    I want to put the vents and ball valve in before the burn. Any thing else I should do before the burn.
     
  2. I would put in what ever you are going to use to hold the racks. Buy some beer. start the fire and take some pics.

    No you don't....only drill the holes and then burn.  You don't want the ball valves in there while you're doing the burn.

    Going to use bolts to hold racks, do I have to use ss if I do the burn after I install the bolts.


    You guys are being a great help.

    Thanks
     
  6. Don't get coated bolts.I bead blasted mine. If you get coated bolts you can us (>>>muretic<<< I don't think this is spelled right. spell check couldn't find it) acid to remove the zinc coating, If the bolts are black. that is fine. SS is fine but cost more.

    IMO acorn nuts look good on the outside. 
     
  10. Why didn't I think of that? I could powder coat them Chevy Orange. I even have some of that powder.HMMMMMMMMM. I need some acorns.

    I put my bolts in the other way Bolt head out. I'm liking the idea.

    Will green wood work? Have bunch of green limbs.
     
  14. You need to load up that barrel  Run by Indiana and pick up FWI Head south to Ark-N-Saw. We could whip this thing out in a day. Have a[​IMG]

    and make some Q[​IMG].

    Happy smoken.

  15. for the burn out green will work great. If you can make it burn.

    I wouldn't season it with green wood. It might not hurt.

    But i wouldn't do it.

    For first smoke i would do a spatchcock chicken. Cheap/ Will handle temp swings/ and tasty

    i'd find some scrap lumber...doesn't matter if there's nails in it.   Pallets are ideal, i'd go by a shopping center, drive around back until you spot some and ask to take them off of their hands....BigLots freely gave me theirs.
