Hi...from Oklahoma

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 

I found your site while searching for information on smokehouse designs.
There is so much good information here, I've been too busy reading to post an introduction. smile.gif

I am a backyard smoker. I live in the country and raise pork, beef, chickens. (Horses too, but not to eat)
My main cooker is a 7' horizontal (5' chamber and 2' fire box). It will hold plenty of meat and up to about a 75lb whole pig. It is a homemade smoker...I received it as a gift  and have been very happy with it.

Anything bigger gets cooked on a cinderblock pit or in an underground oven.
I have just finished building a smokehouse for cold smoking....in the past I have used the barrel and trench method. The new smokehouse is 6'7" tall, 4' wide and 3' deep. If I can figure out how to post pictures, I will.redface.gif

I have two smaller charcoal grills and a fairly large propane grill. I also grill on the horizontal pit.
Cooking with wood is my favorite way to go, but I still love the charcoal grills and the propane grill....I think I just like to smoke and grill, doesn't matter what I use.

Sorry this is so long! I'm not really that windy, I'm just happy to see this forum. smile.gif

Now you made a mistake.

I want to know how you set that up. I am sure its very simple but I would love some more shots of it.
Blueprints would be nice as well PDT_Armataz_01_29.gif

I love to try a new way of doing things.

I can do small pigs on the cinderblock pit.....just add another row of blocks and tin on top to enclose it for larger pigs.

Here is a side view with the top on.....

I usually put something in the drip pan on the bottom, this one has shiner bok and dry rub...
