    I've been studying the smokehouse posts for several hours. Seems that the dowels to hold the racks will be a fairly large part of the material list/cost. Question: can I use bamboo instead of dowels? I have a quarter acre patch of the right size bamboo at my hunting camp. I suppose I would have to sun dry the bamboo for a month or so, and maybe drill a small hole in each bamboo chamber to release moisture while it's drying. Thanks in advance for your help.
