Well killed a quick couple limits of ducks and decided to play with the smoker. First off I've relized this Might be a bigger project than first thought. None of the doors are square. Needs a bit more tlc also. Here's some pictures of the ends and the HUGE chamber hole.
I fired it up today with 1 full chimney of briquettes. With three evenly spaced thermometers I'm at starting closes to fire box 400f, 275f, 300f, that's with the smoke stack 1/2 open and the fire vent closed. Since I fired it I'm gonna give a run with my first fatty right now. Updates soon!
