I finally got the smokehouse smokin'(trial run) I believe its gonna work out fine. Got an old pot made from 24" diameter pipe. Welded legs and handles on it, It didn't burn too good a first so my brother-in-law come up with this idea to cut vent holes on the sides near the bottom and added a dial damper to control the air flow through the coal bed. It works great. I got two hogs in the pen, 28 cents a lb at the auction barn, gonna feed them for a couple of weeks or till the weather gets right with humidity down far enough for smoking sausage. First time smoking my own sausage, I'm anxious to see how this comes out.

In 2001 I got a smoker for Christmas and let me tell ya, the saffire and diamond ring was nice, but golly, the smoker was the greatest of all. (although this years heated foot massager could be real close). Anyway! I do not know how I ever survived cooking in the summer before I got my smoker! Two days a week I smoke meat for the week, then I do not have to cook inside! I have smoked nearly every kind of meat! I think the family fav is the smoked salmon. Its more dessert than anything! But I have smoked veges, corn is excellent smoked, I wrap tater in foil and put them in the smoker, I have made stew in the smoker in a dutch oven, and much more! In the winter it is harder to smoke cause the wind is bitter cold, but, sometimes I brave it just cause I need a taste of summer (ribs and brisket!). As a matter of fact, if the temp will stay above 25 this weekend, I may just smoke me a duck or two! Have a grand time with your smoker! I love mine!

Bambi, this "smoker" is 6'by 6' and 8 feet tall. It's not used for cooking anything, only for smoking pork and/or deer sausage in amounts of 100 lbs or more at a time. I'm sure I'll only use it once a year. But I do have one of those little bbq smokers, Usually use it for smoking/cooking turkey. I agree they work real good.

Now I am jealous. Just think if we were neighbors, you could smoke the big things, we could smoke for dinners the small things, and I would trade you all kinds of homemade jams and such if you shared! :)

I think you're gonna have fun. Ought to get one of those "Foxfire" books. They have a good section on smoking hogs and about everything else. Fun reading too.
