Hi All! I was browsing pictures of upright smokers when I stumbled upon this site and think this is an excellent resource for a beginner or experienced person. My goal is to fabricate my own upright smoker with my brother(who happens to be an excellent welder/fabricator). I have never smoked anything and don't even know where to start. We currently have a 60 gal air compressor tank to start with. So for now I will just be cruising gathering ideas for our smoker project!
