My Smoker Build along

I promised this a couple of months ago but things got real crazy with work so I will start on it now. The first picture is the finished product.

Next, I found a good, metal stand with casters. This stand I got from work. It is 2" steel tubing and is very solid and rolls well.

The stand is 27x32. I covered it with 1/2" plywood. Since it was a metal frame, I drilled through the frame and secured the wood with bolts. I also framed up the outside walls with 2x3's.

For rack holders, I used 2x3 as well and put them at equal distances on both sides of the walls. These are screwed into place into the studs.

I then connected the studs horizontally with 2x3 wall plates.

Next, I put in a horizontal stud across the front so I could divide the front into 2 doors instead of just 1 big one so there is not as much heat loss if I need to add chips/ water etc. Also, you need to add a roof. I just used the same 1/2" plywood as I used on the floor.

Next, I used 1x8 car siding to side the smoker. This is so easy to do and it looks real nice and has a good seal. Just make sure to check the level of the siding on each row and use finish nails when nailing them.

Now we need to add the vents. I used two cheapo heating vents from Home Depot. I think they were $4 a piece. I used my skill saw and cut a whole in the roof and also one in the center of the floor under where the burner will be. The two of these will make it much easier to regulate the temperature.
Note: In this picture, the one in the floor is not cut but you can get the idea by seeing the one in the top.
