I have cold smoked salmon with it before, but it's high maintenance. Build a very small fire on one end, both vents closed, exhaust full open, meat opposite the fire. I could maintain ~ 100 F without too much trouble.

Even for hot smoking, it's not set and forget. I tend the fire at least once an hour and check the temps periodically after adding a log until they stabilize. To me the benefits of smoking on an offset far out weigh the effort, and it's not much more effort if you're out brewing anyway.

The nice thing is that 225 seems to be able the sweet spot with this design. I crack the air door about an inch and all three dampers open wide and it will cruise along.

I just got the green light on this.

I'll make the door bigger than the cut out so the gasket can be screwed down.

VERY nice job!

Super Cool! I doubt I'd ever want a smoker that big, but building it looks fun!

Oh, sweet, KISS is on now with their disco anthem, I Was Made For Loving You"! Dig that tune!
