Taking a break from work is good for one's sanity.
The food is looking good, should be a good feed.

Really like your smoker, would love to see more detailed pics of it.
Did you build it?

Hi Chilerelleno - Yes, I did build my smoker. I built the masonry part of it about 25 years ago. Where the wood is now, at that time I just made a couple boards to enclose the cook-box. Of course, those worked (kinda) and remained for 20 years. Then a few years ago I upgraded the cook-box with the wooden structures you see in the pictures. I also upgraded the fire-box door. Happy to share a few pictures if you are interested.

Okay, here come the pics! Pics show construction details. I'm happy to answer any specific questions. That last two show my little wood pre-burn tank - for firing up wood to put into the firebox in the middle of a cook - so that you don't get that thick white nasty smoke - works quite well!

You can see it in the picture with the firebox door open. It's just a fire-brick lined opening in the masonry maybe about 6"x6" and probably eight or ten inches long. It open low in the cook chamber under a bunch of 1/4" thick tuning plates for distributing the heat/smoke evenly in the cooking chamber. Seems to work well.

You've got lots of skill and talent, from building the smoker to smoking the food! Really cool!
