I have heard this concrete tool called a pig tail twister, but I still can't figure out what's up with the screwdriver. [smilie=a_whyme.gif]

That could be a handy gadget. When we load hogs for slathering we put a pail over there head and twist there tail to get them up the ramp into the truck, That tool looks like it might make them move a little faster!

Oh hell, another spelling nazi.Slaughter is the correct spelling. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to spelling. Joker usually handles this type of thing, but since he's gone ( for the hundredth time ) some has to take over. I guess.

I don't care how you spell. I'm just really concerned about how you "slather" those pigs.

Anything else would just be WRONG!

Re: building first smoker

Turn it on its nose and make yourself a multi racked upright direct cooker with or w/o an optional water pan. That be the highest calling for such a fine piece of pipe as whut you got. Offset pits are the pits. They attempt to break all the laws of physics..thermodynamics..global warming etc...unfortunantly without much success cept for the global warming part. Offset pits is a krewlish hoax foisted off onto dumb yups with gold visor cards. Just my .02 of course.

I keep reading differing opinions about reverse flow but it seems like it woud be easier to keep an even temp. throughout the cooking chamber. Any help or opinions would be great. I will try to post pics of my progress soon.
