Many of you have asked me to post pics of my rig and I finally got my phone and my comptuter talking to each other, SO wish me luck! For those that do not know the story behind Puff, he was a Smoker built by my Uncle for my Father. My Uncle has built a number of homemade smokers for family and friends over the years and learned from each of his builds. Puff is the final iteration in his repertoire. When my father died, this Smoker was one of the few things I actually "wanted", well this and his Harley, but he made Mom promise not to give me the Harley! This is a picture of the "hot-plate" that forces the heat and smoke through the channel over to the Smoke chamber. And a picture without the Hot-plate installed when Puff is in "Grill mode". The handles on the sides raise and lower the coal level. This is a pic of the air intakes on the side and the removable lower ash-tray to make cleaning Puff out relatively simple. This is the beast with his mouth open wide! There are 4 racks total, each rack mounted on a swivel that swings out wide. This pic has two out and two in to show the swing action. This is a shot of the diffuser plate on the bottom of the smoke chamber. Rear-view showing the counter-weight system to help lift the firebox/grill lid. And a reverse view of the counter-weight with an old smoker in the background that has now been relegated to "wood warmer" for Puff. You can see the Gold-painted "grease bucket" hanging beneath the smoke chamber as well as the Drainage hole for use when cleaning him out. After going through these pics, it is obvious I need to sand Puff back down and give him a new coat, or 3, of paint! He has developped a lot of rust since my last Smoke. Hope you enjoyed the pics!
