Oh my that's beautiful! Hmmm, my long-term plan was to get a Backwoods shipped over late next year, but this is making me think again!

I have a 24....the slam latch is really nice if your hands or full....the manual latches just compress the gasket a little bit more so you get a tight seal.

Well I was able to get the Assassin (now lovingly called "Big Red") fired up and seasoned. Here are some of the pics.

Wiping out all of the dust and residue from manufacturing.




Sprayed vegetable oil on all of the bare metal surfaces on the door, racks, and inner smoker walls.

A full 20lb bag of Kingsford Blue down the chute. KB is what I had on hand, I will most likely cook with lump once I get through my KB inventory.


As you can see there is still roughly 6 to 8 inches left in the chute after a 20lb bag.

I don't have a weed burner yet, and was planning on starting the fire off in a charcoal chimney and put it in the chute followed by the unlit charcoal. But last night my cousin and his friend stopped by to see the toy, and he suggested trying to use a couple of Weber lighter cubes set on top of a brick in the ash tray. So I figured I would give it a try.





It worked like a charm. Once the lighter cubes were spent I just removed the brick, and closed the fire box.


Once the smoker was up to temp. I threw in several chunks of peach and pecan wood for the smoke.

I used a full size disposable pan to catch the grease.


A picture of the inside after 3 hours at 350 degrees.




The remnants of the wood chunks. I threw in 2 chunks of oak about an hour and half into the seasoning.


I tried to take a video of the process, but the battery was dead on the video camera. DOH!

Tomorrow I plan on doing a small cook. Haven't decided what it will be yet, but whatever it is I'll take some more pics and post them. Thanks for looking.

Love that you can use disposable trays for the grease.
