In response to my post from yesterday, Day 1 in a series of articles I have planned titled "31-Days to Better BBQ", I received this picture of "Bessie" from Adam Byrd, webmaster at Men In Aprons.
This New Braunfels is a perfect example of an offset smoker. Inexpensive, but very effective, Adam says this smoker turns out some good barbecue. He regularly cooks all types of 'que ranging from brisket, ribs, pork loin, chickens, Thanksgiving Turkey and plenty of other items. Adam has even customized the handles using spindles normally used in stairway construction.
If you'd like to share a picture of your smoker with my readers, e-mail me and I'll post it here.
