I have been using a vertical 2 door LPG smoker for about 2 years. I have used this thing like crazy. I have been pondering a brick smoker. I have an old Natural Gas grill that the body/shell is rusted out so I purchased a new one. I was thinking about using the old burner portions of the grill as a heat source for a brick smoker. I have been searching the Internet for about a month and have not seen any NG smokers out there. I understand that it burns at a lower temp than LPG. I am also going to incorporate my new NG grill into the brick structure.
I was going to basically make a bigger brick version of my metal smoker. My concerns are if the burner would burn to hot and how hard it would be to control the temps. Any input would be welcome. Pros and cons.
