    I thought I should post a few pictures of my 500 gallon reverse flow smoker I recently finished building. I have a few cooks under my belt with thing now and I couldn't be happier! I love cooking on this thing it works perfectly and using a stick burner over my propane setup makes such better food it is not even in the same league.
    Here is the completed smoker before I moved it into the barn

    My first smoke was 2 huge Briskets and about 50lbs of pulled pork! I didn't get much of a Q view because I was worried about opening the doors to take pictures. Here are the Briskets

    Next smoke was some wicked beans and ribs and hot wing style chicken

    I made some ABT's the same day as well

    Gotta love having room for a lot of food!

    I am loving cooking on this stick burner! Everyone asks me if I wish it was not so big and to be honest it is just as easy to cook a couple chicken breasts on it as it is to use my Webber and much better flavor it only takes about 1/2 hour to get up to temp and I can cook 2lbs or 200lbs and it is fun to use.

    I have only used cherry wood so far and I love the color and flavor it has put into everything I have cooked with it.

    Thanks I used them on the door handles and vent handles also. 

    I figure after pulling the shoes off my horses why waist them?

    Nice smoker build! I agree that it is nice to have room to spread out.

    Smoker looks great. I'm starting on my smoker build. (2) 500 gallon side by side on a trailer. What brand and size thermometers did you use!
