Discussion in 'Smoke Houses' started by highplainsmoker, Jan 30, 2012.

  1. HELLO FROM THE HIGHPLAINSMOKER,

    I AM CONSIDERING BUILDING A SMALL WOOD SMOKEHOUSE APPROX 3'X3'X6' TALL.

    I WOULD LIKE TO USE IT FOR COLD  AND HOT SMOKING.

    I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS FOR YOU GUYS, SO HERE IT GOES

    1. WHAT IS A GOOD THERMOMETER FOR INTERNAL SMOKEHOUSE TEMPS?

    2. SHOULD I LINE THE BOTTOM AND UP THE SIDES 18'' FOR PROTECTION FROM BURNER?

    3. IS REGULAR FIBERGLASS INSULATION OK TO INSULATE(WOULD BE AS FOLLOWS: PLYWOOD INSIDE- INSULATION- 1X6 SIDING OUTSIDE)

    4. IF THERE IS A PLYWOOD LINER ON THE INSIDE IS IT OK TO SEAL THE OUTSIDE LINSEED OIL OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT?

    ANY HELP,THOUGHTS,ADVICE ON THIS BUILD WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.WHEN I START THIS PROJECT AND IF I CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO I WILL POST THE BUILD PICS.THANKS AGAIN I WILL TALK TO YOU SOON THE HIGHPLAINSMOKER
