    Good eye! It's a Miller 212. It makes me a better wekder than I really am!

    TJ - I will get some better pics up this weekend.

    That sounds interesting. I am not a 100% that my way will work but I am trying to do it with what I have on hand.

    Well I got her all done! I had to barrow a tractor to move it outside but still dont have it exactly where I want it to end up. Still I was anxious to get it seasoned so she was sprayed down with a coating of vegi oil and then fired up. It's obvious that she wont take much wood to keep up to temp. Thats a good thing if you ask me.

    here is a few pics of the burn out. The first one looks like a fire ball in the smoke box but its just the way the sun played on the smoke. ....

    first smoke in the morning.... I am so anxious I cant sleep! Here it is 12:30 and I am up surfing. We'll be going a couple of butts, a brisket and probably some chicken quarters towards the end. I will post the results
     
  8. ok...you've had 4 hours to sleep now get going on that thing so we can see some more Qview. What a piece of art!   Any mods you can think of just after seeing how the burn-in went?

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone..... just remember I am in Arizona so I'm a little behind ya'll in the mid west and east, it's only 7:45 :grilling_smilie:





    Not so far, it seems to hold temp perfectly. In fact I think the issue with this one will be keeping the temp down. It does look like I will need to start my fire in something else and move it to the fire box. I had temps quickly get to over 500 when I started the fire this AM. I dont want that kind of heat in the thing.

    The Smoker is working great. It's easy to maintain temp once a good bed of coals is built. The only thing I found that I need to do is add a plow disk under the bottom rack. I will put it with the dome up so that the drippings run off and into the bottom of the smoke box. Right now they are missing this drip pan and running down the outside of the fire box. It makes a mess. I need to get this done before I can paint it.
