Howdy, Brian-glad that you're here with us. Sit back, pop open a cold one and read through the many threads that make up SMF. See what others have done both food and home built smokers.

Enjoy!!

ok, i couldn't add pics off my pc (not that i could figure out) in my reply to you, so i will post them here. these pics show the variuos stages it has been in. in the third pic, when i first made it. the 2nd pic i moved the smokestack so it exited out of the end, instead of the top. the 1st pic i painted it flat black. the 4th pic shows how the firebox is joined to the food chamber.the last pic shows the firebox inside, where it is joined to the food chamber. maybe this will help some others. i have added insulation to it, also. my temps stay anywhere from the same on each end, to 25° apart. depends on what i have in there. i made some new food racks last week at work. i took 1" angle iron and made two frames. then i took some epanded metal and welded it on top of them, so when they are in there, it looks like one big rack.

here is a pic with the insulation on it. i got this insulation from a contractor at work, that is installing this stuff on the exhaust ducts of our furnaces. it is fire proof, and our ducts get over 2000°f, so i am sure it is safe to use on a smoker. i haven't had any problems with it. the foil tape i used is crappy, so i took some of the tape the contractor uses. i got 2 new rolls, and 2 partial rolls. i am going to redo it, using his tape.
