    My neighbors moved and gave me their old Brinkmann offset smoker. I cleaned it up, used bbq paint and installed the dryer hose to help with keeping the smoke cool. I used nomex gasket around the firebox and sealed up all the cracks I could see while the Smokin Wedgie was going. Took me a bit to get the draft dialed in but I think I have it now. I will be doing 19# of bacon next week so we shall see how it works.

    what's your plan with this? looks cool, but to me it seems like it's more of a type of reverse flow smoker now and it wouldn't likely be cooling the smoke since it's run is in the food chamber.

    i love making bacon... I used to use a hot plate, a pan, and wood chips and add a tray of ice if it was over 80 outside. I've recently bought an AMNPS and i'm pretty impressed with it... i'm getting a 10-12* increase above ambient temps with it on it's own and with ice i can actually be cooler than ambient temps.

    I use a smoking wedgie, similar to an amazn tube. If you look close you can see it in the fire box. There will not be any "fire" in the box, just smoldering pellets.

    looking great... my wife doesn't eat bacon so i have to make it one belly at a time... i wish i could make it more in bulk like this. my kids can easily eat over a pd on the weekend themselves.

    Looking good!  I'm jealous, still too hot here for bacon or any other cold smokes.   It's 110 degrees in my pit right now, and that's just from the sun hitting it!

    Looking forward to your finished shots.

    That looks really good. How long did you smoke it for?
