Wooden Smokehouse

http://www.canr.uconn.edu/ansci/ext/bui ... ehouse.pdf

I saw this link on another board and it got me thinking...seems like the materials cost around $180....and most of us have the turkey frying rig....

Check with your local City Hall, you may need a building permit.

I was going to make one similar and use a wood stove.

There is a fellow who has one in my area. When I get a chance I'll go over and take a picture. It basically looks like an out house with a wood stove connected to it.

I talked to a guy I work with who has construction experience....it's starting to look like this wooden smokehouse is going to be a go once the weather breaks.

Rather than using the Turkey Fryer…this is on sale and might work for that smoke house

I'm thinking the woodstove would be more work to control the temp.
But then again..bank the fire...

I don't think a hot plate would get the smokehouse hot enough...for the type of smoking I want to do.

Nice smokehouse plans. In my hood they might think it is an outhouse though.

JB,

My father in law goes to the Raleigh store about once or twice a year and stocks up on lawnmower stuff...etc. He loves Agrisupply.

My buddy at work is drawing up some plans and a shopping list…looks like a wooden smokehouse is going to be built a my house soon…..We are going to make it 4x4 and its’ going to be 7 feet 4 inches high in the front and slope down to 6ft at the back…we are going to insulate it and use that concrete board for the inside…..

I have a gas smoker (I know, I know) that I bought several years ago and runs on a turkey fryer burner. It puts out so much heat, it can't be used without the water pan or flames out when I try to get it low enough, so a full sized turkey fryer burner may be more heat than you'll want if some cooler smoking is the plan.

I'm looking at going no higher than 165* as the smoking temp...I think I'll be ok with the big area....I'm guessing that your gas smoker is smaller than what the smokehouse is going to be...If I want to cold smoke I can always use a hot plate...thanks for the input...I guess will see what works and go from there....the big thing is getting it built after that...it's just a matter of trying out different heat sources.....

Dave what are you using for insulation? That spray foam stuff would seal it up nicely.
Can't wait to see the progress pics. Good luck.
