My Smokehouse



So I decided to post some pictures of my smokehouse.  I realized when researching this project that there are really no detailed plans for building a smokehouse, and this post will be no exception.  Due to the nature of a smokehouse it must be built to fit the end users certain needs such as terrain, what is to be smoked, etc., and so like snowflakes I guess no two smokehouses are alike.  Here are a few picks of mine.

Here she is in all of her glory.  I have yet to add the separate fire box, but for now it does quite well using a home made smoke generator.

The smoke generator!  An old metal milk can cut in half with holes drilled in the bottom to light the chips.  Works like a charm.

I used floor registers to control my air intake as well as exhaust.  I am really happy with the control the give me.
