    The floor of the smokehouse is ¾ plywood. Should I put a layer of wonderboard on the floor? My firebox is 4 ft away from the smokehouse and I do not expect sparks but should I be mindful of protecting the area where the smoke tube enters the floor?

    Thanks,

    Al

    You may want to consider something other than wood for easy clean up. Maybe some sheet aluminum?

    Bassman,

    I have some wonderboard left over from a shower I tried to build. Concrete impregneted fiberglass. Shouldn't burn and I should be able to remove it and hit it with the pressure washer if too much crud builds up.

    You think I need to protect the floor for sanitary reasons or fire reasons?

    I would say both
    unless you plan on putting a drip pan under items you are going to be
    smoking. the wonderboard sounds like it would fit the bill.
    better safe then sorry
