With the Traeger pellet hopper on the side. Gave up on LPG burners because of temp fluctuations.

Rick-
How did you determine the placement for the Treager portion of this smokehouse? Obviously, smoke, and heat rise - but, is there a formula you used to set the height of it? Is there a method to determine the internal volume that the pellet hopper and burner will serve before you need to supplement it for - say cranking up the heat if one wants to smoke a brisket or boston butts etc...?

Smoke it's a smokey joe gold.
Got idea from vertical weber Bullit forum.
I've made 3 & pretty much have got the build streamlined.
I'll try to find my instructions & post soon.
Problem for you is it only costs $70 or so , not expensive enough to put in your stable ;D

My stable is down to -1- charcoal pit and -1- electric smoker. I am trying to sneak a charcoal basket out back so the misses doesn't see it.
One more addition to my stable and my mailing address will be at the local YMCA :o :o

Thin blue line...   Not this time!  (actually followed by a minor explosion)




That was a bad morning, and it was laziness on my part that caused it.   :(

I hadn't cleaned out my firepot in a while, so the fire got snuffed out.   The MAK will try to relight no mater what, so it kept shoveling pellets in like Casey Jones..    It did eventually light - in the auger itself.   And promptly started burning pellets back up into the hopper..

When it did finally light the pile of pellets and got a whiff of oxygen, it 'popped' like a dust explosion. (or a Big Green Egg if you yank the lid open)    Sounded like a gunshot..


Rule #1.  Keep firepot clean.    ;D
