You can see the good ol smoker still standin and an old fire box which is no longer around.
Once the shack is done, down comes ol' smokey and I'm going to install a stockade fence from the shed to the left, around the back of ol'smokey and down to about that old fire box. THEN we build the new mega smoker [smilie=banana.gif] about wear the fire box is!


Any new progress?

New Smoker Up Date

Well, it's been a long wait but the time is drawing near and we will be start the big build on that smoker soon.
The weather of course has screwed things up big time, the only thing I was able to get done during some nice weather was ... if you look at the first pictures the walls of the shed were not finished. I managed to get a little more done buy adding the lattice work for some rose bushes to grow on, but still need to finish that left side with a double swing open door.

Another change is you may have noticed is the first pics, there was a BIG hickory just to the right next to the shed .... well found a bad spot in the base of it so she came down, just another hold up! [smilie=a_doh.gif] But I did manage to get all the split and stacked as well as make the metal rack it is stacked in, got me close to 2 cords that pile is 3 rows 16 feet long by 5 feet wide, also got some cherry wood as well, that was stacked in the earlier pics. [smilie=a_goodjobson.gif]

Now as soon as this snow [smilie=lol_xtreme.gif] melts, Im a gonna start working again.

Ok, here is the small wood burning stove I found....what do ya think? Can it be used as an offset smoke box.

I thinking the smoker itself will be 3ft x 3ft square and 6ft top to bottom [smilie=banana.gif] (YAH BABY!)
And Ill offset the stove 6ft ??? [smilie=a_whyme.gif]

Lets get crackin on this smoker, if the stove will make a good smoke box then lets design the smoker around it.

All ideas welcome! And I hope the pic is good quality.

Oh and check out the threesome I had recently [smilie=bowdown.gif]

Ok the sun is out finally [smilie=a_bravo.gif]
Here's the new pics of the stove that I found and want to use as my offset smoke box.
If you think it will work let me know and I would welcome ideas on what type and how I should build the actual smoker. All ideas welcome!
I do like both cold smoking as well as hot smoking so if ya think I can build a combo unit let's do it!
Also, I want to build the actual smoker or smoke house out of wood like a 3ft x 3ft x 6ft height shack, help me out guys! [smilie=a_help.gif]

My current offset uses a woodstove about the same size, and in my opinion, its way to small. ymmv

My offset cooker I used is a LOT bigger then that too. BUT....... you just want it for a smokehouse at low temps right?... you might be OK...but also might be tending it more then you'd like. Another ..BUT....if you use this as the starting point and it doesn't work out.... you don't have much work into replacing it....it's just a connection to a common stovepipe........right?????

Are you doing an outside the smokehouse setup with the woodstove/smoke part...or are you putting directly inside the smokehouse?

They say it looks like they lost at least 20 pounds!

The stove even though it has a square top and bottom, is round.
It is 14 inch in diameter with a 16 inch chamber to burn wood = 14 x 16...
the rest is 8 inches below for ash dump, giving it an overall height of 24 inches.

For the smokehouse I'm hoping for 3ft x 3ft x 6ft h, what's that equal 54 cubic ft.
It will be a wood structure with maybe some type of insulation, like an outhouse type looking thing
