Without warning (and only a little provocation), the son of a long-time friend has built me a smoker. It's supposed to be here this week, hopefully in time to do some ribs and a mac-&-cheese for the Glorious 4th.
I have no pics, or I'd posted 'em already. The kid won't send me any.
He owns a metal fabrication shop, https://www.4sfabworks.com/ in CO Springs (that's in CO, folks!!), and this will be his first shot at something to cook in. He claims (and I b'lieve him) that he performed every calculation known to man to get variables like draft, drift, swish and sway just perfect (OCD), and that it will be compact and mobile...
Can you tell I'm giddy? First good news this whole damned year! And all I gotta do is loan him the Alumacraft for a week!
Stay tuned for pho-toe-grafs!
