Well when I don't work on the car or my other vehicles or have to tend to yard work I like smoking meats in my smoker I built. Here are some pics of the build and some of the food that comes off it. Hope you all enjoy!

I think it used to be a propane tank and then the machine shop I go to was using it as a compressor tank till the tanks identifying tag fell off then insurance wouldn't let him use it anymore so he got a real compressor tank and I got a new smoker chamber!

Well one benefit with this cold is I can run my smoker at a low enough temp to smoke bacon without melting the fat off of it. Got the full bellies from a coworker that raises dirt hogs and butchers them himself and a shoulder chunk to make cottage bacon. Cured the meat for 11 days and smoked them for 9 hours last night. Hand cut it all and now have about 30lbs of bacon! IMG_1078.JPG IMG_1077.JPG IMG_1079.JPG IMG_1082.JPG IMG_1084.JPG
