Hi All, I,ve been lurking for a while learning from the Brethren. I decided to break in the father's day gift with bb's and a fatty!

Rubbed the ribs yesterday. Loaded the smoker at 1130 with mesquite.

I know...I'm a gasser! :-D

Yes I have mesquite wood. That's all I had.

Looks like it's coming along nicely.

Just get an old coffee can, poke a couple of small holes in it, fill with some wood chips and lay it sideways over the burner, don't put the meat on until you've burned the paint off the can.

One thing I'm noticing is that I lose a lot of smoke around the door. It doesn't have a very good seal.

At least you're not boiling them! :rolleyes:

Everything looks good!

It all looks good so far. I have heard that a lot of those units leak around the door, you might look into some high temp silicone and fiberglass tubing to seal it up. Although, does that unit have a chimney? Maybe the door is supposed to leak?
