  1. Hey guys, new to the forum here. Tons of great photos and information on here. Thanks for posting it, have learned a lot.

    I am kind of a hobbist and love to cook.

    Been making homemade wine about 7 years now and beer about 2.

    Smoking meat about 2 years

    Location: South Texas

    Smoker: New Braunfuels Bandera smoker

    Just refurbished my smoker, bought it on Craigslist for $50 :) but needed some work. Racks in the firebox were rusted out and broken. I welded some angle iron in the firebox to replace them and added a gas burner. Bottom rack and wheels were also beyond repair. New bottom frame was fabricated and wheels added. Stripped all the rust off of it and sprayed three heavy coats of Rust Oleum Bar B que paint on with a paint gun. It's better than new now!

    Still playing with the gas burner, not sure if I like it or not.

    I will add some pictures of it soon.

  13. Yeah, I experimented with it a little bit but decided to do the meat today using mesquite and charcoal. I probably need to get a good cast iron pot to put the wood in.
