Smoker Door?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I am strongly considering a cinder block design but I am having trouble locating a door for the smoker. I have seen several examples of what appears to be a cast iron or steel door with a built in thermometer. Does anyone know where I can find a door like this ? I've checked with my local home improvement stores with no luck.

Have not seen it. Yer not using bourbon in yer water pan, are ya? LOL!

Call a local steel supplier and get a chunk of 1/4 inch plate. A couple drill holes and come up with a latch. Another hole..insert thermometer.

hammb, first off welcome to SMF,as far as your door goes you could go to a local fabricator with the diamentions you need and have it built.

here is a cinder block one that I'm building. Then door is in the metal cover of firebox. I haven't finished it yet so I can't tell yet how well it will work

Send a message to one of our new members by the name of "cowgirl". She's got a cinder block smoker that looks right nice! If I remember correctly, she accesses the hot side by removing a block or two and does not have a door. I think she'll be very helpful with your questions.

I'm not sure if you are building a hot smoker or a cold smoker, but the best bet IMO is to have one made to fit.

I use this simple cinderblock pit to hot smoke meat, whole pigs, briskets, turkeys, venison, etc.. I remove blocks from each end to add the hot coals and any wood chips.

I'm working on a cold smoker........have not got the firebox set up yet...

grantime, that's a nice one. Can't wait to see it finished!PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
