I had an Aunt Gertrude. She was big and loud and smoked and loved a good party.
Very Fitting! :-D

She was in horrible shape. I mean for a big ol smoker I kinda liked it..but kinda unappealing for the public. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/85634/not-your-every-day-smoked-pork-spare-ribs/photos/80773/

I can manipulate temp and heat zones by simply moving the fire forward tor to the rear..the long fire box does look odd..but I have learned that it served a purpose
