BigEZCajun, it is a "baked" potato with melted garlic butter and a corn/dressing mix. I cook the taters foiled along with the meat.

Well, got some work done on the "left over" pit. Sorry about the bad pics, it`s dark and stormy over here. We had a couple of really bad storms with 51mph winds so I have been running around securing my welding"shelter" and other loose items.
Anyway, my square smoker/grill/cold smoker is coming along. I just keep adding stuff to it, almost completely made out of leftovers from other projects. It`s now named "Mr leftover".
I plan on finishing the build tomorrow and give it a layer of paint.





And yes, we tried it. Stuffed some sausages with the LEM we bought at Bass Pro. Also a couple of spare ribs, everything came out tasty.

Plenty of room for goodies and fatties Very Happy


Inlets on the short end of the smoker.


Had to have a log starter.


Sturdy stuff in the firebox.


These worked great. I put "lips" on all 3 dampers.


The counterweight. It`s a heavy lid!

Intake for the reverse flow, from the main chamber to the warmer. I made the tuning plates Kevinstyle, overlapping to be able to use it as a reverse flow. It worked, I got the warmer going at 225 along with the main chamber. Very Happy ps: I did not have the wood in there while testing the R/F Laughing


Some bling for the finishing touch Very Happy

Thank you folks! Very Happy I finished the smoker yesterday and drag, pulled and struggled to get the beast in place. I just gave it a light coat of paint before seasoning it. I got some pork butts cooking as we speak and some chicken in a brine for later. It performs really well, the warmer is PERFECT for preheating wood Laughing The logstarter is very nice, put the logs in and turn on the gas! After reading a lot of posts in here I HAVE to mention that the propane is only used for starting the fire, it`s not used during cooking! Propane is dangerous stuff to mess with, I know after using several propane forges for years. Do NOT mess with propane in a steel box!!! Stay safe.

The weather here is really bad so this is an extreme cook test. Rainy, very windy and cold.
Here he is, Mr. Leftover is alive and breathing Very Happy

Thank you! Yes, it is a fold down. With all the kids running around I need the hard corners out of the way.
Here it is folded down.
