Hello all... I've been doing a whole hog on a cinder block for about four years now. They turn out great but I'm looking to upgrade. A little bit. I have this tank that was given to me. It's 7 feet long and 3 feet 9 inches wide. I'm looking to keep the build very cheap and primitive. Something like this. Some concerns I have would be about the main chamber door (across the top... not pictured) being so big it warps. Also, clearance from the fire box to the cooking surface. I have no experience building a smoker. I really need to get it right the first time. At least, mostly. I could use some advice! The hog roast is Oct. 4th so I feel like I need to get on it. By the way.. if you're in the Northwest Arkansas area. You're invited. The more the merrier. Heck...if you're in Alaska and want to make the trip... you're invited. I would love to meet some SMF folks in person. That would be awesome! Thanks in advance. This is an awesome site!
