Default New Smoker (first one)

Well after doing BBQ and grilling for the last 5 years finally the stick burner bug bite me and I purchase smoker. I wanted something solid so I found this one that is 1/4" all around I figure it was good enough. I had to make a 3 hour trip to get it and when I inspected i noticed it did not had a draining tube, also the bottom grate was welded to it had not been clean for since new! (2 years). Anyways it was still a good buy so i got to work on it and because of my subdivision I had to reduce its size so my brother helped me weld the wheels and we also made new removable bottom grates and installed a 2" drain tube. After that i installed a port probe and got new tel-tru thermometers and also ended up giving it a new coat of paint. You can not see it on this pic but we made "lang" style locking handlers now along with some lavalock it closes very well and there is no smoke escape. Im very happy with it, and look forward to putting it to use...a LOT!

Looks like it should be a good smoker for you!

If you want to directly embed the pictures and not have links, just click the square that has mountains and a yellow background and then copy the direct link that imgur gives you for each individual picture

Good looking rig. By the way when I saw the meshed in patio in one of the pics I knew you had to be in Central Florida. My brother lives in Clermont and when I visited I was amazed at the number of patios like that

Spoiled yourself on your first smoker. Looks great, especially after the mods.
