    It's the 3405bgw from wallyworld. I added the two homemade dampers and put a flat 3/4" gasket around the door. The darn thing didn't come with any dambers at the bootom so I put one on each side to help the updraft since I saw a few with them.Next I will be adding the plug in the side I have seen others do to run the wires through. Already have it just need to get-r-done.

    These are the recipes everyone went crasy over. Use any kind of nuts I like almonds best. The first recipe is a big hit with everyone!

    Hot and Spicy Smoked Pecans

    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    2 cups pecan halves
    1 tablespoon chili powder

    Mix everything but the nuts and chilli powder in a bowl. When it's mixed well add nuts coating completely. Then add chilli powder. Put in tin foil pan and smoke for about 30 minutes. Stir them up every 10 minutes or so.

    Glazed Spiced Smoked Nuts Recipe

    1/3 cup sugar
    1/4 unsalted butter
    1/4 cup fresh orange juice (strained)
    1 1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/4 teaspoon ground mace
    1 pound unsalted mixed nuts

    Cook sugar, butter, orange juice, salt, cinnamon, cayenne and mace in heavy skillet over low heat until butter melts and sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium. Add nuts and toss until completely coated. Spread in single layer on a lightly pamed tin foil pan. Smoke 30 minutes stirring every 10 minutes. Then cook without smoke for another 30 minutes. Move nuts to sheet of tin foil to cool.

    Hot And Spicy Smoked Cajun Nut Mix

    1/4 cup Butter
    1 teaspoon Salt
    1 teaspoon Paprika
    1 teaspoon Red cayenne pepper (or to taste)
    1 teaspoon Garlic powder
    1 teaspoon Black pepper
    1 teaspoon Onion powder
    1 teaspoon White pepper
    8 ounces Walnuts
    8 ounces Pecans
    4 ounces almonds, Whole

    In a 3 quart sauce pan, over low heat, melt butter stir in paprika, garlic, and onion powders. Stir in black pepper, white pepper, salt and red pepper. Blend well. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in walnuts, pecans, and almonds. Mix well to coat. Spread nuts in a tin foil pan and smoke for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir nuts occasionally. Cook without smoke until nuts are golden brown. Remove from heat and cool.

    [​IMG] Deb, Thanks again for the fast response and reciepes the first one on the list sounds like a real winner.I hope my order get's here soon from Calif. so I can try these out.

    Looks like butter is a must to get seasoning to stick and may/will try a few of my own season varieties.

    Thanks again
