  1. Hi all SMF members,
    I am a complete beginner - meat smoking is not that popular down here, but with all the fantastic info on this forum one can't go wrong!
    I've used a stainless steel s/pool filter, which I hope I can use as bbq & smoker.
    I have arranged series of pullys & s/steel wire to lower or lift the fire grate by turning & locking at the required height. will be experimenting this week end!

    Cheers !

    Welcome Saffer. Ditto here on the pics. I want to see some wild game. Need pulleys when lowering in a water buffalo hind quarter?

    Welcome, the information on this site is great, you should be able to make some great smoked meats. [​IMG]

    If I understand correctly, you're converting a stainless steel sand filter into a smoker? Sounds like your going to put some time into it, take some pictures and post them once it's done.

    welcome to the SMF. Wow, the world gets small every day!!! A popular saying around here "The only stupid question is the one not asked." Need help, do a search. If you can't find the answer, ask away and you will get more answers than you ever imagined.
