The stove on top was used in a design similar to yours. But insted of your smaller barrel, I had used a fuel oil tank from a house basement. Probably around 100-150 gallon. As much as I tried I Could not get her above 220F. I'm not ready to tempt cold smoking yet. Your idea looks great. Will work really nice. Is this your first custom build? How are you enjoying it?
Technically yea my first build . I have reconfigured two smokers into one and had good results . Fun... for sure its like making a fly or lure and reaping the Benifits ! I have been collecting scrap metal and buying some as well to make this project as cheep as possible and it keeps me out of trouble for the most part except the wife . Lol 👊 I'm hope to put it to the test next year in a few competitions or defently on the patio for the rest of my life . I'm also looking to put some sort of roof on it as well
