With "Great sadness" Old smoker #5 finally gave up the Ghost! The bottom fell out of it last week and I had to haul it off to the great bone yard in the sky. That was the 5th one I made exactly like the last 3 and the 1st wasn't bad but I made improvements on the rest. It smoked and cooked for about 8+ years now, Many Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners cooked on it, She served me well. My wife and I were discussing smoking a pork butt this weekend, about two weeks ago and when out, I opened it and saw the bottom had mostly rusted/fell through. So, somehow there is a silver lining to this story and God works in weird ways! . My wife went to Home depot to grad a shower caddy and saw the picture below! She texted me and said; "There are 2 here, should I grab one"? I said HELL YEAH! A new smoker for $100.00. I don't have the time to build another, and I've been dealing with a gout/arthritis issues so she got a little Char-Griller on 1/2 price sale. Needless to say, I was happy and usually things like this "DON'T" happen to me/us. Well, I spent all day yesterday Freezing my A$$ off putting it together and I seasoned it last night. This morning at 0500, I started a 10lb Pork but for some pulled pork! Details later!
