I have never been to a comp before, and really have no idea what is involved. Add to that all of the other hobbies I already have, and I"m not sure my wife would be willing to go!! But it has piqued my curiousity.

Update? How'd the big Caveman BBQ go this year? I'm sure it was an absolute hit with that new beast you've got! Congrats on an awesome build!!!

I forgot to update this, good catch!

Ribs were procured, "conditioning" in the spare fridge.



hmmm, wonder what this will be...



about 90 ABT's!!!



Ribs all rubbed down, and put in their own foodsaver bag (love that thing) to sit overnight.



Libations were all carbed up and ready to go. These were the "on deck" kegs...



As the kegerator was already full



Smoker up to temp, time for some ribs...



Ribs are all done!



And the last pic took of the day, people lining up at the table.



All said, there were about 55 people total. Even had the local radio station show up. It was good times!

So I couldn't have been more pleased with the way this baby has worked all WINTER. Granted it hasn't been much of a winter, but it's still been below freezing. I never could have used my Brinkman SnP in colder climates. I had this baby chugging away at a group brew event two weeks ago in the SNOW!! That was nice, finish up a 1.100 RIS and chow down on some ABT's, Chicken, and Ribs!! The rest of the homebrew club was happy too!

So after four years, it was time to strip this puppy down and get rid of some rust. She sits in the driveway, unprotected. The elements have taken a toll.







I stripped everything off that could unbolt, and taught my wife how to use an angle grinder with a wire brush attachment. We went to town on all of the rust spots on the frame/smoker/firebox.

The fenders had this really hard epoxy primer, and the original paint never really took to it, as you can see in the previous pics. So i took them down to metal, shot with primer, and then put on the same paint as the rest of it.



Next up were the wheels. I had a bearing go bad and pretty much detonate on both sides. Puked grease all on the inside of the rim. A full bottle of dawn, and an hours worth of elbow grease got the crap off the rim, so I could then get rid of the rust spots and reshoot them with a metallic blue.







I took the box I have that holds the Stoker unit, striped it of the blue it had and repainted that as well.
