    This is my very 1s smoker ever....I built it this weekend
    Let me know what you guys think. Im not sure how to put these pictures in order or how to write discriptions inbetween them. One of these pics shows a small rubber plug I found in the HD hardware section. I got them so no water can get down in my valves and ruin them.

    Nice build! You came outta the gate with two builds in one weekend. Now lets get some fire and smoke going in the drum and get some tastey eats rollin.

    Also you may want to invest in a cane style weed burner (I get mine at Lowe's up by the Bernz O matic burners). Don't use lighter fluid in the drum unless you want everything to taste like it.

    Now you're gonna have some fun!

    If you use photobucket like most of us do, posting nice big pix in the order you want is easy.

    Here's a link to a tutorial:

    I got a 10# Pork butt at the store but Im not sure what to do with it. I will be spending some time today looking though this site to see how to prep and smoke it for this coming weekend.

    Before the weekend cook I would give the drum a dry run.
    That is 'no meat'. Not only to burn out any chemicals, paint, and what not But also to give you an idea on temp control.Shoot for around 225F.
    Find you a good rub, I rub mine the day before I cook. Cant go wrong with Head Country Rub(found at HEB) And giddy-up.
    Oh yea you need a meat thermometer too.
