Default Done putting together the Dera'

Ok..that was fun. Straight forward to put together. I add a thermometer to the unit and spent an extra hour making a heat deflector from the downloads section ( a piece of 16ga and a jigsaw). I'll try to get it fired up in the next day or so.

I also discovered that my fire grates from the silver smoker fit perfect in this!! I cant wait to try it out.

Looks great! You might want to raise the charcoal grate another inch or so that you have more room for airflow. Now just fire her up!

I agree with Noah you need more air flow.I don't know if anyone else does this, but i only bend the end of the deflector by the door and let the back fit right up tight to the smoke chamber.

I third the comment on raising the fire grate especially if you will be using charcoal. I made mine out of expanded metal and flat steel and have it sitting on the bottom shelf bracket.

I need to make another baffle, I made mine out of aluminum flashing and it is sagging from use. Mine really looks bad compared to yours.

Default Jere's a song for this happy occaision

Like A Virgin

Written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly

I made it through the wilderness
Somehow I made it through
Didn't know how lost I was
Until I found you

I was beat incomplete
I'd been had, I was sad and blue
But you made me feel
Yeah, you made me feel
Shiny and new

Like a virgin
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
When your heart beats
Next to mine

Gonna give you all my love, boy
My fear is fading fast
Been saving it all for you
'Cause only love can last

You're so fine and you're mine
Make me strong, yeah you make me bold
Oh your love thawed out
Yeah, your love thawed out
What was scared and cold

Like a virgin
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
With your heartbeat
Next to mine

Oooh, oooh, oooh

You're so fine and you're mine
I'll be yours 'till the end of time
'Cause you made me feel
Yeah, you made me feel
I've nothing to hide

Like a virgin
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
With your heartbeat
Next to mine

Like a virgin, ooh, ooh
Like a virgin
Feels so good inside
When you hold me, and your heart beats, and you love me

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Ooh, baby
Can't you hear my heart beat
For the very first time?
