I'm planning on building my own wooden smokehouse week after next, provided my vacation coverage allows me to go on vacation 2/13-19. I'm winging it on the design, modeling it after the smokehouses my dad used in his store (Koch) in a scaled down version. But, the one thing I've struggled with was to get the right burner and have exhaustively been searching for different ones; I've finally settled on what I believe is a good one; not too tall, right BTU, adjustable, moderate priced. Please take a look and tell me what you think or recommend something better; I'd appreciate it! These are at Northern Tool: heater: http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...70_15490_15490 hose: http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...70_15490_15490 The heater has 3 adjustable burners on it so you can tailor your heat, and the reviews include one from someone who is using it for his own homemade smoker. Check it out and let me know what you think? Also, may add a needle valve to it for even more control.
