Looking for some feedback as I progress through my project.
Phase # 1 - Completed:
I covered about 400 sqft in cement, with a 10% grade, then added saltillo tiles on top of the cement, added planters to the lemon trees and plastered the planters with stucco+tiles.
Phase # 2 - In Progress:
Add cinder blocks to Smoker and Wood Burning Grill. Below is the first level I added today. The left is where the smoker will be placed. I'm planning on adding an air vent on the second level but I'm not sure what kind I should add. I could use some suggestions. Should the first level of the smoker be completely cover in cinder blocks and filled in with cement, in order to keep the heat off the floor?
Phase # 3 - Add Wood Shelf:
As an accent around the middle of the smoker.
Phase # 4 - Add Prep table and sink:
Attached to the right of the Wood Grill. I building this separately due to the fact that I haven't decided which type of sink to buy and how much space will be left for a prep table if any.
Phase # 5 - Stucco the exterior:
Phase # 6 - Paint:
1) Should the first level of the smoker be completely cover in cinder blocks and filled in with cement, in order to keep the heat off the floor?
2) I'm planning on purchase a camp fire grill and using it as the backbone of my Wood Grill. Is it more cost effective to buy the parts separately?
3) Are there any pre-made doors for the smoker? I'm planning on building my own but would consider purchasing one.
4) Should I line the inside of my smoker with fire bricks all the way up or just where the fire is in direct contact?
