Freddie 2 (Filing Cabinet Smoker) Makes his debut!

November 9th, 2009

23rd March 2009, Blog rebuild November 2009…

We have built a new smoker – ‘Freddie 2’,  and what a smart fellow he is.  Freddie 1 has really seen better days – we have been smoking in him for nearly three years now and he has done us proud but it is time to go to that big office in the sky!

Freddie 2 is a completely different design of filing cabinet.  Georgina says she should do a PhD on filing cabinet designs – because we have never found two the same! Anyway my friend Alan and I spent the afternoon converting Freddie 2.  Have a look! First we took all the drawers out and gave it a good scrub.

Then Alan and I got down to work – Well Alan did any way!

When all of this was finished Freddie 2 was looking really good. But the big question is – will he smoke?  As a lot of you will know there is no such thing as easily building a fire place and a chimney.  They can be notoriously difficult to get to draw properly.  So lets have a go….”There she blows!!”
