I have added some pics of the finished product check them out
So I have been building my smoker and have most of it complete. I will have to get pictures latter. Anyhow my food warmer had only one wall/single wall so I placed a second skin on the outside, I used diamond plate, I think it looks pretty cool. I found some racks from a camp chef vault smoker which work great I can get two racks on each shelf. I have eight racks on four shelves about 8 inches apart. All shelves are adjustable.
I am considering putting an insulation in the walls I have about 1 and 3/8 of an inch gap between the walls. Any suggestions on a inexpensive material and where to buy... I have bought a 3 inch exhaust pipe with a dampener and I built a cap for it to keep the rain out. A question here is do I mount it flush with the top of the unit or should I lower the pipe several inches into the unit. I thought this would keep the heat at a better constant.......Not sure tell me what you think. And what about the height of the exhaust pipe does that matter.
I also need to drill or cut some air intake holes, I was thinking of having 3 or 4 3/4 inch ball valves. Then I could adjust the air intake as needed. Would three or four be enough or two much, or maybe a different size might be better.. Tell me if you have a better idea, I would appreciate it..... before I go and start cutting and drilling.
