I'm in need of building a smoker. The one the family had got left back in Texas. Soo.. I have some questions.
Is thicker metal better for the main body parts? I have some 1/4 inch casing and some 5/8ths with spray weld hardining on it. I'm not sure how i would cut the 5/8ths.. BUT if it is better then i would figure it out. I can weld what ever i need to weld and getting extra material is easy. I know i need to place it on wheels but this sucker will be heavy.. Is there a ratio between the fire box and the upper smoke box for size? Is there a ratio for exhaust stack size to fire box and smoke box size?
Thanks for any helping hints that you can think of over and above this..
BTW.. anyone ever near Edmonton is always welcome out for a roast and beer (or pop if you dont drink).
