I am brain storming ideas on how I am going to make my new smoker. I found a huge wood crate from work that is about 8ft tall by 3.5ft deep and 3.5ft wide. So its decent size about the same dimensions as an out house. My plan was to insulate the inside and then line it with tin. I was also going to have the smoke box in the bottom of the smoker and put some type of barrier with vents so I can regulate the heat/smoke going into the smoke chamber. Just looking for any suggestions on how to set up my vents going into the smoke chamber and any other vents I may need. I have also not decided if I will run this off of a propane burner or a hot plate. Any idea's and Picture that you would be willing to share would be greatly appreciated.
