  • My Instructable Smoker build

    I did a write up on Instructables.com for my smoker build. I entered a contest with it there. I sure could use the votes if you like it. Registration is free and it really is a good site. you would have to register to vote though. I would hate to see smoked Tofu or Shark Tacos win. lol

    I did have leave some details out in order to not turn it into a book. I would be glad to answer any questions you may have on this build.

    As fellow metal manipulators your support is appreciated.

      Very Nice

      Very cool looking smooker! I almost wish I hadn't found this site so soon because its giving me some many ideas that I want to experiment with, but still being a college student I have no work space or materials. It's getting me so frustrated that I am dreaming about having my own garage and work space

        Thanks guys. OSU, hang in there. You will eventually get your shop. Took me many years to get equipment and I work out of a tin shed still but one of these days I will have a real shop.

          Yeah don't sweat it OSU. I'm going to use a small part of my financial aid to get a new welder. I've got several hundred things to do here at the farm and I have a bunch of folks wanting different stuff made or fixed here and there. The nice thing is I'll have some extra cash finally again since my old inherited welder gave up the magic smoke.

            Very nice write up Purple. If I had found a how to like that before I started building smokers, I could have saved many dollars in Advil.

            Nice work on the cooker.

              This is terrible, really terrible. Coming over here hunting for votes??

              Must be a politican in training.

              HA, HA, Ha, ha. This is as good a place to start looking for votes.

              And there really is nothing wrong with hunting for votes either.

              Hmm, you do know that Hobart also has a discussion group also. And then there is Shop Floor Talk, Tool Box Talk and others.

                Yeah I hesitated to do it but I couldn't stand a taco beating me on votes. Don't matter it seems several folks are email bombing their own project.

                      I know I'd be interested in see more especially your damper systems. I think one of the things I need to redo on mine is the stacks. I have a 24" dia. smoker too and the stack is 3" id and I may not have made the stack long enough either.

                        Here is an inside view of the damper opening between the firebox and the horizontal tank.

                        The Vert-damp picture is the other one. I don't seem to have one with the linkage on the damper from the rod over to damper to open and close the damper.

                          excellent build. I've got a tank hiding behind my shed waiting for me to do the same thing.

                            Thanks purplewg i'm going to try to modify my smoker and hopefully the dampers will make it easier to maintain the heat. Is there a rule of thumb you use to find your stack height and diameter?
