    Hi   Im not exactly new to smoking but at the present time i do not have a smoker. In the past i have used 55 gal drums and some fashioned after an old time smoke house. My latest smoker was a converted gas stove which worked great untill I set in on fire one thanksgiving morning. Luckily this was before i put the turkey in it. I have looked at several commercial smokers but have always been disappointed in the size and build quality. So i am in need of a project and have decided to build my own. I prefer electric and have several plans rolling around in my mind. But am certainly willing to listen to any suggestions or pitfalls that may be waiting down the road. I have also decided to build a smoke generator rather than having a fire inside my smoker. memories of my old gas stove. Looking forward to being part of  forum devoted to a great hobby involving food and smoke.
