    I would think you should be able to easly pipe the smoke over from a seperate fire box.......

    I looked at those plans before I built mine. I would build your fire box outside and pipe the heat and smoke in using 3.5 or 4" duct. A fan would be a nice addition to keep things moving. Are you going electric or gas?

    The offset fire box will be my next mod, I have issues of creating smoke at low temps. My smoker holds temp so well the heater is hardly turning on.

    Hi Deud![​IMG]

    I'm not sure if mine is the kind of set up Chuck is interested in.
    The link you gave him shows a lot of good options.

    Mine works for me...........I'm happy.[​IMG]
  10. iam so happy to see the help so fast I posted the same post on some other sites iam a member of and they are still empty THANK YOU ALL . I have looked at alot of plans for this think I will use gas and chips I have a lot of wood and chips too but think gas is the way to go . Cowgirl I like your smoker and minichef your ideas are about what iam looking at the layout of my yard will let me put the draft pipe from the heat to smoke box under ground so I will use tile for it a lot like a true polish smoke house , iam not making this up look it up they have the best smoe houe around . Keep the help comming
  11. To all my new friends in the next couple of weeks I will be chipping up all the apple wood I can haul off if anyone is close to missouri or wants some a few lbs or as much as you want to pay shipping on let me know I have a guy who gave me permission to hit his prune pile.

    Chuck, one of our members (campi) has a similar set up. Seems to work great for him.
    I've used the trench method in the past....Not as fancy, but had no problems at all.

    Hope you take pictures for us.[​IMG]

    Nice offer on the wood.[​IMG]
  13. I think with the way me yard is it would work well but still looking now , I like the indirect heat mood cause iam use to it with my smoker pit . I want to get it built and running but holding out on the best plans to come about

  16. I did deliver miller beer and most of the inports too but now iam a pre salesman now lots better job same bennis little beer here and there. I think I have my plans set just got to have a friend who is in heating and cooling come by and look at the heat box plans with me and help me set up the wires in it .
