    Neighbor cut a orange tree down. Helped him cut it up. Said he needed it hauled off. Told him I would take care of it for him. Its drying in my shed. [​IMG]

    Score! I know poeple aren't supposed to move wood over long distances because of bugs (remember the Emerald Ash Borer?), but if some of that orange wood ends up stowing itself away in your trunk on your way back to MI, I'll help you get rid of it! lol jk [​IMG]

    Pool  [​IMG]   Beer BBQ [​IMG].  Sounds like a great idea.  Sign me up[​IMG].  Maybe start a thread for the get together and see if there's interest.

  13. Good idea Stan. We can get something started in the spring for a summer date.

    Let me know I have 20  8' tables, 160 chairs, 6  10x20 canopy's and two 8' ice tables plus a truck and trailer to get them to the PARTY!!

  15. Well that makes it easy!

    Come on spring!!!
  16. Hey, all...

    I met Shamp a few weeks ago at a mutual friend's house...turns out we live in the same subdivision.  Somehow the conversation turned to smoking meat, and he pointed me towards this site.  As it happens, we're both in the beginning stages of new smoker builds, so there's likely some cold beer and hot metal in our near future.  It's 7 degrees this morning, so it's much more smoker planning weather than smoking weather!

    Thought I'd say hi...looks like a fun and informative group!
  17. Just slap on a pair of Long Johns and Carharts Doodle.

    [​IMG] DoodleQ and you to Mr sunshine to the group and site.   This is a great place to learn and go broke.  [​IMG]   

  19. Mr. Sunshine...Carharts for me or the smoker? Actually one of the reasons I'm building a new one is I can't keep the heat in my double drum unit when it's like this.

    Handymanstan...thanks. Plenty to learn. One more thing to go broke with can't make that much of a difference!

    Picked up the trailer for my new rig build today. 14' x 6'4", double axle 12,000gvwr. I'll be building with a section of crude oil pipeline, so I thought more trailer would be better than less. Still not sure what diameter I'll make the cooking chamber, so layout ideas are still pretty tentative, but I'll be sure to have plenty of firebox overbuilt into it so occasional use in Michigan is at least theoretically practical!
    I'm thinking I'll try to accommodate an open grill, a propane cook pot, and wood box, and a bit of work surface...maybe a burner if the layout allows. Any unusual ideas anyone has that are worth considering?
  20. Whatever it takes DoodleQ

    Sounds like you have a tank in mind there.
