      • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
        1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
        2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
        3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
        4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
        5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
        6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
        7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
        8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
        9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
        10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
        11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
        12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
        12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

        Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

        I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
        I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

        Didn't get time to snap pics today but made some progress. Guys welded on the door seals, filled the counter weights (25kilos of sand each). I fabbed the manifold to mount the 2 x 6" stacks and made the guides for the racks. It will have 8 racks total and have about 8m2 capacity. Pic is the grate to stop the wood falling into the cook chamber. 95% of this build is with recyled steel.

          Dropped of the hotplates at one of the workshops along with the counter weights. The young welder was mounting the guides inside the long 1000 gallon.

            I’d like to see what you could do with a de-commissioned submarine. Or, maybe that’s what you are working on already.

              He could start with the USS Drum in Mobile, AL. It's relatively small and would be a good starter project.

            Slowly getting there.I have been busy on other work. Going to squirt some paint on it tonight. Much easier to paint it underneath now while we can still roll it over. Hotplate for the firebox is ready to be welded on. Tomorrow I will go to the other shop where the fat one is being built. Have a prototype of the new design small pit ready (on back of truck).

                OMG, you are one of the reasons I joined this site! Pit building and a pit master, maybe we could get meathead to charter a plane for all of us to spend time in both your cooking class and the fab shop!

                Progress on the fat log burner. Working on the deflector plate between firebox and cook chamber. The 25 kilo counter weights work perfect. Will be making smoke next week. Waiting on steel to make the firebox door surround.

                  And we have a trailer. Going to add a wood box on the front. Still waiting on steel for the firebox door surround. Will look better once we get some paint on it.

                      I like the simplicity of the trailer. I guess you don't have any requirements to have suspension and brakes on those trailers, right? Very nice to see the build progress, there's some fine welding. I'm gonna get started modifying my trailer this weekend.

                        It has 6 leaf springs rated for 1500 kilos on it. I could have put electric brakes on it but the client didn't want to spend the extra $500. He can do it later if he wants. It is alll flat around Buenos Aires and he has a Hilux to pull it. It will weigh about 1400 kilos when finished.

                        Nice and easy. In Sweden I can't bring it out on the street without blinkers, brake lights, registration plate, et.c. Death by regulation.

                        We have that also here , but I make a removable rear bumper and run a cable directly to the truck. Takes 2 mins to install and connect.

                      Nearly ready for paint. Made with 98% recyled steel. Owner can collect it this week. On the other long model we decided to make a trailer instead of just casters, so will be building that this week also.

                        That's a neat towing eye being able to adjust it the drawbar. We have drop plates on the towbar. What is the approx weight on towing eye?

                        Probably about 80-100kilos. Usually you want about 10% of the trailer weight on the hitch.

                        Come on down. Too cold where you live up there by the North Pole. We can hang out and boil up some hotdogs .....

                    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!

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                    Grilla pellet smoker

                    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 MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                    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'.
