My Smokehouse

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

Here is my smokehouse. I did extensive research before choosing the wood used. I never go above 180* and can hang 200 lbs of sausage in here. It was propane but now pellet fired. You can see the pellet hopper to the left covered.

How do you keep it so clean.  You put a lot of work into that baby and I know you get some good food out of it.  How about another pick of the upper portion.  I am interested in seeing how much venting you have and I want to see some smoke scar on it.


Good Job,

Here are more pics of my smokehouse. You can see the vent here good. I went with a 6" collar with damper that is reduced to 4" to an elbow and straight up.





I use 2 large stainless steel pans, One for wood chips if needed and the other for water. These sit over the firepot.







Here you can see the top left corner of the vent.




Some of the pellet auger system.










Hi Jeanie, I thought i might have seen you on here PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Some how I missed this post as well. I have always been told to be leery of using particle board for the inside of a smoker. Did you notice any off smell or anything when you first fired it up. But I guess if you are smoking at lower temps like you said you probably aren't getting hot enough to have any issues. It's nice having all of that room isn't it.

Nice smoke house that thing big enough to have gas mask training in.

Thats a Traeger hopper auger fire pot assembly from one of my pellet poopers.


I did tons of research before using the press board and found that you do not get any leaching at the temps i can maintain. I never go above 180 with it. I have seen smokehouses made with plywood that are just about charred inside and they say they have no weird taste. Infact there is a smoke sausage store in LA that uses 3 of the ply smokers.


When i built the smokehouse i used a turkey burner with a SS pan and did a season smoke for 20 hours empty.


So far i have had 200lbs hanging in it at one time.
