Wood stove for firebox

Discussion in 'Wood Smokers' started by s. carolina smoker, Jun 16, 2009.

  1. Hi everyone,

    I am getting things together to build a smoker from a 250 gal. propane tank. I was going to build my firebox and got to thinking that I have an old buck stove fireplace insert and was wondering if it would work for the firebox. I know it might look a little strange but I want heat not a show piece. Do you all think it would provide enough heat for the smoker or should I just build one? Thanks in advance for any replies.

    If it is made of cast iron, you might have a little trouble joining the two. Cast iron can be tough to weld.
