Interesting build. Tell us about it. If I saw that in the woods I would be thinking redneck still .
Either a still or waiting for blast off !!! How does it smoke ? Unusual design I like it
Just did a test run. Works pretty good as far as even heat and can get up to 400 degrees f. Worked better than I hoped for.
The fire box is 30 inch pipe with two baffles in to get indirect heat. Lower baffle also serves as water tank to as steam. Has 2 dampers 6x6 for air to fire box. Cooking chamber is an old concrete mixer with 6 rpm motor spinning the racks inside. Building one more rack for doing ribs. Put a draft booster fan on the recirculating tube to take smoke from the top and blow down. Convection smoker? Material is 3/8 to 1/2 so it is real heavy but holds heat well.
Temp is very even top and bottom
That's pretty darn close
