    Henry Porter...thanks! I usually smoke something about every weekend. Brisket...ribs....pork butts....you name it. I use mostly apple wood...but also use cherry, mesquite and peach quite a bit. Next time I fire it up I will try to remember to take some pics.

    Great docthebiker I will keep my open on this thread. I will have one of those smokers myself one day, I think they are a an ornament to any garden or poolside and I bet the foods that comes out of them is something special as well. Never eaten any real bbq but I longing for it.

    I forgott to say that I love the mixture of pictures that you posted! Not only building pics, it becomes so much more interesting to read if you mix it up like you have done. And the dog is very cute btw

    That's what I thought, but I figured I'd give you the benefit of the doubt Why Nature2?

    It came with the pool actually...I will use it this year...but next year I will remove it. Question though....does anyone know if I can put the 1" chlorine tabs in the side that holds the chlorine cartridge. I am assuming that the cartridge is more expensive...and that I cannot run tabs in the other or both sides? Does anyone know if that is the case?

    What brand is your pool? And where did your order from? I have no local pool dealers
    I'm looking to upgrade from Intex myself next year.

    Forgot to say that it looks great!

    1. The pool is a Wil Bar?

    2. I got it from a chain store..."The Great Escape" (They deal with hot tubs, pools, outdoor furniture, pool tables, and much much more. They are pretty big.

    3. I know how you feel about the Intex...I grew so tired of moving it in and out of the garage every year. Plus...I now longer have to completely drain my pool every year...just drop it below the return and skimmer to close.

    4. Thanks ...if all goes well we will be in the pool this coming weekend!
