Good evening SmokingMeat community!
I've been lurking for a bit for some direction with my smoker build and finally signed up.
I've acquired some material to build a smoker. As of now, I've been using a 22.5" Weber Kettle to smoke and feel like it's time to upgrade.
So far, I have:
- 26 Gallon Compressor Tank in GREAT shape
- 10 Gallon Portable Compressor Tank (I think...taken from measurements)
- Old Steel Fish Tank Stand
- Pneumatic Wheels
I played around with some quick illustrations of what I'm thinking of. I'm just not sure where to place intake vents, dampers, grease drain pipes, placement of the firebox (under the cooking tank or off to the side), or where to mount the BBQ temp controller I plan to buy with your suggestions.
I used Feldon's BBQ calculator I found via this site, here are the results with my material:
I plan to order steel tube in the sizes I need as stated from the BBQ calculator.
A friend of mine is a welder and offered to help me out because I have no experience although I am handy
Your input and suggestions are appreciated!
Here's some pics...
