    I have been wanting a yoder smoker or similar for ages now....I live in Ireland and we don't use or have a stockist for any type of smokers with side fire boxes...

    I have watched and drulled over American type smokers. I work in an engineering tool shop so I can build one myself.....and they are all round which makes fabrication costly.

    So......I will copy the design, but in a hexagon shape....I can buy the 8mm sheet steel, water jet cut to size and weld the panels together.....should make all fabrication easier...

    What ye think?

    I think we'll be watching! Post pics!

    There are some calculators here for size of firebox vs. cooking chamber vs. intake and exhaust dimensions, etc.
