    btw, 15+ years of weather element = rust. unfortunately, there's no sand blaster at work, so an excessive sanding job using 40 grit will do fine.



    stay tuned. there still is more work needing to be done.
    Any progress?

    I soak my mesquite chips in bourbon than use them in the smoker. Add's a great flavor and I make sure the bourbon is O.K. before I use it...

    custom smoker update.......

    trial run #1

    a small bundle of charcoal was used. in an hour with all vents opened at the bottom and the top and doors latched shut, the surface was hot to the touch. as I have not bought a temp gauge yet, I placed the oven thermometer on the top rack, and after 30 minutes the temp read 250.

    I plan to switch to lump coals and run another test to determine the right amount at the right tempurature before actually using the smoker for good.

    would it make sense to put a metal bowl of water above the charcoal to deflect the heat?

    or a tray of water. question is, how big should either be? this smoker is 22 inches in diameter.

    as long as it is big enough to deflect heat to the sides, I think it would be fine

    I have the 22.5 weber smoker and I put water in it everytime.

    Actually, it looks close to it. Great job.
