    I have been lurking for a while and used all of the collective knowledge from this site to build my cold/hot smoker unit.

    I used a bungy cord set-up with Nonex seals so the doors stay tight and won't leak. 1/2" steel rods beveled into the top for hanging. Heavy duty racks from, R30 insulation and Durock lined fire box. I drilled multiple 2-1/8" holes for air inlets and outlets and am using cork stoppers to fine tune airflow. We reversed the doors so that they can be insulated and stay light weight. We have only seasoned and cooked once but the results were outstanding. This weekend a few pork butts will get some smoke lovin'.

    I am not a carpenter so let me know what you think.

  2. Looks Great! I think that's the first time I've seen corks used to control air flow. Good thinking, you'll have to let us know how that holds up.

    Looks great.

    I really like your shelf system. May have to borrow it for my next build.

    It looks like you have the same burner I have from Northern Tool. I found out after the fact it needs a low pressure regulator. After changing mine and adding a needle valve I have very tight control.

    The racking system is from Lowes. It is actually a 72" system cut in half leaving pretty good rack flexibilty.
