42" RF Smoker Build
I stopped by the steel yard today for my first order.

I asked for 42"x20"x1/4" pipe. When I got it home, I put a mic on it and it is actually 3/8" thick. Score! I will take back the 1/4" plate for the firebox and get some 3/8". Can't wait to get to cutting and welding!

For those looking for a good deal on weld-on hinges, here is a good site:

20" is awfully small, especially for a RF.

1/4" is fine for the firebox.

Ready to take this journey with you!

Bubba could be right 20 " isn't very big
think I would do some type of direct heat. But then again it your smoker and do what you like

Not really. The Lang 36" Patio RF is 21.5" in diameter. I am only cooking for family and friends, so 20"x42" is a perfect size for me.

Well, now u guys have me questioningy plan. Is the 20" pipe really not big enough?

Bbq Bubba 01-21-2012 02:52 PM

I'm just sayin thats a LOT of work your going to put into hand building a smoker to end up with such a small unit.

24" minimum if you want a second shelf.
