Default Re: Finally Starting My 42" Manteca

I built my smoker out of firebrick. I also laid rod iron for hanging and shelves. The pizza oven is still the best, but the smoker is not far behind. I have cooked three turkeys, two briskets and ribs at the same time. The fire brick retains the heat and the real wood smoking is evident in the taste. Harder to keep temps even, but not that hard once you get the hang of it. The grill is great because I can and have cooked for the whole varsity football team on it. Make sure you build it to a width that will allow you to use grates that are used with normal barbqs. I built both on a dry stack of cinder block and then hardi-backer and then started my build. For the roof of the smoker I just laid flat iron and built across.
