That is a really badass smoker! I want to build one now!

Other than just building some stuff from what I see in pictures and playing with it, do you have any specific advice on what not to do building smoker? I think in the pacific northwet I might have more challenges with rust.

Enjoy the time with the kids (both kinds) they don't stay small for long.

Cleaning out all the drumbs

The maiden smoke 16 hours on mesquite, my best brisket yet.

End result. Sorry know its not a foody form but hoped some of you would appreciate the creativity that went in to the smoker


The mini dairy goats had babys and the second to last week of the semester i got to have my son for a while...but cant accomplish much but enjoy the kids when i have them both

My kids with the baby goats

So that put me behind and when their mom pick them both up I put in a 120 hour week to get caught up and finish 2 final projects for school
That was near the end of my second 40 hour day. Aparently one of the finals is already off the school server but here is the other Jon's Site: Tiny Home only half the pages got content put in but the codeing is there and got an a

Zoomy,

Not trying to be an a__, but you better recheck your math about the weight of the water. Are you figuring it at 1lb/gal? Check it out and I think you'll find that it weighs 1lb/pint or 64lbs/gal.

Like I said, I'm not trying to be a wise-ass, I'm just trying to save you what might be a major problem,

Rober

Even deuterium oxide (2H2O - "Heavy Water") doesn't weigh 64 lbs per gallon.

Try 8.34 lbs per gallon at 62 degrees F. (density changes with temperature)

It's ok. How did you come up with 64 lbs anyway?

Well, I would suppose he miscalculated the number of pints in a pound, since he did have the weight of a pint correct.

"A pint is a pound the world around," and all.
