Have researching smokers for awhile, the more i looked the more I wanted to spend.
I decided to take that money, buy some materials and scrap parts from old grills etc.
Well Im up to about $400 in materials!
The smokers dimensions are approx 30"w x 21"d x 65" tall and its on 2 1/2" industrial casters!
First day of build was June 28th 2011, I worked on it off and on about 4 to 5 days.
If I could have worked on non stop, I could have completed it in about 30 hrs
Here was day 1
Day 3 interior
Diamond plate on inside of door just to show off.
Sprayed the shelving and walls with food grade silicon spray.
Then on July 3rd 2011 with the interior done I fired up the gas burner in the bottom, put some Hickory in a large cake pan and made smoke, LOTS OF SMOKE! went with a 4 hr burn and raised the temp up and done 150-300 checkin the unit for any signs of stress! cant wait to dress up the outside some more but first Im gonna smoke some meat for tomorrows Independence Day celebrations!
Friends and neighbors aware of the new smoker are already placing orders.
Guess I'll have to quit the day job of buildin full size house and go to buildin smokehouses!
