    I just finished building a new smoker,made the frame out of treated wood and covered the inside with 1/4" underlay after insulating the walls & ceiling with 1" foam insulation.I then covered the outside with cedar siding,including the pitch roof.My question is this,out of 100% of the treated wood used 90% is either covered with 1/4" underlay (inside) and aluminum over doors (outside & inside) with aluminum over front of door frames.Of the 10% or less that is not covered inside is this safe to use in regards to the chemicals in treated wood or do I need to #1 cover all exposed treated wood,or #2 tear it apart and start all over.PLEASE HELP ME,ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY.

    I'm no expert,but i would cover all exposed treated wood for smoking temps over 100º.

    If you were cold smoking only, it wouldn't be an issue.
