THIS IS A DESIGN THAT I ACTUALY SAW ON HERE. I MADE A FEW ADJUSTMENTS. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK, OR WHAT I COULD DO TO MAKE IT BETTER
This is the new combination smoker/grill I made. Not quite finished yet. The smaller cinder block area is the FIRE BOX, its where you put your wood/coal. The hole seen on the outside of it will have a steel door with air adjustments. This is where you'll load the wood and adjust air/temp. There is also a hole between the firebox and the main cooking area which is the larger cinder block area with the grates ontop. The hole allows the heat to flow into the food area and cook/smoke the food with indirect heat. The larger cooking area will also have a lid
It will be all cemented together, and I'm putting creek stone all over the outside of it, and having a steel lid made for top of cooking area with a smoke stack, and I'm also making a lid for the fire box, also steel door on outside of firebox to adjust heat and load more wood.

Main cooking area. This area will also have racks close to the ground inside to put charcoal/wood should you choose to grill instead of smoke
