I am new to this smoker thing, i have decided to build my first RF/ or any smoker for that matter. I have been looking for a few months for a propane tank and picked a tank up for free this last weekend, I'm trying to find out what size this thing is. its about 6 foot long and around 2 foot wide give or take a few inches. Its pretty big and the more i look at it the more perfect it looks for what i want. My father in law and Brother in law bother have big smokers and they look at me like I'm stupid cause I'm building an RF , " telling me that it wont work" cant wait to prove them wrong!!
Like i said I'm new to this and I'm kinda building this off what everyone has talked about on this forum. i know i want to do a square shape fire box, but i guess right now I'm trying to figure out the size of everything so i know what i need to get for material. any help or web sites would be gladly appreciated. What do you all think about buying blue prints online, i kinda feel like i really don't need to do that, seems like there is alot of helpful people and experienced people here.
