    I'm looking to build a smokehouse similar to this one. I'm shooting for interior dimensions of 36" wide, 30" deep, and 4-5' high. The walls would have 1.5" foam board insulation with concrete board on the inside sides and bottom (30" high) and plywood at the top. Floor and ceiling would also...

    Smokehouse Insect Repellent Tips Needed

    I recently built a smokehouse that will be staying at my deer lease (possibly permanently). Since it is staying at my deer lease it was done fairly frugally, only costing me about $20 to build. When I was testing it this past weekend adding smoke and heat I notice a fairly large spider crawling...

    MiniMax Smokehouse

    Here it is, my modest urban smokehouse that uses a MiniMax Green Egg as a fire pit. I had a heck of a time making it work how I wanted it to, went through 3 redesigns but now it finally works like a charm. Why green egg? I wanted something portable, reliable/predictable and requiring little...

    Help: Is there such a thing as too clean of a fire?

    Hoping some of the more experienced Pitmasters here can help me out. I recently purchased the old country BBQ pits smokehouse vertical smoker. I love everything about it except for I'm kind of noticing that it's not getting that much smoke on the meat. I'm not sure if it's the smoker or if...

    REVIEW: Just purchased the Old Country Smokehouse....I love this smoker.

    I don’t see many reviews of the smoker I just purchased so I’ll give one in hopes it may help others. This Smokehouse is actually a great smoker build. The indirect heat from th bottom based firebox is a neat design. Almost no chance for char/burn from imcorrect placement of tuning plates used...

    Building a brick smoker?

    Hey All! I have recently bought the lot next door and after clearing the small pines and oak (saving the oak for later) I am kicking around the idea of building a small brick or block smoker. Nothing too grandiose, maybe half the size of a fridge with a offset box. Anyone have any ideas or...
