Hi all,

New to this forum, have been BBQ'n for about 10 years. mostly on gas grill. Couple of years ago, started smoking. Started with a mates Orion smoker that was left at my place for a few months, then progressed to a cheap offset. Still very much playing around, and by no mean got anything mastered yet. Looking at building a Insulated Vertical water smoker in the next couple of months after having a play on vertical a couple of months ago. Still very much in the design phase, and trying to use the wealth of knowledge that seems to be on this forum.

Look forward to chatting with some of you, and maybe learn as much as I can from the large pool of talent.

Thanks everyone.

Animal, I have a full sheet metal shop at my disposal. So the sky is the limit. I was thinking all folded Stainless sheet with 25mm insulated walls with a 12" side chamber for controls/water tank/Plumbing/wood storage. I have 48" x 24" and about 8 foot height to work with. So was think 36" x 40" x 22" of cooking. I was thinking along the lines of a clone Myron Mixon Smoker....But have not seen a review on them yet, so finding it hard to justify if I should bother.

As I am in Australia, anything as large as a smoker is going to bankrupt me in freight to get it here. So building is my best option and with having access to the right machinery does help. As I have never built a smoker before and mainly used a cheap offset, I have under estimated what a successful smoker takes. And after seeing the calculator, I am starting to question what I had in my head. I am not yet set on a design and any input would well and truly be appreciated.

I would still consider myself a novice at smoking and am only doing an upgrade due to building an outdoor kitchen and the offset is getting old and not going to fit in the kitchen design.
