New to the forum and relatively new to smoking. I've personally never smoked anything on my own, but I constantly help my friends when they cook. So, I decided to take a stab at it and first need to build a smoker. A friend of mine wanted me to build him a smoker so I may end up selling this to him, but who knows, I may like it enough to keep it and build another to sell.
So far I have a 60 gallon air tank that I picked up for $100 (still had motor and compressor attached that I will sell), $200 in the form of a 4'x8' 1/4" steel plate, and a little more money in material to build my own hinges and some thermometers, latches, and Nomex gaskets.
I used the Feldon BBQ/Pit builder calculator to get all my numbers but I won't bother posting them at the moment.
So far this is what I have...
