          Credit to my boss for that. The picture appeared on my locker at work after he saw me waltzing across the hangar with a large propeller over my shoulder and the nickname stuck

                Love it and miss it. Have a brisket hanging out in my garage freezer waiting for this virus shit to be over. Can’t eat a whole one by myself.

                  Smoke it, slice into meal sized portions, vacuum seal, refreeze and have brisket ready anytime you want. Works killer with pulled pork too.

                    You gonna do a reverse flow or just straight offset? Few years back I built my buddy a big reverse flow out of a 500 gallon propane tank. They work great for keeping the temps nice and even. I now get invited over everytime he fires it! I love bbq!

                      This! The proper way is to go overkill on complexity, for a small but measurable increase in utility. If you don’t go with reverse flow, we’ll all know and judge quietly.

                      me? Oh, I have a store-bought pellet grill. What you’re proposing is to do it the hard way. Us easy way people are the best ones to tell you how you’re doing it wrong while making your own thing.

                        Conventional flow but with a few tweaks.
                        I've recently acquired a very impressive book and if you're into Texas style BBQ or any sort of smoker BBQ really it's a must own IMO.

                          I spent years really into smoking.

                          I had 3 different smokers, I got all obsessed with using different woods.

                          I came to understand that I only like the lightest taste of smoke.

                          These days I use a ceramic cooker with a lump charcoal and very rarely I use some smoke pellets.

                          Have fun with your journey.

                            Made a start today and just about died


                            Couldn't get the valve out of the big bottle to purge it, so I decided to drill a 3/4" hole so I could stick the hose in it.
                            Hole went fine, nice and slow with a bit of oil to keep it cool. Squirted some detergent in there and started filling it with water, it was at this point the SHTF.......
                            Apparently the water was pushing out the mercaptan residue and making a bit of a pong so Mrs NZ stuck her head out the door because she could smell gas. Well apparently a bit of a pong is an understatement, it was a fucking hench stench and Mrs NZ just about when she stuck her head out the door and my reaction went something like this which didn't improve matters. Well as the married amongst us will not be surprised to hear, her reaction and subsequent over reaction nearly resulted in loss of life

                              Taste is definitely subjective, my plan initially at least is to use post oak or whatever passes for its equivalent over here and go from there.
