Funny, I had never thought to sniff my red oak before reading this thread. As I was splitting some for today's cook, I took a whiff and thought "Yep, smells like cat piss....."

I bought a Weber chimney about 2 years ago, and it's still doing great. The bottom grate is getting a bit rusty, but shows no sign of giving up. I've noticed that whole midsection of the chimney tend ...

Interesting, I seem to be able to light lump in my chimney with no problem no matter how I pack the newspaper. For a while I thought I had to use some fatwood for a starter, but when I ran out I real ...

I would vote for mold or something nasty inside the smoker. My method would be to burn the living crap out of it, then try again with food.

I think that is a question of what you want to get out of it. If the only goal is to have a smoker, then hiring it out might make sense. For me, I put over a year into mine, along with blood, sweat, ...

I never saw it in Virginia, and I looked in quite a few places (Hampton Roads, inside the DC Beltway, near Farmville, etc.).

Of course, now I'm in Maryland and haven't seen it, either.
