We've smoked our own bacon and hams in it after our winter slaughters, and used his old salt box even for curing them. I guess you can guess that we were hanging the meat and cold smoking and not cooking to doneness! Always used all hickory for smoking.

I guess it isn't your typical smoker setup, but I thought some of you guys might find it pretty cool. It sure has a lot of sentimental meaning to me and makes me proud that we rebuilt just like he had it, down to the latch that was on the original door.

That is one of the coolest things I've seen. Good on ya for rebuilding it the way you did; that should maintain its sentimental value for generations. Thanks for sharing with us.

Thanks for posting. It brought back memories of my grandparents' smoke house on their farm. It was not as tall and had a single-sided tin roof like a lean-to. How I wish now I had taken pictures of it!

Default OLD OLD School Smoker. REAL OLD!!!

Thank you for rebuilding the smokehouse and sharing the picture. Reminds me of when I was a kid and my Grandaddy smoked hams and bacon in his old smokehouse. Thanks again.

Very cool. I remember my grandfathers. It had smell of its own. It was well used and always had some good cured meats in it. It's great you saved it
