Showed this to my friend and this is his response:

"It looks like it is in his back yard..... friend has the same one in his back yard but his wife was mad at him for using it. It turned out it was his Mother-in-Law house (she was inside when he did his first smoke)" ;D

Hey what kind of temp can you get from this. As a kid, dad built a 3'x3'x12' plywood smoker for doing salmon. It was smoked with a hot plate and frying pan so it got pretty hot inside as to hot smoke the fish. Is yours mainly for cold smoke or will the element you put in it get some good temps inside it.
I like to walk threw life on the path of least resistance. But sometimes the path needs a good kick in the ass.

BBQ

Hi Quarlow, the heating element i have made controllable so i can get a true cold smoke or heat up to 150C (300F) so it makes it a great cooking tool if needed :)

Huntnfreak, it is actually a radiant heater as used in restaurants outdoors to keep people warm while seated

not sure if there are 110 volt as we are 230 volt here, but here is the web link and you could always ask

Thanks for the info.  I don't think I'm to the point of needing that big of a smoker, but I'm guessing it's like a garage.  Always build it bigger because sooner or later you will fill it up!!
