I Started a Smoke House!

Discussion in 'Smoke Houses' started by bigdean65, Jul 27, 2016.

  1. I started a smoke house build not long ago... I was inspired by some of the great looking smoke house's I have seen on here!  [​IMG]

    I actually started last fall, but due to some health issues and new job responsibilities this got off to a slow start.  I am now back on track and it is going well.

    For the exhaust, think about side wall vents....   something like these......

  12. That is EXACTLY what I have been considering!  [​IMG]

    I originally considered some sort of chimney, but have been leaning more towards the vents.

    In my opinion, they appear to be a lot more functional.

    Thanks!!!  [​IMG]

    They also keep creosote from dripping on your food when mounted on the walls.....   That's a good thing...

  14. I hadn't thought about that... good to know! 

    Thanks!!! [​IMG]  

    I think I am going to put two of the vents in... one on the front and one on the back. 

    I figure with two... I should be able to adjust the airflow a little better with them being adjustable.
