Just started building the mac daddy (hopefully) smokehouse. decided to build it out of masonary mostly as this is my area of expertise. Here are a few pics of the first day of construction and I'll try to keep it updated as i go and maybe u guys can give me any tips u might have as this will be my first large scale smoker build. pretty sure I have the basic construction part under control but not real sure about the wiring of the elements and sizes and what not. I will be using electric for the heat and would like to just use 3 1000 watt burners all wired to thier own control so hopefully I can make that work . i guess there is only one way to find out haha. the smoker will be 4x6x6 outside dimensions. the box on the side will have a small hotplate burner and be for making the smoke i plan to pipe in the side for cold smoking. the burners inside will provide the heat. let me know what u think guys and nice to meet ya all!!
