My version of cedar smokehouse

    I was reading this forum when a user started posting pictures of his cedar smokehouse and I thought to myself I have to have one of those! So I started gathering material from family and friends and after a year and a half I finally completed my version of the cedar smokehouse at a cost of only $400.00!!!

         I decided to use field stone instead of brick and also made an over hang to stay out of the weather a little. The foundation used 39 bags of cement to make it a foot deep by 5' wide and 6 1/2' long. My outside dimensions of the house are 42x42 inches and 96 inches to the peak.

         The inside is 38x37 with three shelves which I will post pictures of soon. I made the walls 4 inches thick, inside I used 95 year old tounge and groove flooring from my family farm. I then put fiberglass insulation in the walls to insulate it more for winter minnesota cooking.

         Eventually I would like to install a light under the overhang so I can see my brisket in the middle of the night instead of holding a flashlight in my mouth!!!

    Yep.. this guy hasn't been back in a couple years. To bad.
    When I was a kid we had a couple butcher shops that had smokers. They were cinder block ones out in back of the meat market. I can't remember how those things got the smoke though.. where they put the coals and wood into them.
