    Well, I ran into my office and opened the box today. It would appear to be very similiar to what people had anticipated about being fence post caps etc. But, he's done several neat cuts to this unit which allows it to be easily shut down. It also appears that he's done some sort of weld (maybe weld not sure what to call it) that keeps the screen firmly in place.

    I know that based upon the materials and time invested in this that he's not making much money. The workmanship is what I expected and I am pleased with the appearance of the unit.

    As I stated earlier, I will test it out this weekend and let everyone know what I think of the results.

    Me too! Good Luck!!
  5. I have used it smoke cheese, fish, beef jerky, pork, chicken. I haven’t made sausage lately but I plan on using it when I do. To answer another question it comes with a air valve to regulate air flow.
    I will be anxiously awaiting your critique also Griz.

    I can tell you one critique right out of the box. Because this unit will be going into a converted fridge, the nipple is not big enough to fully extend into the freezer. That's an easy fix on this end but it would be nice if maybe 2 sizes were included or simply allow a bit more thread so that the unit will sit closer to the appliance thereby allow further penetration.

    Installation tonight and pork butt tomorrow! Can hardly wait!

    I seen this on E-bay (I live there) and still think I'll be getting one soon. I will be using it only for jerky and cheese and things that just need a little heat. Yea it wouldn't be hard to make but why bother. And if you went and did all of the shopping to get the parts and put it all together, heck that's worth 40 bucks to me. As soon as I can find a trash can that's made out of metal, you'll be hearing from me. HHHHMMMmmm I wonder how fine the screen is ... "fence post bong." Heck now I may be selling something on E-Bay. Only kidding Bro.[​IMG]

    Actually, the screen is fairly porous. Any ashes should easily fall through the grate. The holes are not big enough for M&M's to fall through but tic tacs won't survive.

    Well, I thought I would give a review after thoroughly trying it out tomorrow but I can't. Evidently the vibration of the pump was just enticing enough to prompt my Golden Retriever to eat it! I had it running for about 2 hours and it worked quite well. Not heavy smoke and it most certainly had a slight blue tint! I will post more later!

    Howdy Skip,
    Not soon enough for my liking. The job sucks and my Texan wife is making my home life misery right now. God I miss Newport.

    Soumds like an interesting gizmo. I am curious about it's performance.

    Jimbo - I like the smoke-bong idea although I can't remeber for the life of me what one looked like .... I know I've seem one but CRS has struck again!
  17. The Smoke Daddy Meat Bong …. Hmmm I think I like that. Hey Griz did you get another pump.? I will be smoking the Thanksgiving Turkey today with the meat bong . I LIKE IT

    Looks like I've coined another name for the thing. But I'm still interested in the idea of bubbling the thin blue through water for temp control. Never heard of it being done before....
