This type of design will be my next smoker.
For cost versus cubic feet, and shelving area, you simply can't beat a DIY design made of wood.
Sure, I'l love a big monster Lang type rig, but I simply can't afford it.

Awesome thread, thanks man.
How much have you spent on this project?

Bob, you should be able to build this for around $200. Mine is very similar (minus the AL) and it was a hair under $200. Very easy to build.

Yikes, I guess I should have clarified that this isn't mine. Just found it on an Alaskan outdoors forum that I like to read.

Also, for what it's worth, the poster said he spend roughly $300 in materials but has no idea how much time he put into it.

Oohh.....I thought the one I was looking at was the one in the other thread.

The wood is cheap, I know how much that is, I've made a hundred projects with wood. It was the sheetmetal I've was specifically wondering about, as I've never bought any. Not sure I'd even know where to go to buy sheet metal.

I see he is out of Wisconsin. Seems like I saw pics of his build before but can't place it. He did a great job!

Mine cost a lot less than 300 but I had most of the materials on hand from another project. I needed something big enough to hold 2 pigs worth of hams and bacons at a time. It's worked out great for me.

It is all wood. You don't need to line it.
