    Adding more shelves to my offset

    A little over a week ago I started adding capacity to my offset smoker. I have one very long shelf, and two more 'on top' of the first one. This means I can feed 300 people. I opened up the smoker fully and realized there was ample space for yet another shelf, this time below the long one. Said and done, I got the welder fired up, and went to work with my steel grinder. Two hours later I had new shelves, with a perfect fit! Mission accomplished, and I can now easily feed 400 people. Cool!

    Here's the top shelf, removable. It is standing on the long shelf (running the full length of the smoker).

    And here's the top shelf and part of the middle shelf removed, so the bottom shelf (newly manufactured) is visible.

      OK well I'm Swedish and have always wanted to see the homeland. Perhaps a road trip to visit Henrik is in order. Any takers?

      Troutman, get your butt on over here! We’ll sit by the fire, pop a cold one, smoke meat and shoot the breeze.

        I'm gonna fire it up with all 6 Fireboard probes mounted to see the temp difference at different locations. Will be interesting. 3 probes mounted in the left half of the food chamber, at bottom, middle and top shelf respectively. Then the same in the right half of the food chamber.

        I have cooked 60 kilos (130 lbs) several times, so I know that works just fine.

                    • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

                    #13
                    More shelves equal more meat. Sometimes I wish my Lang had another grate but with the Shirley coming this year I’ll be good.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill
                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  kareubequ bbq smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                  masterbuilt gas smoker
                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                  Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees.
