Hello from Israel

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hi smokers
I do not smell of smoke yet, despite the fact that I'm anxious for it. I must say that the thing of smoking is much less popular here in Israel that it is in the USA but the interest is increasing. I'm not even a begginer yet because I'm only starting to build my first smoker, so you may say that i'm in my "embryonic stage" and here is where I would like to have your help. I'm sure that members of this forum have built a (vertical?) drum smoker and they experienced the use of it and know well how good they work, and that is what I would like to ask for, a sketch/plan/pics of a self built ans proven smoker. I know that I can find and download it from the web, but I would like to have it from a person that knows what its worth, so if you are willing to help me on that, it will be great! let me point out that I have both the skills and the tools to carry out the task.

Welcome! I am also new to smoking, however there are many people here that can help answer your questions.

I visited Israel last March and had a wonderful experience. Your country is beautiful and historic.

Howdy, welcome to the SMF!!

Plenty of great info on the assorted build forums here, just pick your intended fuel and you'll have as much if not more info then you need and folks to walk you through it.

My wife was just over in Tel Aviv 2 weeks ago for business and informs me your country is now on our short list of places to visit so get that pit up and running cause I'm always jonesin' for BBQ when I travel. :)

Welcome avz, amazing how many members from so many places we have here.
You may be the first from Israel to join up.

For plans for building a smoker I would suggest starting a new thread and ask in the title for some plans or help on the build and then explain a bit about what you want in the thread, you're likely to get more views and help if you post the question separately.

Thank you all

I'm really touched by the warm welcome greetings. It must be a fine forum, since the members are fine people. I already consider it as a "home away from home".

Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us. This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.

For those of you new to Smoking, be sure to check out Jeff's 5 Day Smoking Basics eCourse.

I Would Highly Suggest Reading these posts on Food Safety by bbally.

both a ServSafe Instructor and a HACCP Instructor.


Here you can get the 2009 USDA Food Safety Guide from his site.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

Welcome! You have a business opp right in front of you my friend. Give them some BBQ and they will believe!

Sorry, I meant to add this. This is the basic design I followed to build mine.


Here is my build. I have since added a Weber lid and an additional rack.


PM me if you need help at all. My best piece of advice would be to buy or steal a seamstress tape, makes it a lot easier!

You have gone and done it now! Stumbled into a whole nest of grazed smokers. Next thing you know you will be getting funny looks from your family while you snap pics of the excellent Q you just smoked.


If BBQ is not a big thing in Israel, you have a unique business opportunity. You can start out as a hobby and learn the basics, fly to the USA and visit some authentic BBQ spots, and import that to your country.
