Started with a sturdy cardboard box I got from work. Opened the flaps and hot glued and taped the corners with aluminum tape.
Got it all sealed up on the inside.
Traces the cardboard tube I'll be using for the chimney. The tube is from a roll of shrink wrap we use at work.
It has a 3" I.D.
Cut the hole using a very sharp utility knife.
The tube fits good.
Now to cut out the area for the little house the Amaz-N-Pellet Smoker will sit in.
Pellet smoker should fit nicely.
Had to add an extension the the flap I cut for the little house.
Cut out the sides for the little house.
It does fit nicely.
Closed up the opening a tad.
Lined the inside of the little house with aluminum tape.
It will get a little hot in there. Not over 451ºF though. So we should be OK.
A little more tape around the perimeter.
Should work well.
Slides right out with ease.
A little silicone to seal up the handles.
We attach the tube last. It would be a pain building the rest if I did that first.
Got it squared up with some shimmage.
Filled the cracks with hot glue. Inside and out.
Taped it real good with aluminum tape.
She's ready for some smoke.
Which will be someone else's pleasure when it is given to one lucky contestant at the 2nd Annual SMF NC Gathering April 26-28th.
I do not know what it will take to win it, or what you'll be a contestant in, but we will make something up.
Thanks for watching.
