I wanted to ask the experts on here if my idea was sound or had any major failings.
I need more space for cold smoking. I'm thinking of buying a metal shed (weather sealed) and using the cold smoke generators I already have (or just an old fashioned pile of sawdust(. What I want to do is buy the below metal shed, place it on concrete, rodent proof it, air seal it, install an adjustable air intake at the bottom and install a (adjustable flow) chimney.
Will this be OK in terms of health or common sense? The heat in there will be under 20 degrees C and I wont be putting the smoldering sawdust near the paneled walls, so I don't think there will be a health risk from the metal. It also wont be in direct sunlight
The second question I wanted to ask was about the chimney. If I attached ducting and elevated it so it terminates about 3 meters up the side of a wall, would the air pressure be enough to draw enough air through the shed? I'm thinking as you get higher the air pressure is a bit lower and thus if you have a high chimney, you can get better air flow?
This is for air flow but also to maybe reduce the smoke smell by elevating the exhaust to nearer the roof and it can blow away
Appreciate any help you can give. I will post photos when I am done
