Greetings! Looks like I found the place to get started! Currently I live in Omaha Nebraska, been here about half my life and I'll be 29 in a couple months. My father is a chef and a hunter so I've grown up on tasty smoked morsels of various juicy animals. My friend that is finishing his welding degree just dropped this little guy off today... Even got the fire department called on myself for the first time, no joke! Needless to say that the guys in the firetruck were disappointed when I told them there was no meat in the smoker, they were also grateful that there was no 'uncontrolled fire'. You can say that I'm a happy camper. We fired it up this evening to break it in/ season everything since it is brand spanking new. There are also a few little things that need to be buttoned up. Apoligies for the bad picture, I'll be getting some better ones this saturday when we get her in business. It's a little hard to see, it's a two barreled double-damper design with two smokestacks. With just dry hickory and charcoal earlier I was able to maintain any temperature I wanted between 200-400 degrees very easily. With both dampers closed and the fire raging in the bottom barrel It would barely get above 180 in the top barrel. I'm thinking this will be a pretty good design and cant wait to try out my new custom smoker this weekend! One thing I am having a bit of an issue with is the amount of smoke lost from the door itself when it's closed. Being that it's made from a barrel of the same size it fits nicely but there isn't much of seal. Not a huge issue, but I would like as much of the smoke as possible to stay in the smoker or leave through the stacks... I'm not sure, but I think I remember seeing something at Home Depot that was like a silicon weather stripping for BBQ Smokers that would not melt and would seal up a door. I've also heard of using silicon tubing as well. But have not found much yet in searching for a solution. Anywho, it's good to be here!
