Hello,

Just found this site. Doing research on building my next smoker.....while my ribs are smoking.

I have a home built offset horizontal smoker that was a gift from my cousin. It's very heavy duty, took my tractor and front end loader to set it in place. Built out of 3/8" wall pipe and mounted on a post set in a truck wheel.

With the gas well business winding down in our area, I have aquired some 24" pipe with 1/2" wall and some 18" pipe with 3/8" wall.

Looking for plans that I can adapt to building an upright smoker. I would like the firebox horizontal, out of the 18" pipe and the smoke chamber upright out of the 24" pipe. I gave most of the pipe away, but have to 4' sections left. Figured that would be enough for my purposes. However, I don't have enough torch to cut it, so I am going to hire that done with a plasma cutter.

Looking for any ideas along these lines.

Thanks,
RickN.

Thanks Boozer

Well, I thank you anyway.

There is something about a nice fall day, sunshine, cool breeze, ice cubes clinking in my glass, and smoke coming out of my bbq smoker that makes me a happy camper!

Just to show my heart is in the right place, I have added a 300sf bar to the back of my home by enclosing about half of a big porch, and now I can sit in my bar and watch my smoker do it's thing. Also have one of those nifty remote monitors that lets me know when the meat is done and what the temp is in my smoker while I am mixing my next adult beverage.

I guess there is a little cave man in all of us!

So there is! It may be a nice fall day in N. Texas, Which means It's just damn cold here in Nebraska, about 39-40*. Perfect weather for smoking some cheese though. (and a nice glass of good bourbon don't hurt either!) Be sure to get some pics of those ribs!

I get that same feeling up here in Michigan! I agree with Boozer's comment about the pictures, throw some in of your smoker too.
