Built in brick Silver smoker?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Has anyone converted a smoker with wheels to a built in model? Like people do with gas grills, building a brick base around it?

I'm currently having some landscaping done and thinking it would be a nice addition. Just build a brick base for the drum unit, leaving the sides open.

If you have any photos of one that was done I would love to see them. Any comments about this idea, good or bad??

you better get a heavy cover or use a much nicer pit than the silver or in four or fives years when its burnt out you'll be breaking down a perfectly good wall

Yes, I'd have a cover made for it. I was also thinking about bolting the smoker to the brick, so it could be removed for replacement or whatever.

Some all thread secured into the brick and a few holes in the smoker bottom and I'd be set. The brick would be more of a stand, with the smoker bolted on the top.

Sure would like to know if it's been done before.

I don't know what your budget is but if you wanted something that you wouldn't have to worry about replacing, I'd go with a Lang 48 Patio with no frame and build that into your patio.

Hey Dave,

That is a nice unit! My budget involves my Free silver smoker I got from a buddy. It's in great shape with no rust aside from the slight surface rust on the fire box.

So I am looking to use mine for this project.

I understand, just thought I'd throw it out there. biggrin.gif

Believe me, I understand you on the budget thing. Otherwise there would be a Lang Patio 48 in my signature pic instead of a Brinkmann Smoke N Pit.wink.gifbiggrin.gif

You could try it... remember though that most folk do the brick/gas grill using stainless or enameled steel that resists the effects of weather much better than these smokers. I suspect the longterm result would not be worth it.

Long as you're willing to build brick, why not simply build a brick smoker?? It could double as an outdoor pizza oven.

Someone on here has a cool built in smoker & pizza oven on their patio, that I think was brick. I remember seeing the pics & description, but can't remember who it was. Any Help?

I'm still a smoking newbiebiggrin.gif Not ready for a custom brick smoker yet. The smoker I have will work for years and I'm not worried about it rusting out. I will have a good cover over it.

Well I am going to do it. Not for a couple months though. Need to wait for some better weather and til the yard is done. Waiting on the stupid HOA approval for the fence and retaining wallicon_rolleyes.gif

I'll be sure to post it and pics!

Why not just build an offset smoker out of the brick and into the wall? Use the Silver for small jobs and have a nice big brick pit built in.
