Ordered an Assassin Smoker
 
After speaking with and exchanging emails with Jeff Conley and Robin at C&C, I pulled the trigger yesterday and ordered an Assassin Smoker, the 24 inch model.

I'm looking forward to the new smoker. In the past I've cooked on bullet water smokers, NB Bandera, and now use an almost ten year old OK Joe stickburner and a 40 inch MES. I also have a P3 Broilmaster gasser that we use alot for steaks, burgers, and pork chops.

Jeff told me I would have a learning curve since I'm moving to a gravity feed from a stick burner. Of course I'm excited at the prospect of perhaps getting some sleep on all night brisket and pork butt smokes. Jeff said that smoking in an Assassin would take less time at the same temps as I'm used to on a stick burner.

Anyway, Jeff said it would take two weeks for him to build me an Assassin, and 3 or 4 days to get it to Houston from Macon. He said he'd share some tips with me about what he's learned smoking on these gravity fed cabinet smokers - that'll be good to get some help getting started.

I'll post the uncrating here upon it's arrival, and some pics of the inaugural smoke.

Thanks,
Treytexag

Good luck with the new smoker when you get it. Of course you know that time slows down when your waiting for something like that.

AWSCWI, have you cooked on your new to you Assassin yet? I'm looking forward to cooking on mine, I'm sure, weather allowing, I'll have a brisket on it on day one upon receipt.

Looks like yours is black, I think the one I have coming from Jeff is gray. I'm not particular on my colors, but I am hoping to be happy with the craftsmanship.

I'll post pics for sure.

Weather smeather. The elements don't mean a thing to an assassin..... Your guru might need a cover, however!

Been thinkin' and looking at awscwi's pictures, and you're absolutely right!! If it's raining, I'll roll her into the garage and run me a vent duct from the smoke stack to the outside. So I guess there'll be no excuses!! :-D

I have used it 3 out of four weekends so far. I holds temps very well. The smoke stack has served me well, although i would like a more permeant way to smoke inside. Hood Maybe?
I'm looking forward to sharing info on cooking styles with you guys...
