Talking My first true smoker!

After much research, especially on this awesome site, I decided to pull the trigger on a Pitmaker Safe. I placed the order back in early April and just picked it up yesterday just in time for Memorial Weekend. Here are a few pictures of my new toy!


At Pitmaker shop in Humble, Texas....I did the ball valve's for air intakes thanks to the tips on this site!


Pitmaker has a nice size shop....back view for my fellow Spurs fans


My first cook would have to be in the rain


This pic is about 3 hours into the cook. I am able to maintain pit at a range of 250 to 275 fairly easy with the valve controls. More PRon to come from my new toy!
Thanks for looking!

I can't be any more jealous!!! That's exactly the smoker I want!

Be sure to let us know how she goes! I'm trying to decide if mine will be of my beloved Stillers or maybe something a bit more nerdy before I'm too old to admit it.
