First smoking project!

Discussion in 'Info and Practices' started by ciaranftz, Sep 8, 2013.

  1. I have a crude design for a basic cold smoker I want to run by the more experienced smokers out there.

    Basically its a 5ftx1.5ft box with no bottom and a chimney

    and the smoke source is dry/damp wood chips in a paint can on a camp stove or a hot plate.

    I have seen similar designs all over the internet and they all seemed to work.

    I plan on smoking some pork belly.

    I am a beginner smoker so any and all advice is appreciated .

  3. Ciar,

    Thats quite large. I just took apart my 2x4ft plywood box and built a carsiding type from you tube.

    Before you determine size , find the racks and build to the racks. I built mine, then I found racks, that were 1/2 inch too big, so I had to take it apart to make it bigger I decided to change it up.

    I too want to smoke some belly which was the whole purpose of this cold smoker.

    Smoke happy!
