Thanks, pork_belly... I live at above 7000', and generally have snow on the ground from late November until late March... So the temps and altitude and weather can be a "challenge" here for almost any smoker and "the smoker" (the cook)... But my Fat 50 performed beautifully in it's inaugural cook...

Yeah, I know the cook has "a little" to do with this whole process as well Wink.... But considering this was my first time using a full-blown stick burner, and was the first time to use a smoker of this size (I also have an older model Brinkmann SNP and a large BDS) - well, this DPP Fat 50 - and help from Travis and Jay - and posts/PM from other DPP owners on this site - sure made it pretty easy for me to turn out a great first cook!! Cool

Well thought I would jump in here In March I bought my first DPP series 70 smoker and I have to say that I fell in love with it right away it is the most consistant smoker that I have found. I started doing MIM contests getting in 4 last year and 1 KCBS contest. I have not done to badly placing in the top ten so far, just have to keep tweeking my process until I get the combination that the judges are looking for. I have also started a catering business and have done 8 events so far and looking to expand it this year. In december I gave myself a Xmas present of the Fat 50 which I have now got season and ready to go for the New Year.
I am looking to do a couple of mods on both smokers first one being to have a pressure valve put on the steamer tank so that if I want to add more water I can do so safely with out the cap blowing off (this has happened a couple of time and scared the sh*t out of me). My question is has anyone done something like this? Any suggestions on the best way to do it? Also has anyone had any issues with the pipe between the burners cracking? I have had this happen on both the 70 and the Fat 50 and have ended up replacing the pipe with a steel pipe which seems to have taken care of the issue.

Hey Chef,I would also like info on that saftey valve for the steaqmer,I never thought of that before,but I will also look into it and maybe Travis has some info on it as well.The cracked pipes between burners ?Are you talking about the burners in the cooking chamber,the log lighter burners,or the external burners for cooking beans,heating water,etc. ? I only have the burner in the cooking chamber and the log lighter burner,I do not have any others.I however have had no problems with the pipes on my log lighter or cooking chamber burners at all.So far I have had no problems with my unit yet !

The pipe that I'm have problems with are the pipe between the burners to heat and cook stuff on. Not sure why the crack but I've replaced them with a piece of steel pipe. As I get closer to figuring out the pressure valve and get it done I'll take some pics and post.

I thought it looked cool with the yellow and black paint job. I'm sure it will make someone proud to cook on.

Thanks,

Travis, please don't say that there is a Steeler themed DPP and I don't have it. Seeing as how I just got my 70, my wife would throw it and me out when I showed up to the house with it!
