I have a question that I would like some of u to comment on. I built a smoke house. It is made out of wood with a smoke box at the bottom. I built it to cold smoke but I would also like to heat smoke at times. What temp can I get to without burning down my house?

I have seen a lot of wood smokers lined with metal sheets to allow for any kind of smoking. I saw one that had a grill right above the heat for straight grilling. With those temps holding okay, I would say that is a great way to make your house fire resistant at least.

On another note, I am looking to build a small cold smoker. What was your cost, materials, layout, etc.? Not to be too nosey, but any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks!

sfoster24,

I have a 6' tall plywood smokehouse without any protective material on the floor and I run 225* -250* from a propane turkey fryer with no problems...it got away from me once and went to 300* without damage but that was only for a short time.
