I assume you will be replacing the insulation as part of your build. The current insulation will not hold up to the heat of the smoker.

Should the thread title actually be "Starting the new build "Smokin' Reefer" ???

Either way, looks like a great project!


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

yes the insulation was a nasty fiber something... LOL it will now be mineral wool

yes the drive will on the left side and the 5" exhaust on the right side pretty low to increase the smoke dwell time.

yes on the spelling I was tired when I posted this...
