Default Smoker Blue Prints

Hey folks, my partner has serious machine shop. We can weld, laser, stamp you name it, in pretty much any kind of metal. As an avid contest cooker, for fun I want to make a smoker for the back of the shop. Most of the plans I see out there is converting a bullet shape or propane tank into a smoker. Does anyone have any plans or dimensions for an rectangle box shape? I'm looking for something large enough for a whole hog. Any help including bullet shapes is greatly appreciated. Btw right now I cook on a Stumps Classic which I love.

I have seen a LOT of builds posted on here, but not as many actual plans or prints for them. You might just try doing a search for "propane tank offset smoker build" or something like that. OR, have a go at google and see what comes up. There's likely some plans that will pop up on other BBQ forums, but I don't know.

Myself, I've learned quite a bit from just reading through other people's builds.

Brother Phrasty's build comes to mind. Lots of great info here:
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=88599

Norcoredneck built a nice trailer smoker a while back:

Jlane21034 did another killer trailer smoker (this is pretty much exactly what I want to build....collecting parts now):

And northern smokey also did a killer offset build a while ago:

Hope these help with some ideas. No doubt any of them would help you with questions. READ.....TAKE NOTES!!!


Good luck brother!

Wampus,

Thank you for the info. I see how you were participating in the Phrasty build. Hope you build your rig. I'm in the process of moving into a new warehouse and hope to make something for the new place (permanent install) by Spring. I'll make sure to keep notes and pics. I would love to make Klose style Pit with a grill all in one set up.

Keep Smoking

If I can ever get my pics to upload I'll show one that I just started: A double door SS freezer (5' x 4.5' x 2' inside) that'll be powered by works from a Traeger 075. It should hold about three whole hogs if I need it to.
