    I like chicken wings like most people, and fried is always good but it's hard to beat the flavor you can get from smoking. I usually only cook for a couple people in one go, so I decided it was time to lay down the money on a custom smoker that would help keep the fuel costs down. It's still able to handle 3 large wings at a time. Of course I use lump coal. With this baby one bag lasts me a good 2 years. I decided to splurge and have them build it so I can trailer it for camping, on the beach, music festivals, etc.

    I love it!  Perhaps if you get tired of wings you could try grilling a slider or two.

    VERY impressive piece of engineering there, Eastshores!  Have you considered licensing it to Weber?  You could probably retire on the royalties.

    Maybe, in a second edition, you could run the exhaust pipe up into it and have ready-to-eat wings when you arrived at your picnic spot.

    You know someone did write an entire cook book on using your car engine as the heat source.

    Yeah, I vaguely remember that; you wrapped your meal in heavy foil, put it on the exhaust manifold, and drove until dinnertime.  That was before I became a foodie, so I never tried it.

    Can't recommend it - had a friend try it and I think he is still picking Salmon pieces out from under the hood :)
