I've gotten it from this lumber yard before as the exposed side under my patio roof and 3 years in much heat, there is no sap. But I will be picky again when getting this lumber. The structural wood I was planning on using would be kiln dried 2x3s since they are generally nicer than any 2x4s I've seen, and cheaper too.

Will this conifer wood work well enough? I really can't think of doing this in hardwood, as it would definitely break the budget for this. I'm thinking in the $200 - $250 range complete.

I do intend to do only cold smoking and dehydrating in this box so I don't expect temperatures to ever exceed @200

since I haven't really cold smoked, please correct me on temps or other considerations
