I'm new to smoking, but been enjoying cooking/grilling for a long time, and after reading all the good the bad and the ugly, I decided I wanted to take a stab at smoking some meat all the way through, until now I've used a propane grill and "dressed up" a shoulder to roast it in the oven. I really like the idea of a propane smoker, mostly because I the art of charcoal is more like labor, and I've sworn it off except for when we grill at the local pavillion (yes I'm lazy), I also liked the idea of a project to play with. (i like to tinker, and figuring things out. so keeping that in mind, I bought the Home Depot $59 dollar Brinkmann with the dual doors (because I hoped the center bar would help keep the door problems to a minimum) Since I've been married I've been denied the use of my turkey fryer($60 dollars in oil to cook a $30 turkey, she wasn't biting), and I use the side burner on the grill to steam crabs and shrimp, so the burner from the fryer got an inspection and a new lease on life. this is where the hookup is now, to be fair when I thought of this, I looked and this person had already done it, which encouraged my attempt to save more than a few bucks. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ead.php?t=1714 if your doors don't stay closed, try bending the bottom of the tab just below the middle using pliers, this doesn't effect the way it closes, but it does give it a lip for the spring loaded handle to pull to a stop on, a picture of how I did mine P.S. NO, I won't be firing it up in the house, but I was up and bored early this morning so assembly happened inside so I'd have lots of light. I'm going to season it tomorrow, but unfortunately I won't be able to fire it up and cook for about 2 weeks due to my work schedule, but I'll make sure we take pics! thanks for looking!
