Default New Assassin28

A couple of weeks ago I placed an order for a new Assassin28 gravity fed smoker from Assassin Smokers (aka C & C Manufacturing Inc.). After several months of research, I decided it was the best option for our needs. We had the smoker built to the same specifications that fellow Brethren, dobdabob put together for his Assassin28 build (if you haven't seen it, here a link to the thread with his video http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=167662). We are going to be using this smoker for competitions and catering, so a lot of the ideas he had for his build made sense to us.

Well today Robin from Assassin sent us a couple of these photos of the of how the build was going.



I shot of the air intake at the bottom of the chute.


Looks like the build is on schedule, and should arrive here in SoCal in a couple of weeks. And as many of other folks have posted on this forum, Robin and the folks at Assassin Smokers are so friendly and easy to work with. I had a ton of questions before I placed my order, and Robin took the time to answer everyone of them. Great people to work with. Can't wait to get this thing fired up with a whole lotta meat.

Got word from Robin at C & C Manufacturing Inc, that our new Assassin28 shipped to day. She attached a couple of pics of the new smoker before it was crated.





The smoker should arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Time to go shopping for some meat.

You will be were dreaming of briskets and ribs every night while waiting for Assassin to arrive.

I love my Assassin 24. All my cooks in it have been a success (ok, there was that one slab of ribs that I overlooked.)
