New Smoker on board

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by maaak39, Jan 1, 2012.

  1. Hi everyone I started looking for a smoker and found you guys a few weeks ago and have looked around a little. I picked up a Char-broil offset smoker off of craigslist a couple of weeks ago and have been cleaning her up a bit and got her fired up for the firs time today. I did some of the mods i have found around here and any help will be appreciated and hopefully I can contribute as well. here are a couple of before and after pics. I still need a new front shelf for it as the other was burnt up a little.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
