Hello everyone my name is Dan and i`m from Massachusetts. I just discovered this site and thought I would say hello. This pic is my homemade smoker I made and I am smoking a 5 lb chicken in it right now I am using charcoal and wet apple chips. This is the first time I have ever tried smoking ''meat that is" so I have no clue how it will turn out!
A few specs about my smoker it is 12" stainless steel with removable end caps and racks for easy cleaning, the bottom chamber has a 6" opening at the top to add charcoal, wood chips/chunks and help regulate air. I made it out of leftover ductwork from the jobsite I was on, it was never attached to any machinery so there is no worry about any hazardous chemicals in the pipe. I was looking at a pile of fittings and pipe at work one day and told my foreman there is a smoker in here I just have to find it and this is what I came up with! Let me know what you think of it I appreciate any feedback on it. I hope to learn more a lot more about smoking and not gain too much weight in the process!
