    Not my first post but I figure I should say hello. I've been smoking mostly salmon and the occasional rack of ribs in my smoke vault for the past few years. I recently moved back to Fairbanks from the rural western village of Bethel. I recently sold the smoke vault and I am building my own stand up propane smoker based on a build I found on this forum.

    Welcome.. . Kind of? Nice looking build. You have to worry about bears getting at it?
  3. My brother lives in Chugiak and had a box similar to yours, used a rubber propane hose to the burner and eventually the oil from the salmon broke down the hose and he lost his smoke box and at least 20lbs of salmon, he rebuilt and has a stainless gas line to the burner now, just heads up :)

    Bears aren't an issue so much where I'm at, all though it's not out of the realm of possibility. The hose comes up from under smoker and hooks into the burner, so it shouldn't be affected by any juices not caught by the drip pan.
