Default My Reverse Flow Gun Safe Smoker

Still needs the final sandblasting and paint. And old gun safe, an air
compressor tank, and an old boat trailer has made for a whole bunch of fun. It was an interesting build, and cooks really well. I'll try to post some pictures of the build. I am impressed at how clean it burns, in one of these pictures during testing, it is smoothly running at 235.

The fire box is the round on the right, It was an old air compressor tank that one of the guys had in the backyard using it as a grill.

I am please with the smoke distribution, does really well. Generally have a ten degree heat difference from left to right. Here is a shot of a little untrimmed 6 ponder that I threw in for the first test run. The spareribs were part of the second test run.

Very cool! Faked me out with the fire box, thought that was the smoker and the rest a warming box. Bet that re-purposed gun safe make a great cooker (you did remove all the ammo, right)?

I was concerned that it was too thin, but actually works great.
