  1. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]I built this smoker from plans in my head!  I bought the racks from Job Lot and kind of built it around them!  The first year or so I used A-Maze-N dust generator for smoke; worked great...  wanted to step it up a notch so I bought there newest and greatest generator the pellet burner!  This thing puts out copious amounts of smoke for my cabinet!  It is around 20" wide X 40" tall X 14" deep.  I built a separate smoke box to house the new pellet burner so I can keep my inside temp low!  It worked very well.  Inside temps are under 85 degrees.

    That's a great looking smoker!

    May I ask where you got the racks at?
  4. There is a store called Ocean State Job Lot here in CT.  They had them in there BBQ section.  I think Walmart has them as well!  I am building another one that has Stainless Steel grates, so they are easier to clean between smokes!  Good luck!   Morgan

  6. Here is the secret to great smoked cheese...         check this guy out.  He has this dust smoker that I have used for over a year and it works great!  Very simple to do; just fill the tray with the dust, light it and set it in the bottom of your smoke cabinet.  It lasts overnight for me( 6 hours or so)  It does not generate too much heat in the cabinet either.  I just bought one of his pellet smoke generators also...  this thing puts out A LOT of smoke!  and lasts for 10 - 11 hours depending how much draft I give it.  Check them out and you can smoke cheese in a cardboard box if needed.  You do not need a fancy smokehouse or anything special like that, if you have a gas grill you can smoke cheese with this; just don't light the gas burner - use it as a a 'smoking cabinet'   Have fun and happy smoking!   Morgan

    Todd is well known to one and all on this site.  I like your homebuilt smoker.  I can just hear my wife now:  What????  Another smoker???????   I think I'll buy stainless shelves first, then build the cabinet, as you did in the build.  On another note:  I've found those particular trays at Bed, Bath and Beyond too.  They're fairly common, but after some use, they do tend to rust near the joins of the metal.

    Hey Morgan

    Love the smoker!

    I want to make an outside smoker, and this looks like it will work great

    What do you use for heat during hot smokes?

  9. Hi,  Thanks.  I have not used tis cabinet for hot smoking yet...  I just tried the new pellet burner from AmazeN and it gets HOT if I don't throttle it back with the damper!  I forgot and left the pipe wide open and did not put a damper before it enters the smoke chamber, therefore it melted 5 lbs of cheddar last night - when I woke up there was cheese blobs inside!  They still taste good but are nothing to look at!!!  I am going to run a test tonight and set a thermometer inside to see what I can get it up to.  When I hot smoke I use my Weber Q-220 grill and place a pan of dust under the grate, that seems to work good.  Good Luck,  Morgan
