  1. hello everyone . new to the whole smoking world. i have decided to try and build a filing cabinet smoker. i used to cook pro cook for 13 yrs. and i hate electric burners!! you can not truly control the heat . and i just don't like that. at least with propane you have the controllable flame. and since this is my first build, i am wanting to know what everyone is using ? maybe even a suggestion as to a burner. i am looking into a dual burner, if at all possible. i saw some cool older cast iron burners on e-bay. again thanks for input and suggestions

    I just recently built a plywood smokehouse and this is the burner I used from Northern Tool:


    You have 3 different burners in one:

    1st: left side outer ring
    2nd: center ring
    3rd: right side outer ring

    Plus I added a needle valve:

    so I can adjust the entire burner up or down too. I can get it to hold at most any temp I want it to from 150° to 290° with these different options. Here's the link to my smokehouse build:


    Hope this helps!
