    Thanks WD! I like to put my little design "twist" on things if I have a chance. Some times things just turn out the way they need to when you get your parts from the dump.:picard:

    A little, Franks has a bit more vinegar taste to it. I'm a franks fan but I used to eat Texas Pete on my scrambled eggs in the morning aboard ship in the Navy and the USCG!

    So I just read the whole thing. Man oh man, am I hungry for smoked food. All I have is 2 low rent charcoal grills kicking around here. And no way they'd hold the heat with our weather.:(

    I have not tried, but I thought that it would be real hard to hold the heat in these temps no matter the heat source? I have read about guy's insulating some of the fancier/bigger builds.

    about the same heat. Pete's has less of a vinegar hit to it than Frank's

    We like SBR here too but not sure if we'd like it sweeter.. Can always adjust the recipe to taste.. I have compiled many recipes mostly from the "Smoking Ribs" email newsletter.. I paste the recipes into word and clean out all the ads and hyperlinks, change the font etc.

    I have a big asbestos blanket that I might be able to wrap the smoker in for a try, maybe a short chicken smoke. Now I'm thinking that I could rig a smoke pipe through an open window in my heated shop and to he!! with the asbestos and the chicken, hello piggy!:thumbs:

    Might want to use fiberglass or foam rather than asbestos or better yet venting smoke outdoors.. Could probably just use flexible dryer duct..
