    Default Building a smoker

    I am fairly new to welding and I am wanting to build a smoker. Never have tackled this big of a project, but looking forward to it.

    I am not wanting anything real big, especially not on a trailer. I even thought about making a mount coming out of the receiver hitch on my truck to pin it in and out of.

    I'll take any advice or reading you may have.

    Welcome to the site ohsobad_chevy,

    There is a few threads here about smokers, mostly large trailer rigs or small one slab smokers. Everything I have seen here have very excellent ideas involved, many of which could be scaled down and made work on a small patio size rig.

    Here is a link to another site that has hundreds of ideas of stuff others have built.

    From the smf site there is a calculator for figuring your openings for air inlet chamber opening per chamber size and such. I cant get the link to work but if you would like it, PM me and I can email it to you.

    My choice would be to build from 1/8" or less sheet, insulate it, and skin it with like sheet. There is a guy on SMF that built two very very nice cookers, not much over 2 feet square and about 3 feet tall. Sorry I don't have the link handy right now but I could probably dig it up if you are interested.

    If you click the link in my signature line it will take you to my Picasa account, I am sorry that I do not have my albums organized very well, but now that I have linked to them I cant move them. There is several folders if you scroll down. Take any idea you like, the only thing I would ask, is that you post pics of what you end up with.

    I don't know much about building smokers, but I do know there are formulas for determining your firebox size so the whole rig will work as it should. I don't have these formulas, but I'm sure someone on here does. Good luck and enjoy when you are finished.
