    Vlap, The hot coals go in each end. Under the hams and shoulders. I start out with about 2 1/5lbs of charcoal on each end and just add about 10 coals to each end every hour.

    looks like you got about 30 cinder blocks for it. Do you leave a space for the adding of coals. I did not see it in the photos. But likely if its there I was just drooling over that whole pig.

    Thank you for the welcome DEER MEAT. The wood is some untreated lumber that I already had on hand...I had to buy new cement blocks for the project.

    Vlap, I remove the block on each end to add coals........It's not very pretty, but hey, it works. [​IMG]

    Sorry I missed this question Vlap.
    I line the ground with foil, it helps channel any drippings away from the hot coals.
    The coals go directly on the foil at each end.

    Cowgirl I'm not trying to sound negative here.......But it looks like those are pine boards the smoke house is made of. I know that smokin with pine is a big no no, but i'm not sure about building a smoker out of pine.

    If it is not pine then I am sorry for the post.[​IMG]

    No problem DEER MEAT.[​IMG]
    Pine is a no no for hot smoking, When the temperature of the smoke stays low as in cold smoking, it will not effect the finished product.
