  1. I've read along on this site for quite awhile and finally built my smokehouse after viewing so many great smokers. Wow, there sure is a lot of talent in the USA!![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Looks great! How are you liking it?
     
  3. I like it, I see smoke, its doing the job.  What are we smoking? CF
     
  4. I works very well. I'm actually able to cook on the lower side after putting a heat diffuser over the heat outlet from the firebox. Of course, a custom job does not come with instructions so there has been a lot of tweaking. It cold smokes as fine as any other. The effort has been sealing it up just enough to cook without going through a cord of wood. Jerky was easy too. Highly recommend the firebox vented underground and the thick rough sawn whiteoak for siding, 1 1/8 thick, it's very well insulated.
     
  5. Smoking butts and chicken quarters but not at the same time. Butts are at 220 and the chicken will be around 300 once the pork is through. Wish I could post a video.
     
  6. Looks like a fantastic smoker to me, how did the first smoke go?
     
  7. Without a hitch. Dried 30 pounds of jerky followed up with butt and ribs. Ribs were cooked to hot, still very good just charred a bit. Fixed that with a heat diffuser and digital heat proves that read up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit. My old probes only read up to 212 f. I think I was getting up to 240 without knowing.
