Hello, and thank you for having such an informative blog.
My name is Meredith, I'm a Captain, My husband and I live in south Louisiana. I am trying to build our 5 Acres in to a homesteaders paradice. I'm the motivated do it yourself er my husband likes to enjoy what I do but isn't to comfortable with construction. I am building an outdoor kitchen, attached to the pavilion I built earlier this year. We cook outside a lot and have a BBQ with a smoke box and have used it so much it's falling apart. So I want to build a smoke house ( small) 3' wide 3' deep about 6' tall with the smoke box behind it. But I've never done one. This is the space This is the pavilion before I started.

I was wondering if anyone can help?
I was thinking of putting a steel shelf in front of the intake where the smoke goes from the fire box to the smoker to help distribution of the smoke and to have a place to put my water pan. Any suggestions would help on size please.
