5 Day Build ...(Pics added)...

Will try to add some pics of the smoker/bbq I just built in 5 days. Had someone back out of promised
duty of cooking a hog, so I quickly scrambled to build this with backyard scrap.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
===========================================

Sorry it took so long before I posted them, I had some trouble with my "photobucket" transfer.

I also have a bunch while I was building it, if anyone is interested.

Total newbie to BBQ.... I am open to any suggestions and ideas on changing or improving it.

It cooked a 186 lb. hog in about 12 hours with a 1/2 and 1/2 mix of Oak wood and Hickory wood.... took about a wheelbarrow and a 1/2 of wood to do entire cook. First hour kept it at 300* and the rest it sat between 230*-255*. Meat had a beautiful smoke ring and was absolutely delicious.

This was my first build and my first hog...........wouldn't hesitate for a second to do it again.

I appreciate any feedback from any and all..........thank you for your great site from which I pulled ideas for building it.

Shoot, most of the cookers I make are out of backyard scrap. I am not too proud to pull off the side of the road to pick up some scrap metal.

Cant wait to see the pics.

Thanks for adding the pics. Cooker looks great. That is one big ass rotisserie.
I've seen pics of you firebox some where in a post about using a woodstove as a fire box.

If it holds temps the way you want it to, I wouldn't change a thing.
