Wish I could take credit for the build but It's my brother that's done all the work, I just keep making suggestions and he comes up with the solution and puts it into practice.

Thanks, we've tried to think of everything, on the side is a vent with an adjustable flap to control the air intake......

 

There's also something similar on the chimney to control the smoke exhausting.

Hello.  Looks GREAT!  I don't know if I would want to get it dirty.  I might just sit back with a cold one and admire that thing for a while.  :icon_biggrin:  Good Job!

Made some alterations and think we finally got the temp to hold around 220/250f 

 

 

Alittle scruffy just now but making sure we can maintain a reasonable temp before painting it.

It is looking good Georgie

 

Is the fire now in the side bottle or still in the bottom of the main smoker? If it is in the side bottle you may want to put some high temperature lagging in the connecting pipe.

Thanks Wade, its possible to have the fire in either, we managed to get a temp of around 240 f with the fire in the side bottle and keep it there so it's looking like we are on the right track, last night we lit the fire in the main bottle and did some BBQing so seems we have something that is multi purpose, we just need to get some rope for the small door and we're good to go.

We had a pan of water on and it was almost to boiling, on the look out now for a kettle with a solid base.
