My new Smoke House
20 Attachment(s)
I recently picked up 50 lbs of pork belly to make into bacon with Shagdog. I have a Large Big Green Egg, but realized that long term I needed a smoke house. So after perusing the web and this forum I built one.

Here are the images of the build process. It's 95% complete. I need add some shelf supports, some vents and dampners. I also need to add some weatherstripping to seal the door. Overall size is 24" wide, 18" deep and 6 1/2' tall.

I built it with two doors so I could access the firebox without losing all the smoke. Also all of the floor boards are removable so they can be propped open for air flow if needed.

I was able to get the internal temp up to 210 and hold it for sometime. I had very light charcoal into and with a little experimenting I believe I can get it hotter and controllable. I will stop tonight and get two probe thermos for the door to monitor temp and use my wireless Maverick.

I did season the SH on Sunday with cherry wood and plan on finishing my bacon tonight.

Overall I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I have about $90 into right now and picked up all the lumber at the local home improvement store. If you want more info on the SH. Send me a message or email and I'll give you the material list.

Great Job D! Next time we go 200 lbs worth of bacon, now that we can smoke it all at once...

Great build, I think a smokehouse would be an amazing tool to have for many different cooks.

Looks good. I love my smokehouse. Next time you are in grayslake, let me know and you and shagdog can come over and check mine out and I can show you some ways to get that temp up so you can do some turkeys, hams, etc in there.

Nice build!

I remember my grandfathers smokehouse...very similar just much bigger. Always smelled so good.

you've got this running up around 210? i'd be worried it'd go up in flames!

Great job! That my next project when I get settled.
