On your way to a nice homebuilt. Don't forget to post the pics as you go along.

I am going to have to see pics to understand what you are doing. You say it is going to be 2x2x3. Is your smoker already 2x2x3 or are you going to make this box to add to your existing smoker? When you say your going to line your smoker does that mean the bottom rusted out on you and you got to reline the damage? You see what I mean? It is confusing.

Sorry I misunderstood you when you said wood smoker. I was thinking a stick burner (metal) smoker. I understand better now what you are trying to do. It should work out for you.

I'm using a hotplate and wood chips

Then you'll need a vent in the top somewhere to release the smoke and maybe something small in the lower side to let in a little fresh air, electric unit's don't need a lot of air.

If not putting a water pan in you'll need some kind of deflector thus 2 door's would be a good idea!!wink.gif
