Howdy - newbie here, but been cookin for a bit, about 3 years on the serious side - just use a modified $50 bullet from home depot. I have a larger unit that I keep at my father-n-laws, but it is more for grillin than smokin. We have just moved to Northern Utah to help care for my father-n-law, moved out here from Tennessee. Am retired Army, 26 years, have a son who just made the SSG list currently doing his second tour in Iraq. Cancer survivor - had colon cancer, after major surgery and 6 months of chemo, been "in remission" a year come this December. I hear winters here are pretty brutal - does that mean that bullet style smoking is a "no go" for the winter months? I was thinking about setting it inside a large metal trash can or something as a windbreak - dunno open to all suggestions!I stumbled across this site looking for rib rubs - am totally stoked to be here!
