  1. I'm a new member just checking in. I have been lurking for a while and soaking in as much as I can for my project. I've found more useful information here than any other source. Thank you all for the advice you have given others; it has also helped me. My project is an outdoor BBQ island. I plan on including an Argentine style grill, a smoker, and a pizza oven, all made of block and brick. Having a little trouble trying to determine proper dimensions and ratios for the smoker to have a good draw. Any advice on that issue would be appreciated.

    Ferdy, welcome to SMF!  Glad you're here with a project in the planning stages.  If you give more specifics what type smoker you want to build that will help folks a lot; hot or cold smoker for example and basic design. 

    Sounds like you are on your way to having a great outdoor BBQ island.

    Have fun!

    Welcome to the forum new Friend! 

  4. Thanks, guys. I'm attaching my drawings. This is my I-want-it-all outdoor kitchen. No plumbing. Maybe some electrical. But for now just masonry. Trying to see how or if I should connect the smoker chimney to the pizza oven chimney. It would be a horizontal smoker with an offset firebox. The pizza oven will be from the Forno Bravo Pompeii oven plans I downloaded from their sight for a very reasonable $3.

  5. Or should I start a new thread somewhere else?
