Default Clone cookers (stumps and a backwoods)

Wanted to share some pictures of my two winter projects.

First is my backwoods/onyx clone. It's a hybrid size wise. 13x22 shelfs x 3, about 7" in between each shelf.


Stumps clone cooking chamber is about twice the size. No sheetmetal yet, hopefully this week.

Nice! I'd like to see more build pics of the Backwoods. Been planning on a fatboy clone, but really need to do some measurements on one.

What are you using for door gaskets?

It's a stainless mesh pgasket I found online. Seems to work good, have 10 cooks or so on it now.

Careful what ya ask for.

Water pan is a steam tab


1" square outer frame

paint is a fine rattle can jobset up pretty much just for guru use, I haven't tried to cook without it.you can kinda see te 2nd 1" frame being welded in in this picturenice tape line... Took this for the racks 1/2" angle with 3/4x9 expanded non rolled, stumps is getting rolled as this stuff destroys foil

Anything else ya want to see or know ask away, I'm real happy with how it cooks and think you should do.

Default Better than Stump

I like your taste in smokers and whiskey. It takes real skill to do this quality of work and obiously a lot of time. I'm sure you will enjoy some fine q from that baby. Don't suppose you are going into a new business are you.

No business ever building smokers! I started it the Friday after thanks giving and didn't finish until the middle of February, I don't think I could charge enough for how slow I work! Actual work hours was right about 400, could of been 200, but I took it apart and back together a lot as I found I was wrong the first time I did everything.

Just a fun winter project more less to see if I could do it and saved a couple bucks with my slave labor.

The backwoods was a lot of fun, stumps so far has been easier, but heavy as hell to move around. 1/2" and 1/4" plate steel chimney pounds add up fast.

24" is a must, 22-1/2" on the backwoods tad little to tight when using pans, stumps ended up 25-1/2" after I cut all the mitered pieces at 40degrees not 45.... Plan deviation happened right there.

The plan for the new one will be to replace Lil Rain in the comp trailer and then Lil Rain gets put into the shed for if we want to cook a couple cases of butts or go to a comp thats a longer run we could throw her on a utility trailer Ez ups and go.
