New Member here from SW WA. Constructing a cedar smoker and looking for advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
First I'll post a few pics of the build so far. My questions are regarding decent air flow and and electric vs propane. As of now, I am constructing a 6 inch vent pipe up through the top with a damper. air flow vs temp control is where im stuck. Anyways here are the pics of what I have so far. almost finished cosmetically (roof, soffit, and trim) then comes the important stuff like temp control and smoke flow. The pitched roof is just for looks (boxed in) with detachable top so im needing to heat approximately 3ftx4ftx7ft. I left about 3 feet on the bottom for ample burner space but not sure what route to go. Also undecided on how to get the best air flow for smoke circulation. I'm waaayyyy over budget so I need this thing to work to the best of its ability! I used to build custom homes for a living so my attention to detail is a little overwhelming sometimes {and pricey in cedar;)} Any info is greatly appreciated
