That is nice, and I can see a lot of thought went in to it. The temps seem great and enough space to cook for an army. Well done.

Wouldn't it be a lot more fuel efficient to have adjustable openings on either side of firebox into the barrels, so when you want to cook on one side, you can close off the other side at the firebox?

Or have one side of the firebox closeable, and always use the other side for smaller cooks?

Thanks alot all of you. As to having a way to block off the firebox from side to side when I close the damper on one side the tem guages on the shut side barely get over 100 deg. I am not loosing really any heat with one shut down. I just tested this today on my first cook with it. Worked like a champ. I can't believe how frugal it is with the wood. I have had it at 250 deg for about 9 hrs on less than a wheel barrow load of wood. Holds temp really well and adjusts quickly to any change you make. Really makes for an easy to use smoker.

I will be adding a blower to it in the near future as soon as I figure out how to configure the temp probes for two seperate cooking chambers. May take two seperate systems just connected to one blower. Not sure yet but I will figure it out soon.

@ Marty Leach- I will be putting casters on the bottom of it. LOL. It weighs about 400lbs I guess. My atv jack fits right under the firebox and I move it around easily for now.

This kind of stuff floors me. I can't imagine the amount of meat you'll be able to cook with that thing.

Came out very good great flavor and very juicy but I think I let it go a little too long. Should have pulled and wrapped at 160 and it was almost 175 when i pulled it. Oh well it was still very tender and very flavorfull. The Oak and Pecan were very mild but very good flavor.
