while Im was looking around I ran acrossed a stainless steel smoker project that someome was working on it is about 2/3 the size of a gosm it was all but finished (a hole in the bottom the size of a coffee can,above that a stand with a tray for the wood and a water pan ,it also has a rack with shelves 4 of them all in one piece and a lid with a vent with a slide to open this hole it about 2 inches.) now this all loads from the top . I am thinking that the sideburner from a grill would work nicely in the hole in the bottom to make it a gas smoker or a hot plate for an electric. (all the above parts are stainless steel and I would have to drill and bolt the burner in .any suggestions would be appreciated. got it for 20 bucks

I also have Vista. To resize pic's with Vista I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager. If that is not available to you, you can also resize them at ImageShack or any other image hosting website. I hope this helps.

Richard the first post tells how it goes together. it all just loads from the top. the hole in the bottom I think I will put a side burner off a grill and make it a gas unit.

Well I put in the side burner from an old grill and thought I would fire it up to see how it worked drilled a small hole and stuck a thermometer in it it went to 290 and leveled out no water in pan and I got smoke but that was as low as I could get it with out shutting off the flame . there is a hole in the top about 2 in. and a gap around the burner about 1 inch Do I need more vent top or bottom and I am thinking about cutting the front off and making a door so it is not a top loader

I would say a top vent would definitely help, but you might also have some luck bringing the flame down by adjusting the valve on the propane tank itself. You can also look for a different regulator.

When you think about it....the addition of a water pan, load of meat and smoke box might just be enough to get you down to 250 - then again it might not.

Only one way to tell.......trial by "Q" .....
