Smoker Repair Component in Place

Here is the new component for the smoker repair in place.  [Note: The entire smoker is upside down in photos]This is the pan which holds the water and a compartment for the wood. A new $14 drill bit was consumed in the installation adding to the repair cost.  Combsman and I are okay with that as the replacement of the entire smoker who far exceed the repair costs.  Now the plan is to break in the new pan this week.  Time to smoke some pork butt.  Not the ham section
or the shoulder, but the butt-with-bone-in!  Takes longer but the flavor is enhanced.  The Combsman has been perfecting his smoking skills now for about six years.  BBQ in Florida, that is real BBQ, is not easy to come by.  Yes there is PA BBQ but let's face it, that is NOT BBQ.  They steam cook with liquid smoke way off the premises, warm it up, serve it up.  There are a couple of BBQ trailer/wagons around but we don't care for the commute when there is no guarantee of good ol' home smoked goodness.  We did try a few places around and then I gave the Combsman a smoker for an anniversary surprise.

There  will be photos of the test run of the new pan later this week and the end product.  Too bad the blog-o-sphere has not incorporated the smell-o-blog AP because this process makes the neighborhood drool!  Maybe Apple should get on that, ASAP!


  1. Smell-o-blog..I can hardly wait! Glad you got it up and running.

  2. Hey,
    Good to have old friends drop in... been missin' ya!

  3. It'd be nice if there WAS smell-o-blog!

    In central Florida, we're fortunate to have quite a few good places for authentic 'que. The dealer where we bought our grill also decided that he wanted to do more than compete on weekends, so another contender entered the market. :)

    Though nothing beats torturing the neighbors with the smell as a butt is on the grill/smoker.
