BUILD COMPLETED! Pics Start - Finish

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Thanks to all here for your input.  I tested this unit over the weekend and it all worked pretty flawless on the first try.  Here are a few pictures from start to finish on the build.  

 

 

The start of by Cook Chamber.  Made with re-used 3" insulated cooler panels.  

 

 

Cook chamber is basically done here expect for the RF Baffle plate.

 

 

This is the Fire Box.  Made with 3/16" plate.  Interior grating is about 4" above the bottom.

 

 

Here is one of the SS stands that hold by cooking trays.   

 

 

This 1/4" SS Mesh is what i used for my cooking trays..

 

 

This angle will support the RF Baffle plate in the Cook Chamber.

 

 

 

 

Here is the final product.  I used a SS plenum style chimney with about 6" extended into the CC.  To season the smoker i lit some charcoal in the FB and placed a couple pieces of maple and oak wood on top to get some flame going.  in 15 min i was over 200F in the CC.  I closed the damper on the chimney to see if it would heat up faster, and it did.  Once it got to 260F I dampened upper intake and lower intake in FB to virtually closed and opened the chimney damper a bit.  It held at about 240 - 260F for over 3 hours with the initial bit of Fuel i put in the FB.  I know it doesn't look as pretty as some, but i can't be happier with how the initial run went...

Looks great and a lot of cooking space! Any plans for wheels? I'm guessing you have something around to move it with.icon14.gif

I think it looks great! I would have to find one of those Ice Bag cooler logos for it. I think it would be perfect! maybe the neon sign for the back side of the top Flashes 24 hr Ice or whatever they say....LOL

 

Looks to me like a great size too.

 

I'm impressed.
