Very nice job and well done OU. Wish I were that handy with things like that

I am not as "think" as you "drunk" I am.

Can you make one for me?
This would solve all my problems, even the ones I dont have yet !
All I wanted to do was slow smoke some ribs.  Another addiction created thanks to the Bradley that requires regular servicing...  But what an addiction to have.  Even better to share here with some of the best people on the planet.

Would you like smoke with that sir ?

Thanks guys, It took me longer to figure out where I wanted to put it and how I was going to do it than it did to make it.

That's a beautiful job OU.  I couldn't do that even with a sheet metal brake.

I'd like to ask you a personal question.  Of course you don't have to answer.  What do you do for a living?  Please don't say 'Accountant'  ;D ;D

Project Manager  ::)

Been in construction all my life, started finishing concrete when I was 13, built a few houses and worked on some major commercial projects, now I mainly bid projects and feed the puter with what we build or going to build and check on the guys actually doing the work.  8)

I usually drink at home, this way I don't have that far to crawl to the bed.

It has been a looooooooooooong time sense I've been in cuffs and I'm going to keep it that way.

Cuffs????

You mean when they slam your face on the hood and pull your wrists up together?
Like up near the back side of your neck? 
Where you didn't think they could bend to?
Kinda pulling your arm joints "outta socket"?
Just to imply that you need to grow up?
And do your drinking at home?
And NOT require any more impromptu meetings with them?

Sounds like a bummer, guys.
Glad I'm not you.
Awrighten.

That looks great!!  I'm wondering if the exhaust hood eliminates the smell from the garage as well?  I have an indoor grill in my kitchen(it was state of the art 30 years ago when the kitchen was remodeled in my house). ;D  Anyway, I've been contemplating setting my bradley under the exhaust hood on top of the grill.  If the exhaust fan doesn't eliminate almost all of the smell, I will be sleeping in the garage with the bradley.  I love the smell, but the wife isn't as crazy about it as I am.

Never hurts to try!! I wouldn't open the door when the smoke is rolling though!!! Might get a bit nippy in the garage.

Same situation here.  I was thinking of shoving the OBS into the fireplace in the living room.  Luckily, it wouldn't quite fit because if I opened the door ...

That must have been a lot of fun to build OU.  Nice looking setup, it should keep you a little warmer while smokin this winter.
