    Several have asked to see my new smoker so I'll post a few pictures. These were taken when we picked it up at Gator. Since getting home I've been playing catch-up and haven't had time to turn around twice. I hope to spend some time with it this weekend but have several briskets to cook. Anyway, here's a peek:

    I just re-read my original post and realized that I may not have been clear about the briskets. I have 7 briskets to cook this weekend but unfortuantely the Liberator hasn't been seasoned or tuned yet so I will be cooking the briskets in the GOSM's. Hopefully I'll have time to fire up the beast and get it started on its journey down the smoky trail.

    Well the brisket count upped to 8 because my wife wanted one too. :D The GOSM's are puffing away since 0900.

    Got the Liberator all oiled up and smokin' away since noon. Just put the tuning plates back in and will try to do some adjusting after a while. Been taking HIGH resolution pictures today. Here are a few that have been shrunk down to fit in your monitor [​IMG] :

    Thanks Scott.

    I have it seasoned and believe it is tuned pretty close. It's been a long day with 3 smokers running simultaneously but it’s been fun. :D
