Hello everyone, longtime lurker, recently joined because I am going overkill by building a smokehouse. For the amount of smoking I do, it probably isn't necessary, but my wife said I could, and I've got plenty of room in my yard, so I figured why the heck not. I used inspiration from atcnick's build, and have come up with a few adaptations, but didn't really plan much out, just sort of started working on it, tackling issues/design plans as I got to them. So, I figured it was time to ask some of the more experienced folks for suggestions, or to tell me where I've gone completely wrong. Hopefully less of the latter, as I'm already a little ways into the build and kind of committed to some things! Since this is going to be a bit long, I'll break it up into a few different posts. Let the fun & f-ups begin! EDIT 09/07/2016: Well, one thing I tried to do was keep track of the materials that went into building this. Not really sure why. A bit so I could keep tabs on how much I spent. A bit in case someone asked if I could give them help building one. A bit for my OCD tendencies. With that in mind, here is a link to my google spreadsheet. It has the item, quantity, cost, subtotal on one page, then I listed a description of things on the second page along with where I used it, and where I got it from whenever possible. If anyone has questions or wants to know more, just let me know.
