Joining up from Canada

  1. Hey brothers!

    Checking in from Ontario out side of Hamilton Cambridge area just follow the smoke!

    True Canadian redneck
    Beer? Check
    Rye?? Hell yeah!
    Fishing, off roading, camping, kayaking,shooting, IPSC? yup

    Carnavorizum? Well yeah!

    Self taught smoker, all home build. I'm into fab so building isn't a problem.

    My progression of wood burners:

    Needed a larger smoker in a hour, two big racks would not fit on my old Q

    So a drum laying on my BBQ base fire brick lined Q racks on top and the redneck touch? Satilight dish lid lol!

    It worked!

    Ribs pulled forward to finish.

    Not the best for long smokes needs constant tending. But ribs and things? No prob.

    I made this beast up after.
    Alum tube base works quite well, propane starter. Had the idea the gas could be used for long smokes burning a log but temps didn't quite work.

    Two 3 1/2" pipes from the fire box up and one with a tractor flap damper out

    Now I want MORE

    I got this 30x60" fuel tank for a favour, I am thinking a RF, I also go an alum pan the full size of the tank
    Might use as the water tray. I want to make it removable so I can install charcoal grates to use the whole thing as a grill and another crazy idea to make it a stone- wood fired pizza oven. But I digress.

    Found the site when looking for smoker calculator help take some of the error out of trial and error:)

    I'll be around
