    Bell owners: Please post any pros/cons, comments, pictures. There doesn't seem to be anything to find out there and I am desperate for info.

    Please respond and thanks in advance, Joe

    Thanks Red, they will build anything you want. I'm going for a custom backyard model. Have looked at their website, but not much build info there.

    Somewhere in a forum someone had referred to the Bell site and I visited. When I saw what they had, I thought it looked pretty good. I talked with Mr. Bell and he was very courteous. He seemed to know quite a lot about the operation and nuances of smokers. With all that, I still would like to speak with some owners who could shed some light on how they are pleased with their smokers or what they don't particularly like about them. Maybe some mods that have had to make.

    Thanks very much, Gary. As usual you're on top of things. I looked at the sites that you suggested and they were very helpful. They answered several of my questions and gave me a really good feeling.

    Thanks again, Joe

    I couldn't be more pleased with my Bell Fab custom made smoker.  100% custom made to my specs with all the modifications done as I instructed during fabrication.  Modeled after the Yoder Durango and the Horizon Ranger...all for about 1/2 the price of the Yoder.

    Can't recommend Craig Bell enough.  Custom built this for me based off the Yoder Durango and Horizon Ranger models...for about half the price.  Note that this included all the mods I asked for.  Once again, highly recommend Bell Fab.

    Congrats on that bad boy. I have a traditional horizontal that Craig made for me almost two years ago and I absolutely love it. Heats well, holds heat well, and cooks great food. Craig Bell puts out a quality product that needs more exposure. He is one of the best kept secrets in BBQ smoker fabrication.
