Cypress smoker 1st cook

After all that work gonna give the smoker a test. A real test. Trimmed and seasoned up a 14lb brisket a rabbit from my neighbors hutch, and a little deer sausage for a snack. gonna smoke the brisket about 12 hours at around 250 if i can hold it there. Everything on the smoker worked out real good. I was able to control the temp with in about 10 degrees without useing a ton of charcoal. had a little problem with the main door, but we have that figured out. By the way the grub was great. Hears a few pics from the day.

Re: Cypress smoker 1st cook

Very nice smoker and food.

Does the charcoal sit on the sheet metal on the floor of the smoker or do you have some type of container you put the charcoal in?
