Post your cookers!

I figure it would be fun to see what everyone does the deed with here (referring to grilling/smoking of course). Right now I am working off a char-broil barrel style grill picked up from Lowes or HD (can't remember). It doesn't have an offset fire box as of yet, but Christmas is coming!



So, what do you cook with?

here's mine, I picked it up at a garage sale for 20 bucks and with a few modifications it works really well and the temp is fairly easy to control

Re: Post your cookers!

For BBQ, I have a UDS that I built and also a Webber. Nothing special but it makes some good food!





I have my eye on a Big Green Egg.

I put my hands on one and sent it thru the paces. The only issue I had was the ash dump. It was difficult to handle because of the location, other than that, seemed like a pretty cool deal.

Re: Post your cookers!

This is my smoker that I am building. The 2 top racks get hot and the bottom 2 do not get as hot. Someone said to put pipe on ea. side of the firebox so that it will go underneath the bottom racks. Will this work or does someone have an idea?

Homemade smoker

I have this smoker that I need some advice. The 2 top racks are hot and the bottom 2 are not as hot, which makes it uneven cooking. Someone said to add a pipe on ea. side of the firebox and pipe it into the smoke chamber underneath the 2 bottom racks. Will this work, or does someone have a better idea?

I need a smoker. Using a Weber Genesis that I hooked up to the gas in the house (which I highly recommend).

Re: Post your cookers!

My lazy-mode smoker is a MES 40 electric. I use that + AMNPS. I can fit 3-4 10-12lb brisket on it. It works like a champ. One day I'd love to have a true reverse-flow smoker, but I don't have the extra $$$ sitting around for it.

Back a cpl yrs ago when I was 1st seasoning it.

Nice rig. I'm using a MES 30, also with an AMNPS. They really work well together!

Ditto, what Alex said. I bought my gasser after going through a couple no name brands and it is a good unit, then I started to read BBQ forums and everyone was using charcoal like my dad did so I ventured out and picked up a Performer off of CL . If I was going to go coal I wanted a good one, and now I am hooked the gasser doses veggies, bread, and stuff . So after getting deeper into coal I started reading again and was interested in this smoker thing so I was given a Brinkman that was close to dead but one cook on it and I could see the light and taste, so Off to CL and found me a WSM now I have one of each and very happy and cooking all the time.

Re: Post your cookers!

I just got my Old Country Pecos Offset.





Not a cheap offset, but not an expensive one either, so I would call it a medium...

It's all welded construction, it already has a baffle for the firebox, the chimney is located at the right spot as well. The only mod I may have to do is add some hi-heat (Big Green Egg) insulator tape along the doors to seal it up real good. It leaks smoke, but not terribly like some others I've seen.

First cook!
