Inherited Homemade Smokehouse

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 


Just wondering if any tips and or recipes for this type of smoker. My dad built it and passed away. I ate many items he smoked in it but never saw the meat in process. Miss him a lot.

Is the brick firebox attached to the smoke house with an underground ductwork ???   Got pictures ??   

 

Pics of inside the smokehouse would be cool also...  and inside the Firebox...

 

Nice looking setup....  I see the exhaust vent above the door...  That's the best place for the exhaust...  Your dad knew what he was doing..

 

What meats did he smoke ??  What do you remember about the finished product.....

Sorry to hear how you got the smokehouse,but it looks like a great smoker! I also would love to see more pics!

I would think the best way to start is small fires till you got a clue how it works a little practice and you'll be golden.

Man, that looks like the Holy Grail of smokers! The real thing. We'd all love to see more of it.
Sorry to hear about your Dad. With the way life moves so fast, when they're gone we realise how much they meant to us. I'll bet if you fire it up and look out the corner of your eye you'll see him standing there smiling....

THANKS for all the interest!  What should I smoke first???? Cute piggie weathervane!!  And a pig on front door so it's not mistaken for an outhouse!

Thanks for all the kind comments - it warms my heart to hear such compliments of my dad's fine craftmanship!  Bittersweet but I know he would LOVE to see me smoke something and get use out of it!!

as said above... sorry to hear of your lose ... he will be watching over ya when you fire it up and have a big smile on his face... I suggest you invest in a set of Maverick 732 thermometers to use in it... they will help tremendously in monitoring your temps in the smokehouse....

I, too, am sorry about your dad.  That is one VERY nice smoke house he built.  Once you get it figured out, I'm guessing you'll be extremely pleased with it.

Those pipe ends looking things... are they capped where the caps can be removed for more air circulation..   Look like it...

I'm saying that's a dandy smoker...

I'm thinking shoulder butt 'til you get the hang of it. The sky's the limit after that....

That's super cool! I agree we need to see smoke!

Sorry for your loss.

I think I would fire it up at least once without anything in it.

Let her clear her throat, get used to how it heats up and levels off.

Have fun, that's why he built it.

Keep in mind pictures are good things.
