  1. Hey everyone, building a new Cedar smoker for the first time any pointers???
     
  2. Need some advice on my new Cedar smoker build.. Do I need to do anything before my first smoke??? Or fire it up and roll!!!!
     
  3. Let me know!!!! Cedar build do's and dont's
     
  4. You may want to check out some of the builds on this forum; without knowing what size, etc. difficult to provide do's and dont's.  Definitely use western cedar - eastern cedar is very aromatic and resinous.  You need to break it in with smoke before you start using a new house.
     
  5. Thx dude
     
  6. 2'X2' X 6' tall western cedar pine studs for frame!!

    Nice looking smoke shack. What are your plans for heating it and how are you planning to generate smoke?
     
  8. Well my friend at work tells me to use the northern tool propane burner, but open to ideas!!!!
     
  9. I just got my northern tool burner yesterday. Haven't fired it up though.

     
  10. That's a good looking smokehouse you got there. Got some pics of the inside?

    Nice build. Good work!

    Only advice I have is; to avoid confusion, don't keep it next to the poop shack! [​IMG]
