    Just a while back somebody stole my smoker, thus, resorting to primitive ways to still enjoy the food!

    Gathering parts for the new smoker as we speak. Just going to take a bit of time to build what I want.

    I have a charcoal horizontal grill with smoke box, so start em in the oven, brown them up on high heat, then over to the cool side for some smoke then sauce then belly![​IMG] Here goes that slobbering thing again!

    Building an extra heavy duty electric this time. My old one was gas, but the new one will be living in my shop, so wan't the electric. Will have cold smoke and hot smoke features and am thinking about remote smoke generator to boot. Will see as things progess into the build phase. Been buying parts each week.

    Using an old enamel lined early 50's refrigerator I picked up for free. Pulled all the freon components out earlier and the freezer compartment/coil was removable so I gained all the interior space that way. Going to hopefully get started on the build next weekend if the weather straigten's out a bit, to cold to work in the shop this weekend, really need to get that wood furnace installed this summer![​IMG]

    Here is some q-view of my ribs on my grill/smoker. These won't be as good as if they were done in a true smoker, but they are looking mighty tastey![​IMG]

    Kinda tough conditions to work in today, the wind is blowing about 25 MPH!

    More q-view to come as things progess!
