Charcoal Experiment

Post by Gizmo » August 18th, 2011, 6:19 pm

Thought some of you might find these pictures interesting. I just found them on an old camera last night and I thought of all of my other demented smoker builder friends on here so here you go - should be good for laugh... :roll:
Three stages of the maze idea - built - burning - and almost done - total 23hrs and 45 min.
Image
Image
Image
Built a basement cabinet for the maze with 1" thick walls and insulated
Image
basement burning with riser for temp measurements... door's not on in this picture.
Image
Built and upstairs/cook chamber for it... also insulated but 2 inch thick roof.
Image
Inside the cook chamber....
Image
Cooked one load of chicken wings in it one time - then stripped it down for the steel. Didn't work.
Kay sarah, sarah I always say sometimes... but here I am still at it - sort of like looking for the fountain of youth... @-)


And on the eighth day God created barbecue …. because he DOES love us and he wants us to be happy. :D

After about 3 hours it will flash over (runaway fire) the heat dried out the unlit charcoals and they would spontaneously ignite.
