    Ok i smoke with a MES 30 and i love it, but it is limited  so I decided   to build a all in one smoker .


    It will be a RF and will have a cold smoke too , i took some idea from Rich(SQWIB)

    and from MAG409 and jumped in to it. my wife says i must be crazy that i lost it.

    i hope not. time and the smoke will says

    first part is self explanatory

    Looks good Ahron.  I don't have a pic right now, but my buddy took a piece of round tube, cut in half lengthwise,  and welded it over the damper rod.  He drilled a hole through the center of the tube and welded a nut to it.  I then added a handle to this so that you can move the damper anywhere you want and lock it down in that position.  I'll get a pic of this and post it up for you.

    Here is what I am talking about.
