New guy!!

Post by Buffalo » February 5th, 2019, 6:17 pm

Hey guys! Another new guy here from south Carolina! Cant wait to dive in with you guys! Picked up this project smoker. It was an offset with 2 4" stacks. I picked it up on a deal I couldn't turn down. Added a plate to make a RF. The firebox is undersized according to most calculators. But she will be fun to learn on. I think joining this group was a bad idea. I haven't built a fire in big nasty yet and I'm already trying to decide if I want to build a 250 gallon smoker or bite the bullet and use the 500 gallon tank I have......

Welcome aboard. You could always build a new firebox for big nasty first then decide if you wanna tackle a new build today

Agree...fix that firebox first...that looks like a pretty good start. A 500gal is a tremendously big smoker and completely unnecessary for the bulk of us. If you need it tho, we are here to help.

Welcome!
