Hey Bro,

Obviously your a Kiwi with a name "Porknpuha" .

Next year I will probably build a smoker and parrilla (Argentine grill) set up similar to yours in my back yard.

I will be following this build.

Hi Humdinger,
I think a couple of fail safe butts would be the best option.
Obviously once doors are on we have to tinker with heat and seals on doors etc.

Probably going to do a couple of dry runs on seasoned hickory to get a feel for it.

Looking good.
On my bucket list to build one.

Been busy and procratinating. However, here is the latest.




Insulated th roof and started to finish the roof with cedar.

I have an insulated cedar door so thought that would match nicely.

Just got finished,

I know it took a long time my few excuses involve currently having a 3 and 1 yr old and I built this at my father in laws as a gift to him. Approx 3.5 hrs away from where I live. But......... finally....... finished.
