I started on my firebox I was burning and created a big fire in it with oak and charcoal .. I will use the barrel till I run across an old wood stove that's reasonable. Next comes the smoke house framing.

How would you smoke with a Cajun Microwave? I've never used one but looks interesting, but doesn't seem like it would "smoke" meat.

I think one of the good things about them is they sort of steam the meat like what happens when you bury a pig only there is no shoveling involved. I imagine you could fill the chamber with pineapple and other fruit and it would infuse the meat with all these flavors like stuffed pigs wrapped in banana leaves and buried. That right there is pretty awesome pork.

Very nice.. Gather up a few of your birds that you don't want and tell them you need to test drive before buying and post some pics.
