Hey guys, been lurking here for quite awhile thought I'd do some posting. Been smoking for quite awhile, I have for the past 10 years been using small brinkmanns and a cardboard box---I know hoborific right? Done mostly turkeys and briskets in them, Now I want to start cold smoking some cheese and I've been wanting a bigger smoker it appears I always get nominated to do the cooking when events come around so I'm sure an RF trailer mounted smoker is in my furture. Little more about me, Work/restore VW's, was hardcore aircooled now turned watercooled....vanagons are my specialty or any early watercooled vw. What got me in to grilling/smoking was the lack of places to eat good cooked meats in the northwest, we finally got a texas roadhouse they are pretty tasty but still don't compare to some good hole in the wall bbq down south. I'm currently looking at MES but toying on building my own, I own pretty much any metal working tool you can think of, mig/tig/arc/plasma/tube bender/metal brake.
