Thread Starter 

Hi Guys.

 

Attached is a basic concept for the smoker I want to build. I am totally new to smoking so I am after some feed back in regards to the design and weather or not it will work

Looking good. Id take the fire box as tall as the smoking chamber. Drop a steel plate in the middle and you got an outdoor over and smoker

Looks nice but why is the Gap so high? You may have a cool spot below the gap. Check out the Calculator below to make sure your firebox size is on par with the chamber and all the other important stuff is measured properly...JJ

Where in Australia are ya. Looks good, I think it will work well. How will you access teh firebox to fill it with wood etc.

Hi.
Im on the Mornington Peninsular in Victoria. The idea with the fire box is to have a cast iron door on it that can be partially closed for smoking and wide open if i want to use it as a fire place.
I placed the smoke gap at the top because I thought it wouldn't work at the bottom.

PS. I would like to be able to cold smoke as well as hot.
