Default My new Smoke House

I recently picked up 50 lbs of pork belly to make into bacon with Shagdog. I have a Large Big Green Egg, but realized that long term I needed a smoke house. So after perusing the web and this forum I built one.

Here are the images of the build process. It's 95% complete. I need add some shelf supports, some vents and dampners. I also need to add some weatherstripping to seal the door. Overall size is 24" wide, 18" deep and 6 1/2' tall.

I built it with two doors so I could access the firebox without losing all the smoke. Also all of the floor boards are removable so they can be propped open for air flow if needed.

I was able to get the internal temp up to 210 and hold it for sometime. I had very light charcoal into and with a little experimenting I believe I can get it hotter and controllable. I will stop tonight and get two probe thermos for the door to monitor temp and use my wireless Maverick.

I did season the SH on Sunday with cherry wood and plan on finishing my bacon tonight.

Overall I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I have about $90 into right now and picked up all the lumber at the local home improvement store. If you want more info on the SH. Send me a message or email and I'll give you the material list.

Looks good. I love my smokehouse. Next time you are in grayslake, let me know and you and shagdog can come over and check mine out and I can show you some ways to get that temp up so you can do some turkeys, hams, etc in there.

Nice build!
