Homework assignments in college rarely result in delicious food, but that’s what happened during the 2013/14 spring semester at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School.
It all started with Director of Food Service Jerry Odle’s dream.
Odle wanted a smoker. A spacious one, with room for brisket, burgers and more.
“I gave a very rough drawing and an idea to Steve Merz,” the instructor of Drafting and Design Technology, Odle recalled. Hours of research and practice, combined with a heartfelt desire for tasty smoked meats expressed by SCCC/ATS director of food service Jerry Odle, resulted in a smoker beyond all his hopes.
