This is my homemade smoker that I made from a lot of scrap metal from work. All I paid for was the expansion metal and angle Iron. for a grand total of $52. Not bad at all if you ask me. Its made from 3/16 steel and 2x2 1/8 angle iron . Gotta finish up the dampener and basket so I can fire it up this weekend. Yes I know the hotbox is a little large but it was already made and all I had to do was make a door for it. Let me know what you thin of it.
