Home made smoker $100

Discussion in 'Smoker Builds' started by tbakko, Nov 7, 2010.

  1. I have a chance to buy a smoke for $100, it looks cool but is it worth it. I want to start smoking different kinds of meat & fish & I plan on doing a far amount if I like it as much as I think I will, so would like recommendations on diff kinds of smokers. I am totally new at this so any help will be greatly appreciated

    Interesting design! Is it made out of a drum?

    Should be worth the price, but make sure the metal is not rusted through or thin and weak. I would look at adding a heat baffle or deflector plate, it definitely has a hot spot in the center of the grill. Also looks to have room for an upper rack if you wanted to add on.
