Thanks Bigheaded. It took me quite some time to get to here. I've been in some kind of construction my whole life but, I'm an Electrician by trade. I got the idea from a youtube video from Ralf Gomm who built something similar and will sell you his design plans for 20 bucks. I made it my own by adding a side brasero on the grill,wider smoker with metal doors, and instead of an arch for wood storage, I went with a stainless door for storage. Here is the link to his video....That looks decent, and by decent I mean I'd kill 2 or 3 people for it. WOOOOOW! And to think a little over a week ago I was patting myself on the back for the job I did putting my Masterbuilt 560 together. It was 34 steps and had like 30 parts! lol. I know you said you're not a brick mason, but you're clearly a very high-level handyman.
Did you make the plans in SketchUp or something similar? I couldn't even imagine all the math and calculations needed to make that (I hate that kind of math)
Thanks SmokinEdge. I'm still dialing the smoker in for even and controllable temps. I've had one cook so far(pork butt and spatchcocked chicken). Both came out good but, temps were alot hotter on the edges than the center of the cook chamber. I had a 3/8th inch plate for a diffuser but too much gap on the edges, hence the unbalanced temps. Put a new plate in leaving 1/2 inch gap around all edges but, haven't had a chance to cook on it yetI like it! Nicely done. How’s she cook? Need some meat pictures. Lol
