    They look much better then the Lions! Anybody good in the draft this year?

    Leonard Faurnette from LSU but he's not eligible for the draft. They could use a running back. Or just move to Toronto and put us Michiganders out of our misery.

    Thankyou! Waiting for the rest of the folks and I'll have some after pics. Smoker cruises at 250. What a difference thick metal makes.

    . All in all it went really well!! Beef ribs were a little over done waiting on the rest of the company. Country ribs were awesome though! We also cooked some venison loin a venison roast, poppers and some fresh goose wrapped in bacon. What a way to break in a new smoker. Oh and 8 chicken legs too.

    Thanks for the points! Yesterday was a culmination of 2 years of thinking and planning and collecting materials. And by the way for everyone who gave me advice building my smoker thankyou so very much. It wouldn't have worked so well if it wasn't for all of your guys help so thank you very much. It was a real fun day. Thankyou.
