It would be nice if members would put their location in their profile it would looking at the pics make more sense.
I agree 100% it makes it easier trying to help people also.

Hey Robert, please explain your T-Cooker. I've seen several similar but is your's a reverse flow?
It is in fact reverse flow, and from both ends. There is a massive heat deflector plate over the opening between the fire box and the cook chamber. It is a piece of 8" diameter 1/2" thick steel pipe that is split lengthwise. It's about 6" shorter than the interior width of the cook chamber so the heat and smoke roll from both ends and you can maintain perfectly even cook temps end to end. What's really cool too is that you can adjust the temps end to end by sliding the deflector plate toward one end. You can literally damp one end down to 235 for ribs and have the other end at 275 for a brisket. Another neat feature is that the stacks are both higher than the top racks. This means you are running the same temps up top as you are on the lower grate so no having to move the meat around for even cooking.

Great backyard cooking setup. Which one do you use the most?
I use the Lynx grill the most, and not just for grilling. I also use it as an oven for baking bread, biscuits, pizzas, and things like that which would typically be cooked inside the house. The one I grill on the most is the Weber.

Some nice looking set ups, Robert I think I see just enough room for that wood fired pizza oven under there
Believe me Jerry, I've thought about it. We just don't eat pizza often enough to justify a dedicated pizza oven. I'm giving some serious consideration to putting a new Stump's Baby in the space you mentioned pretty soon though :emoji_wink:

I'm so embarrassed. I live in a trailer park and realize my smoking space actually looks like it too. You all are inspiring me to make my smoking space more like a refuge. I'll take some pics and share my mess with you all on Friday when I am off of work.

Please don't be embarrassed. This thread is about getting ideas and inspiration from others, not showing each other up. RiversideSmoker, I'll bet more tasty BBQ comes from mobil home parks than gated communities. Just a lawn chair in front of a WSM is a wonderful thing!

Wait til you see what's become of my OKJ. I keep meaning to give it a once over and then I just smoke on it. I guess I really do have to address that rust though lol. The kettle is looking good though. I'll definitely share my smokers paradise shots on Friday.

Do not feel that way ... you have no reason ... this is about the enjoyment of the pursuit and process of this hobby. If this was a beauty contest we’d all be DQ’d 🙈

Besides, the most beautiful pics posted are edible.

Some of you guys have really beautiful setups!

Perhaps someday,

My neighbor opens the garage door, rolls the Traegor out and starts cooking. It works really well for him because the garage is right off the kitchen. The only thing missing is a cold beer and a lawn chair. I also cooked on my driveway for many years. I enjoyed watching the neighborhood.
