  1. Yo. Tons of great info already and I've barely scratched the surface. Very new to smoking. I fabbed up a smoker (horizontal hexagonal with rectangle side firebox). My neighbor is a pro (builder and smoker) and helped me out big time. The smoker is almost ready for paint and I will then post pics. It took about 2 weeks to build and $200 in materials. Handmade in the USA.
     
  2. Ask away, I'll give any tips I can. I am no pro fabricator/welder either.

  4. Welcome the SMF you'll enjoy your visits!!!
    You mean we're supposed to paint the smoker after we build it?????[​IMG]
    I finished mine late last fall, wanted to get it home to smoke something so it hasn't seen any paint yet. This summers project. Maybe the paint will hid some of my 'fine' welding.......
