Complete smoker novice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys

Just thought I'd share my build with you.

Completely new to smoking, but really got the buzz for it with the amount of new "smoking bbq" joints opening over here in the UK.  The other day I noticed somebody on FB had built their own smoker, having no idea about actual smoking, I didn't even realize people did this, of course, much more popular over in the states with you guys than over here in the UK.  So anyway. I thought I'm going to have a go at that, so I prep'ed some material this week and got on with building a box type reverse flow. 

I have taken a lot of calculations into account with this smoker, and tried to find a happy medium, their are so many conflicting theories I was giving myself a head acre and my eyes were bleeding!

Now I know some things aren't going to be right, I've already dropped a few clangers along the way and had to improvise, so the smoker doesn't exactly look how I wanted, but hey, its a big learning curve.  I realized that its deeper than it really needs to be, and I would of angled the front door opening now doing it again.  But as long as I get some relative success with it I'll be happy, as I then I know what to improve on my next build.

Please be!
