Mine is pretty much the same as this, only it has the same sized gas grill on the left, I've had it for about 10 years and it gives great flavor.

I wish I had the one with the gas grill attached as well. Sometimes the convenience of gas is very attractive.

I picked up a green egg a couple weeks ago. Thing is bad ass.

I have done a couple of pork butts so far. I think I'm going to try a brisket next week.

Did some boneless/skinless chicken breasts this weekend (what the wife likes) for some family coming over. After a little reading, I brined them in a salt/sugar bath, cut them open and put a little butter in them, put a rub on, and wrapped one piece of thick cut bacon around them. Went around 240, give or take, for about 3 hours, then cranked it up to 280 for about 20 minutes to get them up to temperature. Best chicken I have ever had. I put the rest of the bacon on the smoker too. That was REALLY good.

I have been wanting an electric pellet smoker for some time now. My dad has one and I love it.

How well does it hold heat/smoke? I looked at a few at Home Depot but they had lots of gaps that smoke/heat would leak out of and seemed really thin walled.

It held 250-275 pretty constant, I just added new wood chunks and coals about every 2 hours to keep the heat up. It's not sealed 100% but I think that helped keeping the heat even. A little bit on black RTV would help this one if you wanted to spend the time to seal around the temp gauge, handle, and smoke stack.

The one I have weighs 600lbs and is almost entirely 10ga or 11ga steel and fits up very well. Most others I looked at were significantly thinner, but personally I think mine is overkill. If I don't open it and leave it alone, it will usually keep within 5-8 degrees of what it is set at. If it gets really windy or if it gets opened a lot, it will go +/- 15 degrees or so until it settles down.

I wish I would have bought this sized one. I bought the one smaller than this.

I use drum smokers, this one isn't mine, it's one I built for a friend...but mine isn't much different. Having trouble finding a picture of it at the moment. :shrug:




What's the ammo box on the side for?

the firebox is normally inside on a drum smoker and the air inlets (ball valve and close nipples) around the base provide the air. The only thing I could think of was possibly a fan set up to keep temps stable (BBQ Guru, for instance) but I've never had an issue with with controlling temps on my drums.

found an old picture of my drum, it's black now. I guess I don't do a very good job picto-documenting my life.
