    Hi my name is hoe and I live in Michigan. I'm new to smoking, I'm looking to build my own smoker and was looking for some ideas. I have an old snowmobile trailer and an old fuel oil tank. I was thinking about using a 55 gallon drum for a hot box but I'm worried how well it will hold up. Also wanted to know if any one had plans for a smoker that did not have a hot box and you just put the wood in the bottom of the smoker with a water tray above it. Thanks

    Welcome to the site Hoe,  I mean Joe  [​IMG]   and to the smoking hobby.

    Best luck with your smoker build.  You'll likely get more response about your build if you post your questions directly on one of the smoker build pages.
