    Well here she is 26Wx 30dx8'

    Bought 6" dampers,galvanized sheet metal which are really 5and 3/4 go figure. They had a so called key which I drilled out on drill press and was just bearing down, once it was at that point where just about through and it catches, you that done it know it threw that razor across the garage and broke the drill bit, thank God nobody was in that space.

    Down in there from top, no top yet. Question is are the inlets going to do it, just drilling holes like a WSM. I think it will do the job. Face smoker so prevailing winds are on inlet sides North and south here.  So whachta you think?

    Almost done. Got an antler for door handle to put on yet and trim shingles after it warms a bit. Vents work great. No wind and smoked away on a seasoning burn

    Looks good Dave,  You should be able to hang a lot of meat in there.  What are you using for heat?  I like the shelf.

    How are you going to produce your cold smoke?

    Very nice cold smoker..... What MOSES asked.... how you gonna produce smoke....

    May I suggest Todds AMNTS.... the big one... You will need a fair amount of smoke in that size smoker, for a long period... I think the big tube smoker produces smoke for about 6-8 hours.. not exactly sure..... or one AMNPS that you can light both ends or one end... depending on the smoke you want....

    Amnps. Had it over a year.  Got a post on other in cold smoking, Chex Mix, and smoke is great. Did wonder myself on volume of smoke. Vents out the back and the way I figured was the less escape the more smoke. But also wondered if would have to adjust times on smoke because only did before in an old leaky New Braunsfeld and my 20$ Garage sale verticle Great Outdoor charcoal smoker. So far it has worked although been colder than heck mainly on cheese. You open that door which nooo smoke leaks out of and you got to let it clear or yu'll be chokin. Thanks for lookin, Dave
