    Well I was able to get my new smoker hauled home this weekend I took her for a test drive yesterday. It worked great! The temps were really easy to keep low actually I will have no problem smoking cheese even when using my turkey fryer burner. With the needle valve not even used and the turkey burner turned way down as low as I can get it I can keep it under 200 degrees in the smoker. Today I am smoking two fatty's, some eggs and a stuffed pork loin. I need to get cracking on those but my ambition is pretty low as I look at the thermometer and it says -10 outside. I will get some pics put up of the smoke today. We made some really cheap quick fatty pistons yesterday I will let you know how they work out.

    That's a nice bit of woodworking there! By all means let us know how it works out. I'll be heading home to MO soon and have a wood shop also and was thinking about a smoker I can build and put in my garage (vented of course) for those really cold MO winters.

    With all the insulation it seems to hold temp perfectly. At least in the cold weather. It will be interesting to see what she does in the warmer temps.

    All looks very nice and well crafted like I said before. The fattie piston is really nice and I'm sure it will work just fine.
