We threw a birthday party for my 3 year old today but it was some Chinese food and a heavy dosage of pho. After the clean up, I just felt like burning some splits. Trying to do the no-grate thing and run my fire directly on my 1/4” ash pans.

I heard things sizzling so the logs are definitely water logged from last week’s rain.

So did you cook anything or just burn wood because you like the smell?

Because I was supposed to be watching my toddlers but was welding while they were glued to Trolls. In my haste I forgot what the hell I was doing and just welded things on.

We’re currently clearing things out before our winter trip so the no leftover rule is in effect. I have nothing in the fridge worth throwing into the smoker. Oddly enough it doesn’t smell as good as when there’s meat cooking.

Interesting smoker. Looks like 2 banderas welded together, or 1 extended. Got any more pics. I ask because I'm looking at building an offset vertical.

It's two Bandera's back to back.. Here's the build thread:

If I know what I do now about welding... I would have completely made my own and not have the Bandera but having it saved me a few hundred dollars in steel.

Haha Czar!

I can totally relate to my BBQ and gear getting side tracked because of little ones. As soon as I run to put a split on the fire, the kids start fighting and doing silly stuff.

In any case, I've learned to have them stand behind a gate and now just have them watch me tend to my cookers--life is SO much better now.
