Well work on the cooker has been slow, to much going on right now. Hope to have it finished the end of the month. Here are a few pics.







Hopefully will be able to get the rest of the materials I need to finish up by the end of this month.

Well almost done. Here are a some pics of what I have done and the first cook. Prept metal on the trailer where fenders are to be installed.





Welded the backs to the fender and primed the back before installed.



Installed fenders on trailer and finished woodbox/storage.





Started working on the two burner stove, they will have two low pressure burnners. I will also add one high pressure burner for boiling in front of trailer.



I still have a few things left to do before primed and paint.Ok here is the first cook on her. I was really pleased with the way she cooked. Done a little Mothers Day cook, four spares, leg quarters and fresh links. she held right at 225 for whole cook. The food turned out really well.



The ribs turned out so moist it looks like sauce on them, but no sauce for me.







THanks for looking.

WOW! That is a great looking RF Smoker. The proportions and the functionality seem to be dead on as well as your attention to detail. Glad the Q turned out good too. PM me and I'll send you my address to overnight some Q to Smile
