Ive been thinking about building a smoker from a 50 or 100 gallon propane bottle as the cook box and a 35 gal steel drum as the smoke box. I was going to pipe the smoke in through 3 or 4 6inch steel pipes with dampers on all of them so I could control how much heat/smoke is coming through to the cook box. Ive looked all over online and have seen very few smokers built this way. Any thoughts or comments- I had a cheapy unit that had the smoke box on the side and the heat throughout the cook box tempature was always uneven, thats why Ive decided to put the smoke box underneath the cook box and control the smoke intake with dampers Again any thoughts?
