Stainless Steel Smoker Plans

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have been spending the last several years learning the trade of smoking from a cousin that had a big commerical smoker.  The only problem is now I would like to get into competition bbq.  The smoker I was using I am not able to use because of propane and electric.  Which leads me to this.  I want to build a smoker, but I would love to have one made out of stainless steel.  I found one online several months back that was insulated and homemade that I truly liked.  Can someone help me out on where to find some plans on building one?  I would like one big enough for about 4-6 butts and about 6-10 racks of ribs.  PLEASE HELP!!

Was it a horizontal reverse flow? Or was it a vertical box similar to what a small to med size frig looks like. 


If its the first then there is an awesome build on this site, its an all stainless unit but I think its bigger then you want.


If its the second, you have a couple choices to think about.


There is two major choices, a backwoods style which has the coals right below the cook area.

Then there is the stumps style which uses a charcoal chute, similar to the way an automatic dog feeder works.


I'm gonna take a guess that you were using a Southern Pride smoker based on that you said propane and electric.

               A very awesome smoker I may add.


For comps you can use electric for anything but the heat source.

And you can use propane to light your coals, such as a burner and coal starter.Or a weed burner. So long as you aren't using it as the heat source.


If you can't find much info on the stumps, shoot me a PM and I will get ya a link or two.

First of all welcome to the forum, head on over to roll call and introduce yourself.  Secondly, how many $1700 barrels have you sold so far?  Seems just a bit high for a barrel, even a stainless one.
