    Default My first cross flow smoker.

    First i will start off with thanking everyone on the site for the great info I have read before starting in on this project!

    I started off with an old fuel drum (which was full of water when I found it) and an old water heater.

    I made some hinges, welded them on, and then cut out the doors.

    I added the lower frame works I think there will be more added later I also have all the temp cross bracing still on in this pic

    built the inside racks which slide in and out for better access to the back side of the grill area and for cleaning when needed.

    I put together the smoke stake next and cut out for the fire box cross flow tube

    After welding the 2 tanks together I started in on the doors and vents for the firebox. also the door latch








    I also built a warming oven.

    I also built a removable basket for the fire but i will need to go get a picture of it as I don't have one yet...

    I am not finished but I wanted to test it to see if I was on the right track. the brisket took 13 hours and the ribs took 4 both turned out perfect for the first test run with no smoke testing.



    More updates to come when I add the wheels to move it around. I also am thinking about lining the firebox with thin cut fire brick as my neighbor is a mason and offered to cut the curves into the bricks for me.
