    This is my first post ... about time!

    Live in south western Ontario and have 2 smokers, a vertical water and a horizontal with side fire-box. They are both modified to use an after market propane burner that I purchased from http://www.gassmoker.com/
    I would be happy to share my impressions of these conversions if anyone is interested. I should mention that I am very happy with them as well.

    Happy smokin' !

    Welcome Squeezy

    Always nice to find new smokers out there. We've got quite a few die hard Canadians here smoking through the cold.
    Thanks for shring the link. Looks very interesting!

    I certainly will post some pictures when we return to the lake ... around May.
    This burner is an inexpensive way to upgrade any low cost smoker and make you want to use it more!

    Squeezy -

    Does give me some ideas though. I have an ECB All-In-One that has a gas turkey frier bottom. I have so far only used the gas for starting my coals but now you have me thinking of wraping the bottom with aluminum flashing or something to keep the drafts out.

    Maybe I won't need to add charcoal as often.

    The best part of propane is the constant temperature and secondly, not using so much of that valuable hardwood. One 48 oz. juice can full will smoke for about 1 and half hours.

    Debi,
    You probably need to leave the bottom open for safety reasons.

    I was thinking I might build a collar around the ring to keep the wind out more. I don't actually use the propane (not sure why) just doesn't suit me I guess. Be alot easier than throwing a few charcoals on every hour or so.
