    Hey all, I started this build last winter, had it functional a while back but just finally got a coat of paint on it and want to show it off!

    Here's a before pic


    And after!


    Used rustoleum ultra high heat semi gloss, seemed like my best bet in black, plus it was either this which is good to 1200degF or engine enamel good to 400degF and I didn't want to take a chance on the 400 especially since it was the same price. Oh and in case your wondering, I named the smoker the USM or Ugly Smokey Mountain because I took Ideas from UDS's and WSM's to do this build. Details on the build are here  This smokin' machine is ready to rock this summer! Thanks for looking!

    No problem Dave. Thanks for the kind words everyone, I'm pretty proud of this build. It works better than I even could have expected and holds temp for hours and hours and hours.

    Hmmm... caught you off guard there Dave ,LOL.

    Good job on the Smoker Berninga, that should last a season or two now  , Eh?[​IMG]

    What are you using for fuel? That would be superb using the 'pre-burn' method , and no Petroleum taste...

    Have fun and...
