Build Your Own Big Baby Backyard BBQ Smoker
I've looked far and wide, and to date - you're hard pressed to beat the Big Baby Double Barrel BBQ Smoker for honest to goodness DIY style backyard smoked BBQ. Though the finished product looks a bit intimidating, the construction of this Double Barrel BBQ Smoker is not as complicated as it might seem.
What most folks like most about it - other than its awesome Ugh, Ugh appearance is the fact that you end up putting a lot more sweat equity into the Big Baby BBQ Smoker than "actual cash" equity. In fact, if you have a reasonably well-stocked scrap metal yard nearby, you should be able to put the bulk of the Big Baby together for a whole heck of a lot less than the Pros will charge to do it for you!
Big Baby Barbecue Smoker Resource
I've found the most complete write ups about how to build and use the Big Baby Barbecue Smoker at The Smoke Ring site. The Smoke Ring Barbecue Site is probably one of the best online BBQ information resources out there.
What I like most about the way the good folks at The Smoke Ring do their thing is that they tell you exactly where to find some of the more nifty yet hard to find parts for the Big Baby BBQ BBQ Smoker. Their suggestion of using Vogelzang International Corp is right on the mark.
Bottom line, if building a DIY Backyard BBQ Smoker is for you, then you really need to look into the Big Baby Barbecue Smoker.
