    Here's the smoker I put together with the help of this sight.I wasn't able to finish with shelves and paint because it got too cold,I'll do that in the spring.It was a lot harder than I thought designing and building the smoker it has been very rewarding so far.Me and my boys bring home over a 100 pounds of salmon fillets from the salmon river every fall and now I have a way to cook them.These parts all came from the scrap yard,the wheels are off a riding lawn mower,the main fire box is 1/4" steel from semi truck tool box pieces.The the inside has a reverse flow plate.It is setup so it will hook to a riding lawn mower for moving so if my neighbors have a bbq they can borrow it.I'm already thinking bigger,I already found a boat trailer!![​IMG]

    Nice looking smoker. It will even look better once you get a chance to paint it. But as was mentioned above who cares what it looks like as long as it puts out great Q.

    Thanks guys.I will definitely post some Q views of the next smoking.I did the last batch of salmon with some ash wood with a little apple mixed in and it was great.I tried  charcoal and apple and it seemed very expensive in comparison to just using wood.
