Hi guys! Like the title sort of transpires, I'm new to the whole smoking world.
I did my homework by looking on internet and came up with the conclusion that horizontal offset smoker would be the ideal cost/result compromise.
The intent is to have the smoker at our cottage in Quebec where the summer temperature ranges from 20 - 30 C (68 - 86 F). No electrical power will be available for the smoker so I'll end up using wood or charcoal for the combustion. Another variable in the project is that our lake is full of brook tout and I would like to be able to cold smoke 'em. So havin a mix of hot/cold offset smoker would be ideal.
I'm looking for directions to start the build. I was planning to use the typical 45 GL metal drum with a 1/3 smaller drum for the fire chamber.
Thanks in advance for you useful tips.
