    All I got is a Masterbuilt Smoker.  Nothin' fancy, but gets the job done for now.  I'm wanting to make a rotisserie style smoker, so I'm anxious to look at everyone elses builds.  I also have a smoking pistol, that I use for cold smoking.  One thing I did get a few years ago, that I love playing with during the summer is a la caja china.  I use the smoking pistol for that too, and I roasted my first whole pig last summer.... That was cool, and everyone loved it!!

    I got a question... Every year I put on a Labor Day weekend party, and they always have a different theme for what kind of food I make.  This year it's going to be a Mardi Gras party, so has anyone smoked or roasted Alligator legs?  Thought that might be kinda cool.

    great site by the way
