rest of the smoke[​IMG]

    That looks great for a first smoke. Impressive.
  7. LFR,

    I have the same smoker and modded to propane as well. I went one step further and mounted mine to an old grill frame I had. If you see one on the side of the may just want to pick it up. It sure makes tending to fire and meat much easier. I can also quickly and safely move it if a storm rolls in.

    Thanks Cowgirl,

    My son and I just had some pulled pork with Jeff's finishing sauce applied, then we added his BBQ Sauce. WOW! Some of the best pulled pork I've ever had.

    I'm gonna have to try this smoking thing again. Next time maybe some ribs or a nice Prime Rib. Can't forget smoked corn either.
