I'm in need of some input, I'm going to do some (computer) work for this guy that is a welder, he has made a few large "cookers" and he has some pictures of them I asked him he could build me one and he said
If you have a picture or explain how you want it built I'm sure I can do it, since this is going to be my first smoker I really don't know what I should look for I look at bluzQ cooker and I like it, so ... I need help lol what featuers I want? If I get it built I don't want to have to make mods later
Thanks

slow&low, If you like the ones he built that would be a good start. If they perform. As purplewg showed there are many types and styles. Also consider what you or he has to work with as far as material, will it be a tank? or pipe? square fire box or round? Also since we do not know about his cookers you might ask him to use the pit calculator for your dimensions and hole sizings that way you will be close to if not on target for proper ventilation. As a start I would look for at least a 20'' diam. cooking chamber 48'' long, to me that size is a good back yard unit.
