First smoking project!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a crude design for a basic cold smoker I want to run by the more experienced smokers out there.


Basically its a 5ftx1.5ft box with no bottom and a chimney

and the smoke source is dry/damp wood chips in a paint can on a camp stove or a hot plate.


I have seen similar designs all over the internet and they all seemed to work.

I plan on smoking some pork belly.


I am a beginner smoker so any and all advice is appreciated .

Thats quite large. I just took apart my 2x4ft plywood box and built a carsiding type from you tube.

Before you determine size , find the racks and build to the racks. I built mine, then I found racks, that were 1/2 inch too big, so I had to take it apart to make it bigger I decided to change it up.

I too want to smoke some belly which was the whole purpose of this cold smoker.


Smoke happy!
