Well, I finally finished building my new smoker. It's not exactly like what you're used to seeing here, so I hope you like it.
I wanted a smoker dedicated for cold smoking foods such as sausage and bacon. I suppose I could have used my other smokers, but where's the fun in that?
Since I'm a carpenter, and I don't do much welding, I decided to build one out of wood.
For some reason I didn't take any pics during construction. Rolling Eyes Basically, I made 6 panels with 1 1/2" x 2" frames filled with 2" ridged foam, and sheeted on both sides with 3/8" plywood. After assembling the box, I lined the inside with aluminum. Then I added a pitched roof, and covered the whole thing with cedar shingles and trim.



I bolted on a couple wheels and added a handle to the back to make it easier to move around (like a hand truck)


I attached the door with a piano hinge, used a couple latches to keep it closed, and used a 1/8" x 1 1/2" felt weather stripping to seal it up.



Since it's mainly going to be used for sausage, I decided to break it in with some andouille and kielbasa

Looks like a wood uds. The sausage looks good so I'm guessing you got what you wanted.

Wow! Very nice. You could actually put that in the FRONT yard.
I think you have inspired me to build one similar, if you don't mind.

What gauge/thickness of aluminum sheet did you use?

Thanks, k.a.m. Watching you guys weld up all these cool pits, makes me want to start welding again, but the last thing I need right now is another hobby. So, for now, I'll stick with what I know
Smile

TonyMo Thanks man. Build away. I used some thin gauge stuff I found at HD., cut it to fit, stuck it in there and sealed around it with RTV.

THANKYOU for the inspiration! I thought I would post a photo. Much of the material I had extra of from building my camp up north.

It works great and I have already done knackwurst, pepperoni, cheese and summer sausage. I am sure I will get many years of use from it.

Those both look NICE!

Tonymo, Did you treat your inside wood? If so with what?

You may want to put a lock on that thing. Elves may think it is an out house and they will be in town next month. Razz Oh and don't forget garden gnomes, they are a year round threat!

Sorry I couldn't keep that one inside!
