New in Colorado

  1. Hi to all. I am new to the Science of Smoking and this site is the reason my first smoke was a success! Smoked a fatty, ribs, shoulder and hot dogs. If you haven't smoked a hot dog you have to try it the kids went nuts for them! I got my smoker for free from a family friend. It was a horizontal barrel grill. Looks to be professionally made and I just converted it to a smoker by doing a few mods to it that I found on these forums. Lowered the charcoal tray to 7". Fabbed an air intake with a damper where the original bung screwed into the barrel top which is now on the side/bottom. Fabbed a smokestack from a piece of 3" pipe and built a damper for it as well. Cut out a section of the cooking surface so I could work the fire. Next up is designing an offset firebox and fabbing that up so I can use all the cook surface to smoke. Thanks to all.

    Welcome Matt. I lived in the Springs for 4 years before moving to the cess pool to the north. I really miss having the mountains within a 20 minute drive instead of at least 45 mins if I don't hit traffic. Anyway, great group of folks here and don't be shy about any questions you might have or anything you might contribute. No snobs on this board :)
