Hi all, I'm a new member from Northwest Louisiana. The last few years I have started processing my own deer and have been smoking meat for about 5 years. I'm here to learn some new ideas and put together a plan of building a new smoke house. For the last two years I have been using a make shift smoke house I made from a 2 burner wood stove and a smoker that I purchased that was gas and converted by plumbing in the stove pipe from the wood stove. This has done the job but I'm interested in making a proper smoke house. I recently acquired a new pit made from a tank that has the fire box on one end and stack on the other. I use this for cooking now. Looking forward to getting some new ideas and sharing my experiences.
