I actually like the bourbon barrel idea but would like to modify it a bit and put 3 barrels end to end. Of course that would be really expensive right from the start unless a really hot deal was to fall out of the sky. I would think 3 different steel compartments under each barrel for compartmental heat source supply would provide a lot of control. I have someone who can cut and weld the bases. As I type and think this is really sounding intriguing. And worth further consideration.

  All at once?! :shocked: Do you cater parties, or have like 60 people living at your house? :rofl:

Walchit, you might wanna think about looking into a UDS. I'm not sure if you're any good w/ power tools or not, but if you can handle a drill and a sander (and a few cans of spray paint), you should look up some UDS "kits." I've seen 55 gallon steel drums on Craigslist for as little as $25.

Scroll down towards the bottom of this link and you'll see what I mean. If you don't count the elbow grease you'd have to put into it, you can probably do it for cheaper than the $265 one you're looking at.

I'm definitely going to build a UDS in the future. I've heard you can get a 24 hour burn time out of one load of charcoal too (provided you build the basket big enough)

 

What, what?

Thats not really that much. A smoked turkey is one meal even picking the bones clean. 6-7 slabbs of bb ribs is again nothing. I can eat 3-4 slabs myself and call that a meal. and 10lb of pork roast will go all week for sandwiches , dinner cuts and or just snacking. And smokes sauseage will keep for a long time. but it also allows you the opportunity to share some with friends.

I think I've spoiled my 6 year old son. He been asking if we can have brisket for dinner EVERY SINGLE night since I cooked that

Starting a brisket today for the game tomorrow. Little dude was so freakin' happy when he found out, he asked me to take a picture of him with it, hahaha. He was literally jumping up and down and started doing a "brisket dance" 😂

Do you mean the shape of it? It's all one piece, but after too many trips through the clothes dryer, some of the stitching broke and now the shape's all jacked up. He couldn't care less, haha

Or do you mean the logo? It's hard to tell from this black and white pic of Brady's hand, but it's the Patriots logo. It's pictured here a couple of times too ;)
