I am attempting to build my own cold smoker, I am at the design stage of my build and I plan
on building a portable unit that I can take with me, when its time for me to move, so it will
have to be big enough for me to be able to smoke a couple of hams at a time plus some bacon
and salmon, it must have a minimal 3 racks a couple of hanging poles to hang
my ham .
My wood working skills and knowledge of tools is good, I want to do this right the first time out .
So any advice would be awesome.
What size and dimensions of the smoker ?keep in mind it needs to be portable.
What type of wood can I use to make the smoker ?
How to control the amount of smoke that enters and leaves the smoker ?
How long should the pipe that carries the smoke from the burner to the smoker be ?
What type of pipe can I use, that carries the smoke ? can I use galvanize or copper ?
I will post a picture of the size and dimension of the smoker I was planning on building
in the next day , let me know what ya all think .
