Alrighty everyone!! I am from the good state of Texas! Here in Conroe BBQ is king!! I am new to smf but have been reading off this website for five years. I have been smoking for a few years. I use to have a centerfire smoker which was good for some meats but was not a good traditional slow meat smoker!! This is why I sold my smoker and will embark on a build. I have spent years looking at all of yalls builds and always wanted to build my own smoker. The only issue is I have never done any type of fabrication nor do I have tools. This will not stop me!!! I don't have any measurements yet but will post soon. I will need help with plans and calculated measurements. I am a complete new to this type of stuff. So I will take any type of advice or feedback. I bought this thing for 100 bucks with delivery. Is that a good price? I bought a dewalt angle grinder to take the off the motor stand. Will be using it to cut out the door with a fibe cutting disc. This is what I got so far. Took me a couple of hours and a grinding disk to cut off the motor stand. Will need another disk to grind off and make it smooth. Can it eventually look like there wasn't any welds on the tank where it met with the motor stand????? Any suggestions???? Looking to do a reverse offset smoker not mounted on a trailer for now.
