I recently decided to build a smoker for the first time. I have been doing some research into them a little but just have a couple of food safety questions.
I am wanting my first smoker to be as cheap as possible for my first build. The smoker that I had decided on building was double barrel smoker. Mostly I have found some plans have gotten most of the parts for free. Recently my grandmother has giving me an old Woodchief wood burning stove. I had the idea for using the stove as my firebox and just using a barrel on top for the cooking.
I wasn't sure if the firebricks inside the stove would be safe for food cooking. Or let alone the stove its self. I do plan on trying to clean the stove out as much as possible. Does anyone have an experience with this. I did see a few other people talking about wood stove fireboxes but no mention of the fire bricks.
