I don't blame you. How could you possibly turn a smoker-in-need out to the cruel world to be alone. Thanks for giving it a good home! Very Happy

The intakes will be changed to a reduced size in the next few days if I can scrounge up the parts. 3/4 works well but I want a bit more controll at lower temps.

Smoked it low over pecan and cherry then ran the temps through the roof after the flip.





All done. High temps made for perfect skin.
