  1. For the love of Smokin' this is wonderful.  I must say I've re 'kindled' (yes pun intended) my desire for smoking meat as I used to do this years ago.  Time and new position has afforded me the opportunity to get a 1/8" steel (homemade) OFB 28" smoker someone didn't want.  I've been reading the mods and have started in hopes to have seasoning completed this week so I can start with a beer can chicken and wet mop ribs. 

    I"ve been taking pics of the cleanup / mod and I will have questions.  I've really enjoyed reading the forums...

  19. Frosty,

    I posted the results, so far, in the Smoker forum.  Take a look to see the results.  From the looks of smoke coming out of the firebox i'll need to use some fiber rope around the door to create a better seal...
