nice build....may I ask what you use for fuel...charcoal, wood or ?

How long does your burns last before having to add more to the fire?

How low can you get with this temp...if you build a small enough fire...could you hold 150 to 175 temps?

I did not see it but besides the stacks running up the inside...where are the openings to let heat and smoke in or are their none.

I realize there is a back wall where the heat comes up and the square tube pipes carry the heat out - hence reverse flow (I think...LOL) - how does the heat get into the cooking chamber from the firebox and is it controlled by a damper or anything? Pics would be very nice if possible - thanks for sharing - sweet build!!!

Sorry have not checked out this topic in a while.

MrMike: I would put the materials cost at around $500 give or take 100.

Donny: I would say from top to bottom it is withing 4-5 degrees.

Vexter1: The heat enters through the false real wall which is basically like a 2" deep by 3' wide tube. The heat enters from the top, and exits near the bottom. There is no damper, the heat is controlled by the ball valve controlling air to the firebox.

BBQonIce: I use all sorts of different fuels. I have done lump with wood chunks, or used straight splits of oak, either work very well.

I usually go 2-4 hours before needing to add any fuel. If i toss a bunch in it, it has gone 6 hours without any fuel. When I was smoking salmon i did 5 hours at 140 with 1 small pan of charcoal and some wood chunks.
The smoke enters through the false rear wall, so it comes in through the top, and travels down to the bottom.

Thanks everyone for all the compliments. It have been a lot of fun smoking on it since its completion. I will try and get some action shots sooner or later. I would really like to get a large cook going, with maybe 3 or 4 briskets, and 6 shoulders, but i dont have that many friends! HAHA

ggarner, could you tell me what the space is between the bottom bar and the cross bar at the top of the fire box?

I've read this thread countless times and it's a beautiful rig. I'm stealing much of it Very Happy

Was your intention on the original door to be 1" thick and sitting flush? I get that from the 2" framing and the 1" door stop. Couldn't make that out in the picks.

Also, what is the thickness of your door after the design change of adding the stock on the front? It kind of looks like 1" but seems it would set back then.

Thanks

WOW...very impressive! I'm in the process of building my on vertical smoker too. I was wondering if you had some dimensions jotted down you could pass along? How tall did you make the firebox? What's the distance between the racks? Any dimensions like that would be a great help.

Thanks in advance! Eric
