Finished Smokehouse - pic heavy

Post by bamsbbq » Mon Sep 28, 2015 08:34

it took me a few days of building. let me clarify, i have zero carpentry skills..lol

i use tongue and groove fence boards - they were cheaper to buy in full length panels and remove each board than to buy each board individually.

made with cedar - propane heated - amazentube for cold smoking

Nice job! If I could offer a suggestion, if you haven't already done it, I'd get some sheet rock screws and screw the boards in place to keep them from shifting. Its an easy job and well worth the effort in the long run.

Good looking smoke house, wish I had something that size! And that sausage is definitely a winner! Is one amazen tube capable to supply enough smoke to something that big?

I actually used deck screws to fasten all the wood. They were brown and grey so they dont show much in the pictures.

I did some smoked cheese the other day. I have the small tube. It was enough to smoke the cheese from start to finish.

Smart move. I made one in a similar fashion and the boards began to walk on me. Screwing them after the fact proved difficult. Just trying to save you the same grief.

thanks i appreciate it...i made sure if i was going to build a smokehouse, i was going to use proper screws...but where i live, it rains very little so rusting things are generally not a problem except my cast iron cookware..lol

Looks great! I can help you out with a cheap smoke generator that will definitely be adequate for that size smoke house. Let me know if you are interested. The a maze in tubes work great, though you have to have chimney draw..

For someone with minimal carpentry skills that's a job you can be proud of. It's wonderful and should provide many years of service. Again job well done. Tom
