I am relatively new to this forum. Been reading for a while. Decided to share my smoker build and become more active. I hail from the peoples republic of Maryland where you have no rights, you just do what you must. I am a diesel/heavy equipment mechanic and a decent welder/ fabricator. I use a cheap cabinet smoker but will soon abandon it for my homebuilt vertical, side firebox stick burner which will be inside the garage with exhaust outside.
