    Some one had asked me to post more pics of my cold smoker. It was put together from my old garage door.
    Hope this helps.

    Very nice. How do you regulate the airflow into the fire box?

    There are 4 1/2 inch hole drilled on the bottom and 12 on 2 sides 1 inch up from the bottom. If I find there is not enough air, I slide open the front door and leave it open an inch or 2.

    The garage door was 16ft long made up of 4 panels. 3 panels were 22" and the 4th was 20". Cut all 4 panels to 8 ft long. Thus giving me 6-22" and 2-20" pieces. Bolted 2 22" pieces together (back wall) and hinging 2 22" pieces together (front with door). Bolted 1 22" and 1 20" for one side and diddo for the other side. Bolted the 4 sides together. Cut the door piece 12" down from the top and bolted the top portion to the side. The roof has 3 2X4 studs screwed into a 2X4 boxed frame that is bolted to the sides of the smoke house. 4X4 sheet of steal for the roof screwed to the 2X4's. Built all this on a utility trailer in the garage on its side. Pulled it into location and stood it up. It's sitting on 4 cement patio stone anchored to them.

    Now do you see it WD????? LOL

    Hope this helps.
