    have used many store bought smokers.

    Currently tweakin on a new project - Metal double door Storage cabinet 2ft deep 3ft wide by 6.5 tall.

    Got the firebox installed this weekend and did a test run and boy does this sukker put out some smoke.

    anyway i will upload pics of it when i can.

    glad to be part of this forum with all the nice people and info here its gonna be a good time for sure.

    Later,

    Ant

    Yes, I've been to the Tabasco factory "tour" and gift shop. All you see is part of the packing line but it's sill worth a visit if you're in the area.

    I remember how shocked I was long ago in college. Went to pick up a friend who happened to be my date at her parents home in Sunset. Of course she wasn't ready. Had it not been for her brother being home, I was in trouble. Her grandmere, Papa and Mom were in the kitchen having coffee and never passed a single work of english. I knew just enough French to dig my self into a hole. LOL Good Catholic family she graduated from Sacred Heart in Grand Coteau.

    But I musta done ok, they let me date daddy's little girl.

  13. hey guys here are photos of the smoker project - dont know internal temps yet since i've misplaced my termometers to install.

    also its not painted yet but ready for paint this weekend.

     i will say this though.. the smoker box on the back side was reading 400 degrees for over 4 hours with minimal adjusting and using regular charcoal and some fairly good seasoned oak on my first test run... i just needed to make sure it drafted correctly before i went any further...

    sorry if these images are in the wrong place but will post a build thread soon.





     
  14. Welcome to the forum. Lots of info here just for the asking, I live a little south of you in Gonzales. Quite a few members on the forum in the area.

    Very cool! I'm jealous of your work area too!
     
  16. thanks bauch,

    that is actually at my camp on the river. spend a lot of weekends there and absolutely love it. Me and a couple buddies are getting in to doing our own sausage. instead of having to use others equipment i figured since i have the space for an outdoor cook area we could just do it there instead. Rain or shine its smokin time!
