Hello from Southwest Louisiana

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by patcap, Aug 11, 2009.

  1. My name is Louis and I live in Southwest Louisiana. I been BBQing for some time and dabbled a little with smoke, but I wanted to have the ability to do more than throw some wood on my charcoal in my bbq pit as an afterthought, so I decided to have a smoker built. As we speak, I am seasoning the inside of it. Here's a photo:

    Looking forward to getting started!!

    Hello there, and welcome to the SMF. You've joined the best place on the planet to enjoy and discuss smoking food!

    Very nice smoker you have there, too.
  9. Welcome Louis , glad to have you here at SMF! You will like it here!
    I for one sure would like to see other images of your smoker! Inside and Out! Is it run on electric power? I see a wire coming towards it? I'm planning on taking a 250 gal propane tank and using as a slow smoker for hanging hams, fowl and sausage. Yours looks something that I see running in my head if you know what I mean?

  10. I'll take some additional photos. I was curing the inside at the time of the photos, so I couldn't do much else. The wire you see is a propane line. I use a modified propane burner and a homemade short stainless steel pot in which I put the wood. I believe it will work, but like I said I'm a newby to this. Learning is part of the fun. I'll get you some more photos soon.

    Welcome to the forum Patcap, nice looking smoker!
  16. I'm a big hog hunter (4 this year so far), so this smoker was designed and built with that very thing in mind!!!
