post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just built this smoker took me about 2 days i didnt spend much time on it cause i want to build a different one and make that one really good i just need a new smoker for this weekend and i figure i would practice on this one i spent about 70 bucks making this one. I also tested it out yesterday and it gets over 300 degrees in the top barrel where i put my meat so i was happy i was afraid i wouldnt get enough heat

Looks interesting I can't see the bottom of the burn barrel did you put adjustable vents for controlling air flow into the fire? If not it would give you much better heat control

If you extended the tube from the firebox, you could use it as a baffle. Drill some smaller holes in it on the side closer to the firebox and drill gradually larger holes as you work across to the other side.

Just an idea....
