In terms of posting, I haven't felt like I had a lot to add, given the level of expertise on this site. I was in Louisiana for about two weeks and took a few cooking classes in New Orleans. Brought back about 10lbs of cajun sausages and andouille. Made a great red beans and rice, gumbo, and bread pudding when I got home last week. Today I made a creole style tomato bisque. Last Satuday I experimented with a cajun pizza using a creole tomato base along with spicy smoked pork sausage, green pepper, onion, mozzarella, and chedar. Tasty, but a work in progress. I have also been trying to improve my baguettes.
Great looking food, look forward to seeing the results. With the air vents down low you should be able to do some smoking with the addition of a inner door of sort, against the inner reveal raise from the floor to your desired smoke level. Sort of like when I smoke my turkey.

Here is the post, click on the blue arrows to see the pics of my temporary set up and turkey results:

Thumbs up Re: 36" build in Tallahassee - AKA Bruce's Folly

G'day Champ
Wow that outer oven doors a beaut!
Done the usual trick myself and I'm still using the ply MK 1 outer door. Cause it an't broke I don't fix it. But after seeing yours, I might try to get MK 11 complete before the ply suffers from the wheather .
How about the colour of the dome. That really softerned over the time and nows a really nice earthy colour. Certainly compliments the stainless of the chimney and door
Regards dave

KB,

Great looking bird. I had forgotten that thread. Hard to believe a year has mostly passed. Look forward to see your plans for this year. With the snake, do you simply light one end and let it burn? Bruce

Hi Dave,
I pass on the compliment to my brother-in-law. Did you ever come up with a way to lock in the outer door? Bruce

G'day Bruce
No Bruce I've not tried to bolt the door to the entrance. Current method appears to work well enought and has pasted a couple of storms without problems. It's just basic a hunk of really heavy 3x3 ironbark with a brick on it. Just bolted to the back of the door and it's just sits in the oven. Its on an angle so it the weight draws the top of the door hard to the oven entrance face.
I really should give it at least one more good storm really and if it doesn't become a missile and build something a built it of something more substantial
Regards dave
