Square CC vs Octagon

Post by Pete78 » August 26th, 2018, 7:58 am

Good morning everyone

I was planning on building an Octagon horizontal RF smoker approx 18x36. I have been thinking or changing to a Square CC. I have had a few people ask me to build them smokers and may build a few to sell. Is there anything wrong with using a square CC. Just not sure which way to go and would like some input from all you knowledgeable people here. Thanks in advance for your help

Square is the new cool...check out the Mack build and you'll see a fine smoking machine.

That looks great. I wasn’t thinking that big but more patio sized and without the warming box. Just wanted to be different than all the other round ones

There's a feller on youtube, Allen Tubs I think his name is. He builds probably more hex shaped BBQs and smokers than octogon. Do a search for Allen's welding/woodworking on youtube. Interesting feller with limited tools and a whole lot of skill.
