    yankee style smoker

    after making some venison jerky today with a bit of silverside and using a dehydrator I think I want to expand on the idea and build me a big cold smoker,
    I like the look of the american style after watching too much bbq comps on food channel.
    does anyone have any practical experience with something like this??
    I can knock one of these up pretty easy....
    any advice or tips Im all ears.... well eyes!

    Or maybe something along these lines.

    My wife's cousin has a Steam train running on tracks complete with it's own tunnel for when not in use.

    I like your way of thinking, big. Though, for a cold smoker, why not make a smoke generator that burns sawdust? Then you just need a shelved cabinet to hold the meat and smoke

    after a spell of research I have come to the conclusion that I will have a crack at making a gas ring powered smoker.
    It will be with a vertical cabinet (ex water cylinder) and a wood box over the ring.
    so pretty much what you said damz....
    I have the cylinder the ring and a reg so I will look at this over winter in my shed

    Check this out, Smokai Smoke Generator: www.smokai.com - YouTube

    Many of us have made them, they have a simple venturi valve inside. Plenty of info on google too!

    The heat from the gas ring could be almost entirely negated with that design too
