    Fabricator by trade, from Wisconsin, mid 40's.  I enjoy family time, hunting, fishing, water skiing.

    My first build is more of a novelty type smoker build like a glock pistol.  about 500 inches of cooking space, offset firebox.  I've only used it a couple times.  It does work well, but you need to nurse it.  I'm still learning and hope to build a "real" smoker soon.  We've made parts for others building their own, but not our own yet.  I plan to sell the first glock, maybe build a couple more and build a couple to use myself at parties we have.  I'll try to add a couple pictures.

    Welcome to the board! You must have had fun figuring out how to make that.

    I knew a guy whose dad owned a company in Pewaukee, he could play a bit with the fabricating equipment and make little portable grills.

    Thanks all!  Yes, it was a fun build.  Gonna do an AR build in the future, but we also want ot make a "fully Functional" efficient smoker also.

    You've seen the 6-shooter versions, right?

    I have seen the six shooters.  Did not want to copy that, also looked like a lot of labor, real cool though.
