Ahhh... nice truck...tough to tell the year without seeing the slant on the top half of door or the front of the hood.

Re: a smoker for my household

Wow..looks like a top o the line steel coffin to me. Course I am an old funeral salesman (pre need dept) we carried around a lot of photos similar to that...cept they had paint and nice rayon lining. In fact it sorta like a little bed in there. Now some of the guys did not mind taking a nap in there..but not me. I do not mess with haints Now watching this puppy come to life is gonna be interesting. My imagination is running wild here. Hopefully it will emerge as an upright direct with the optional water pan.

Re: a smoker for my household

Very Ingenius!
Have never seen this application in place, but looks like it should work well assuming the heat distributes evenly throughout.
Thanks for the update! Are you planning on this being a cook anything kinda smoker from whole Hog to Yardbird?

Re: a smoker for my household

yes sir ,several yardbirds,ribs,hams or up to about a hundred pound "upright" whole pig.this same design i have used before works really well.good heat control with good even heat in pit.the steam kettle works good for venison and wild turkey less work in keeping meat from drying out.there is no nasty water pan to clean.the fat droppings fall onto the heat shield and burn away.

Re: a smoker for my household

i am building the smoker from scrap but i don't want it to look like i built it from scrap material.if i had full sheets of material to build from there would be way less weld seams.
but the basic design would be the same.

Re: a smoker for my household

Ok do the little flapper gizmos control the heat and smoke coming up from the firebox on the bottom perhaps?
