Had I been asked last week what I thought this contraption was, I would have had to say I had no idea. Or hang on, is it a mailbox?
But of course, now I know it is a state-of-the-art Matthew-made 'Texas-Barbecue-Smoker'.
Note the various levers that must be in just such a position for the best result.
Our smoker had its inaugural run on Sunday evening.
