    Be really cool if you could put Welker farms in old English letters on the hood of the smoker or the door where the wood or charcoal goes in at just something to make it stand out

    Hi Guys What happened to the auction video. Was watching it live then it stopped. Tried to restart the clip but it was gone.
    Hopefully you guys were still film the auction when the smoker was offered and you can edit it and reload the clip.
    Just want to see it and the attention it finally generated.

    Knurling is a strange word, you´re right.
    If you don´t give it your best and work for the best oucome possible, is it even worth doing? As a machinist I´ve been trained that nothing but perfection is acceptable. I make parts for rifles, aviation and all kinds of things that can go horribly wrong if I half-ass my job.

    OK that design you used fails. You have the fire chamber lower than your lowest rack. Than you have to have a solid plate in the chamber so your smoke can travel left to right at mid level and than back where the stack will be in order to cover 2 solid racks.

    Thanks to the Welkers, and Andrew Camarata, i will be buying my first welder here in a few hours. I've always wanted one, and finances came through. Theres a shop not too far from me that has Lincoln Electric AC/DC stick welders, and i think its a great entry level welder to start with. Unless i can find a Miller wire fed welder for a good price. :)

    Difference between a judgment and assessment. You bite into an apple and find a half of a worm. Assessment this apple has a worm and I have half in my mouth. making incorrect Judgments, all apples have worms. We are open to honest critique / assessment but not to faulty judging. Important to know the difference in assessing ourselves and others. just a thought

    Add a propane or electric burner underneath with it's own box and thermostat. That will let you build a small fire for smoke and the burner will control the heat. Frees you up from tending the fire to regulate cooking temp. You will thank me for that idea later.

    Wanted to share with you that I’ve watched with interest your site for some time but was most interested in your rotor conversion to a smoker/grill as my dad and I were one of the first owners of a 1460 back in the day. We took a lot of grief for that at the time, funny now how that technology is everywhere. Also mention I’m retired in Az and have shared your hobby with the “Big Buds” with my neighbor who is a past CEO/Pres of IH/Steiger
    Keep up the good work and stay safe!

He can show you how to love yourself because He loved you first. You have so much to offer in this life. You still have a purpose. Don’t give up.

I keep wondering who will be the first Green, Red, Blue, Yellow, Silver, US, or Europe to start production clear coating their agriculture equipment. Farmers wash and wax their Tractors and Combines more than their trucks.

    Remembers the first vids of rough cutting and chopping up bullet. Leg arms montage makes a door worthy of a pro.
    Next time make a stand up smoker. Then you can keep the rotor without a stack, cut holes in the bulkheads for the smoke/heat to rise through.
