This is my first smoker project. This was a fun project for never having welded before. I used a Lincoln Power Mig 256. I am trying to find someone to do a high heat powdercoat on it. That is the only photos I dont have. I did find out that on this type of project you really need a 7" angle grinder. I had a 4 1/2" but it just took too long to grind the welds and edges down. I have done two briskets and about
5-6 racks of ribs and a few chickens. Once you get it set right it holds the temperatue very well, even in cold weather.
