I am trying to build my first smoker with my dad and need some help. I already have an idea for the overall layout and design I want just need some help kind of ironing out the details and things along those lines. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to build an offset smoker modeled after Franklin's concept. I am trying to basically make a backyard friendly sized mock up of a Franklin smoker. I want it to be small enough to be easily moved around and big enough to be able to hold a good enough amount of meat to cater to any good sized house party. The amount I have in mind is from the front of the door to the back I want to be able to fit at most two briskets and then be able to put in about two more pork butts or racks of ribs next to that. I think that is overkill for what I want, but that would be the max amount of meat I would ever want to cook at once to give you an idea of the size I am looking for. I want it to have two doors so i can line 3 thermometers from front to back at grate level to get accurate readings on all three of my heat zones. Single grate along the entire thing. The smoke stack to be lined about with the grate as well to create optimal airflow and smoke distribution. That is pretty much what I am going for. Again any guidance is very much so appreciated. Thank you!!

If you go back to the forums page the forum below this one "cookers" is where most of the builders hang out. Many of them don't venture over here because they are busy with a build. Better yet spend a few hours there if you have it available and read through some of the builds, you will probably run across exactly what you are looking for. Most show step by step, excellent pictures and during the build ask questions of the most knowledgeable builders on how to correct any unforeseen issues they have encountered. I don't build myself but have probably spent 100 hrs over there admiring other builds and the amazing craftsmanship some of the ringers are capable of. Good luck.
