    I have decided to build my own smoker! I have no experience whatsoever when it comes to smoking... I just like the taste of smoked meat and fish and after several months googling and looking at all projects I have decided to give it a try.

    I have already created a CAD model based on various examples on the internet. It is a mix of many design and I really hope it will work out :)

    It will be a insulated RF vertical cabinet. Is these a shorter word for this design? It is based on a Backwood clone, 1" insulated walls, 2x2" ball valves for vents (one with BBQ Guru fan connection). I will try to upload information and pictures as I progress the build.

    3D model from CAD.

    Cutting of pipes today.

  2. It will be a nice one !!!

    It is unbelievable how much steel is needed for a build like this!

    I picked up the thermometer on my way home from the garage. 3" Tel-Tru as many recommends.

    This weekend I have cut all parts. Im using a Hypertherm CNC plasma for all sheet metal but it still takes a alot of time to get it done. Hopefully I can start to weld all parts together this week.

    Very nice set up.... CNC Plasma.... Hypertherm no less... I love my Hypertherm machine.... It's hooked up to my right arm.... I'm thinking it was my best purchase EVER........

    The plate with the holes.... Is that the door, and now you will roll it , after you roll the CC body ????? If so, that's sooooo COOL !!!! and blind weld holes drilled/cut already.....

    Please don't show your robotic welder while your SUPER SMOKER is being assembled.... That would drive me to checkin' out the jug in the closet..... then driving to your shop to watch....

    AWESOME !!!!!!

    Just got back from garage. My friend is gonna help me weld it later so I don´t melt it. Im not very skilled with the TIG. But he asked me if I could start to just roughly put it together since it´s what takes most time. Measuring, adjusting, measure some more, weld, cut, hammer.... weld :) Ill keep you updated as I progress.

    Here is some updates from last night. The "cage" is spot welded by me but now I will let my friend take over.

    I show some other parts since I know how it helped me when I was looking for my build. Later I will update with part numbers and sources, that is what helped me the most.

    Here is some parts that I will use. All of this stuff except the ball valve I have bought from USA. The gasket is almost impossible to find in Sweden. I found a company that could get it from Italy, and I had to buy 100 meters.

  16. Very Nice, I really like the way your are showing your parts

    A sample of the welds. The TIG spot welds I had done myself looked like MIG compared to this... 

    Next step is to attach all middle walls and then all inner. I will start this weekend :)

  18. Nice looking weld

    Is that spring handle also from the States?

    You can get some gaskets from Finland, there is a company that sells them from a roll. I think they have pretty good selection.

    They promised me to sell them also by the meter, if they had an opened roll on hand.

    Nice tools and skills [​IMG]
