Default My New Weapon

I have been looking for a 2nd smoker since I am running out of cooking space on the stickburner. The guy who built my offset had a great deal on this cabinet smoker and he offered to let me give it a test drive. I am going to cook on it next week but I fired her up yesterday and I am really liking it. 5-10 degree difference from top rack to bottom rack and its been holding temps really well. It has a 7 gallon built in water reservoir, but I was hoping to just run it dry. I wasn't sure if I needed to add sand or can I just leave a foil pan in there to collect grease? We will see how she cooks next week, but I think I already fell in love.





Invited some friends over to help fire up the pit....I really liked the Pliny Elder.

Who's the builder? Should get them added to the pit builders list, it's suspiciously devoid of CA-based builders.

His name is Rueben, lives in Victorville. He also built Norcorednecks trailer smoker. Great work at a great price. I was ready to drive to Texas for a BBQ until I found him.
