Me and Tyler built this cooker for the guy who is going to do our website, we worked long hours this week so he could get the cooker for memorial day weekend and he was able to pick it up Saturday. He was totally happy and that made us happy!!!!!

The cook chamber is 24" diameter by 60" long the firebox and warmer added another few inches to the cooker. I was going to post pics this weekend but Sharon took off to Ohio with the camera to see the new grandbaby. Imagine that!!!!!! Just to update people Sharon has one more chemo treatment, then surgery, then 5 weeks of radiation 5 days a week. She is doing great and thanks for all the prayers from across the nation not one has gone unanswered!!!!

here are a few pics

Again all of our doors go into sub frames of angle iron

The cooker has squared off doors.... it is quiet a bit more work but you have quiet a bit more room for meat also. going back building regular doors will be a walk in the park

frame to accept doors and Tyler putting on gaskets. Are gaskets necessary on this cooker prolly not but we added them. I know this for a fact heat and smoke are going to take the path of least resistence and that is out the stack if it is setup right for the right draft.

That is me TQ spraying the cooker

Notice the cooker was sandblasted inside and out, not many people do that I assure you

Tyler left for a cabin on yellow creek, and dad was left painting. It is a pain in the rear to paint 2 colors because you have to paint them separate. I told Tyler we are going to come up with a easier softer way. Prolly weld the legs on the cooker then bolt down that way there will be no touch up work for dad

Great job, as usual. You and Tyler do solid work. Glad to hear your wife is doing good. Do you think it was a coincidence that Tyler went to a cabin, before it was time to paint?

I noticed a sign on the way to work this morning at a local church that read
"Todays forecast" "God will reign and the Son will shine". My deepest Prayers are with you and your wife..

I posted a link to my build today on Q-talk (60 gallon offset smoker build) but you guys take the cake and make it look so easy and flawless.

First thing you did an excellent job on your build, it is something to be very proud of. I know you can't wait to have some Q coming off of it!!!

Thanks sooooo much for the encouragement and prayers. We really appreciate and need that!!!!!! And thanks for the nice wordas about our builds. TQ

Thanks for the prayers. It is my fault the site is not online yet due to my lack of computer skills. I am going to get content and pics to the guy this week we just did our part by building him a cooker. We also just got a couple builds today just by word of mouth. Some may be skeptical due to the fact that we are not totally established. But we do have our license and insurance and have for a coup[le of years. I hope the quality of our work will speak for itself and we are going to have plenty of testimonials to back us up. Hopefully it is going to be a nice site it certainly is not a cheap one for sure. We hope to provide a first class product at a reasonable price money is not easy to come by and people certainly deserve a good product when they are spending their hard earned money
