I have been using a charbroiler grill smoker combo with a firebox for 5 years now, it is getting rough. I was given a air compressor tank last week and my mind has taken over. I want to build a smoker and get some experience in and build a kick A$$ smoker when I learn what I am doing. I have read all weekend and have an idea, that may or may not get me into trouble lol. I look forward to the advice, I have thick skin and can take criticism, but play devil's advocate to find the best solution that works for me. Glad I found this site as from what I have read there are killer builds and great advice from knowledgeable people.
