Hello All

Post by Smokers Ridge » December 23rd, 2019, 9:06 am

Hi all. My name is Barry and I am from middle GA. I am not new to the smoker world but am about to embark on a new project that will probably take several months to complete. the last smoker I dealt with was purchased by a prior hunting club where it badly needed modifications.

The games began and after many hours, the results. The middle rail for the top racks is removable by removing 4 bolts to accommodate a whole pig etc.

I now have another 500 gallon tank that I purchased to use for powder coating but am contemplating a seal-able insert for the powder coating and still be able to smoke. On the other hand, I may just have to look for another way to powder coat.

Welcome aboard.

Learning generally boils down to "Repetition or the avoidance of pain", some people learn by doing, some by watching and some just have to pee on the electric fence.

Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right. Henry Ford
