Dyer Vent on the smoke stack? Listen here rookies, nothing is worse than getting your tent all full of smoke especially when you're 6'2" and that stuff rises and lingers! My best MOD so far for my Drum is the homemade dolly using an old lid and "borrowed" castors that my neighborhood school was disposing of! RECYCLE, REDUCE and REUSE!!
IQue 110 pit controller hanging down from the table. It is not weather proof by any means so many people buy fancy boxes or fab up crazy ammo cases to hold it. Since I have a PhD in Redneck Studies from the University of Pittsburgh, I just used my noodle and put a small hole in a Ziploc bag and threaded the strap through! Cheap is the new Expensive for 2013!
Ziploc bags are more versatile than duct tape as any Burgher or Burger would know since growing up we all were sent out in the snow with bags in our boots by the matriarch of the family! I know...GENIUS!!! You know you are going to try it so don't even pretend to scoff at the bag boots!
As you can see from the pic above, my cook space remained smoke free and as dry as your GranPappy's Pork! Unfortunately, I am sad to report that all is not well in the House of Refuse though. Yes, the pork and spuds turned out fantastic as always but as the day went on I had a weird feeling in my gut that has completely turned my world upside down. After some extensive investigation I have concluded that we have a traitor in our midst!
Q'Believers...it pains me to have to inform you that my daughter Maya has forsaken the family legacy and jumped ship to Clan Ceramic! At press time I am currently in the process of removing her from my will due to the blasphemy she has brought to our family toiling with that LITTLE GREEN EGG!!! My only hope is that sometime soon after potty training she will out grow this fascination and get herself a proper RUBBISH RECEPTACLE and make her Daddy proud!
Happy New Year
LOVE, PEACE and SMOKE
