    I won this smoker in a raffle from the volunteer Fire Dept in Joy, Tx.
    I spent $10 on tickets and won it. There were over 100 other entries.

    I want a biger one but this one will do for now. I have another one I've had for several years but it was time to replace it with the new one.
    This one was hand made by the Chief himself and they raffle one off every year.

    A nice one for sure, it's especially good that it was handmade. Now the only question is, whens the cookout? Hope you enjoy it a long time. Later Andy

    What a nice smoker. At first glance I thought it was a run of the mill smoker from TSC till I saw the firebox. That sucker is big. I really like the tree branch handle too I will use that idea. Is the firebox double lined?
    I don't think Al needs any advise on smoking meat! look how close he is standing to his new smoker in the picture, he doesn't look the least bit scared.lol:crazy::smile2::smile2:

    Thanks for the input. I've been cooking on smokers for many years and my briskets always turn out juicy and tender.

    Thanks Jack, It was all hand made by the chief of the volunteer fire dept.
    The fire box is not double walled but I may make it that way so I can add a cooking suface to the top. This smoker weighs about 400 lbs. it's very good steel, most of the weight is the firebox. We are going to mount it on my trailer.
    Notice the firemans helmet for controling the heat to the smoker and the firemans axe is what opens the stack.

    It sure cooks real fine. I can't wait till I have it mounted to my trailer.
    Right now it's up at my inlaws so it can be mounted.
