still gathering parts, and learning about smoker building. I got a good start. still have to sand down the tank, (had a sand blaster lined up but it had issues when I got there) then I can start piecing it together. I found a great local guy that gave me most of the steel and even cut out my vent and bent my fire box for me.

 

the baffle plate is 10 gauge, a bit thicker than 1/8th inch, the box is 1/8th inch steel, so I will brace it up a bit. thicker might have been better, but this was free.

 

The FB will be 10x10 inches

 

Got some thick walled chrome exhaust pipe for the chimney

 

Got some mirror finish stainless I had laying around I want to use to line the smoker door with.

 

I even ordered some pyroceram fire glass (5x5 inches) to put in a small window in the FB.

 

my buddy bent the baffle using two bends so the grease will flow to the center at the low end and I will rig up some kind of catch can under it.

 

I got some small barrel/pin hinges with the grease zerts in the end as well for the smoker door.

 

I am wanting something small enough I can load it and take camping if I want to .

 

I have thick aluminum square tubing laying around, so I may do aluminum legs to cut down on the weight.

 

any hints, suggestions, snide remarks?
