That thing is Bad Ass. I'd be out there with a patio umbrella over it smoken away. Looks like a craigslist buy. What's the story?

Don't you have an Easy Up, umbrella, or something like that? Nice score Cap'n.

Re: Got a new smoker.....and it's raining

no, there's a board that a lot of the teams on the South Carolina comp circuit hang out on.
Some guy got a Lang and his wife did the old "you've got to get rid of something" routine.
It's well used, I'm at least the third owner, but I paid less than half price of a new one,
plus he just replaced the therm and one of the gaskets.

I've been wanting a cabinet for a while, and I just couldn't turn down this price.

WSM's are for sale.

I thought about putting up the EZ up, but this is actually a thunderstorm, and while
it's fairly warm, it's pretty windy and the rain is supposed to be all day.

Might do a short smoke tomorrow.

Very nice. I went to the Backwoods website and checked out some of their smokers. Very impressive. Is yours comparable to the Competitor model?

Re: Got a new smoker.....and it's raining

the one I have is called The Party. It can hold 8 to 10 butts.
I'm gonna put a base or maybe a wagon under it so I don't
have to bend down so much. Really like the front door feature
vs. the wsm's access from the top.

Gettin' older you know....

Re: Got a new smoker.....and it's raining

I've heard nothing but good about the Backwoods, your gonna be real happy........as soon as you man up and use it!

Can't wait to see pix of the first cook. BTW, what will be the break in meat?

Congrats on a great find!

PS Send the rain our way, dry as a bone here.
