Making a drum smoker, having a couple probs..

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

We have been building a smoker out of 55gal drum. We are using a turkey fryer propane burner for heat. We have been able to consistently run what ever temp we want so far. Our snag at the moment is after about 20 mins the wood chunks catch on fire. We are basically going with a gas, cabinet style system. The wood tray is 4" from the burner. I know this mat be a little vague, but any ?'s of suggestions would be vary welcomed. Pics below.

Well , I am no expert , but since no one else has chimed in I would ask what you have the wood chunks in....maybe you just need a cast iron skillet or chip box to keep the flames at bay.
One suggestion I would make is to send a PM to Daveomak ( moderator) . He has forgotten more about smoker building than I ever knew.....but he is going to want pictures of the inside of that beast....and dimensions.
