Nice! So is that a two in one unit?

1. Direct heat (propane) grill on the right.
2. Smoke box on the left.

Or is that right area the firebox?

Either way it looks like you will be having some fun very soon.

Nope, the propane is for the Weber "Q" that's sitting on a table beside the Bandera. Firebox is on the right and left is the smoking chamber.

Nice Bandera. I used to own one and man, can you fit a lot of food in one of those things. There is a discussion group on Yahoo specifically for the Bandera that might interest you - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Bandera/. Do some hunting there and you'll find a couple of mods that will help improve the performance for you.

Have fun with it and be sure to share some pics and recipes here as you do!

I like vegetarians. Some of my favorite foods are vegetarians.

DarkRubiTJ, yours is definately a lot better looking than mine. I just saw on for sale in Atlanta, GA, said it was used only twice, for $250.

I took "before" pictures of mine last night...while the wife was laughing. We'll snap a few when it's done. Hopefully there will be a difference. She just doesn't know a good 'project' when she sees one. Got her nose it a book all day long. :?

Scott, Just joined that group today to browse some of the mods. Thanks!

Sweet! Maybe I can show my wife one of those, and replace my make-shift unit I currently own.

Nice. Any particular reason you went with a verticle smoke chamber as oppossed to a horizontal smoke chamber?

Enjoy!

Very, very nice rig DarkRubiTJ. Way to go, Look's brand new!

I know you'll get lot's of good use and enjoyment out of it.

Working at Home Depot you probably already know this, but be careful not to fire that thing up too close to the vinyl siding.... it WILL melt it :cry: . YB2
I'll eat anything that won't eat me first !!!

RichD-I went vertical more out of lust and space considerations. I first saw a Bandera at Acadmey when I lived in Houston. I had a Black Diamond at the time but fell in love with the Bandera. I live in a condo and outside storage space is limited and the vertical gives me more bang for the buck in less space than a horizontal would. Plus I could get this for the same price a Silver Smoker would be.

BBcue-Z seasoning is on the schedule for middle of the week following your fantastic instructions.

YB2 always careful with fire, Little Old lady next door always freaks out when I fire something up. I have a large open space right off the patio and so I wheel it out there about 30 yards off of the 4th green. When I get a west wind the cow pasture pool players always look over in envy. :lol:
