Archuleta family reunion smoker

Post by bstory » June 2nd, 2018, 8:15 am

Thanks guys

For anyone that’s never made an ash pan, I highly recommend it. Very simple, but during a major cook is awesome.

Well that pic sucks lol. It’s just like one of the other racks slides out and all, but it’s a piece of 1/4” plate placed inside an angle iron frame.

Oh hell, almost finished, well at least enough to pull and cook. I have like wood storage and all the fancy stuff, but I can do that later. I just needed to get this thing mobile and cooking before my surgery scheduled for Wednesday.
I started this 3/25/18. Not too bad for a little over two months.

Well the smoker will smoke tomorrow or Friday. It just needs some cool touch handles and it’s finished. Need just a little more on the charcoal grill side
Just waiting on a shipment from Frank or some handles and such.

I bought the latch kit and it is really slick, but I was unable to get it to work because I made my racks just in the wrong position on the Cook chamber to where the interfered with the latching mechanism on the inside. So I made some latches on the outside and mad them all match on all doors. I am happy with how the smoker came out.

Just need to finish up the few small things and then do my secret work in the trailer. I have a great plan for storage and burners and stuff so stay tuned.

Dang this is the best smoker I have built yet. This thing is rocking and rolling it’s been at 525 for an hour without any more wood.
