I am building a new smoker. This one is 6 foot long 24 inch pipe and a 24 by 24 inch firebox. Here are some pictures of what I have done.

No I did not use the calculator this was the request of the guy I am building it for. I will also add a grate inside the firebox so he can grill in it.
I just run the calculator and believe it or not I am right on with both the exhaust and the air intake. Maybe it looks smaller in the picture it is actually a 12" circle so half of that is what the calculator has as a 1.

Well I am done with the smoker. I added some tubing under the smoker to have space to store stuff and put the serving shelve up. I like painting it first before I weld it in place it is so much either to get paint in to all the corners and spaces on the grate that way.I think it came out sweet.
Thanks for all the great comments. Well he picked it up yesterday and was happy was what i build for him. As luck will have it I also sold my own smoker i build a year ago to a young man looking for a used smoker. He is happy with it actually cooked on it yesterday afternoon. LOL So now I am trying to figure out my next build.
Damn man good work! Hope you'll post your next build for us to see as well! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
