Build a pizza oven, then build a smoker. Two is better than one.
I agree, that is why im asking here. However on the other hand i want to save money and not over do things if i dont have to. I think ive decided to do the pizza oven and a large grill with a offset smoker box, all made out of fire brick, the smoker box will be enclosed inside the grill, but will be offset and lower to the ground.
