Concrete block smoker/grill.

MikeToddMikeTodd IndianaPosts: 970 ✭✭✭✭✭
This year I will be building a concrete block smoker/grill. I have used a very large one my dad and I built for whole hogs. I am going to loosely use this design, http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/108738/new-cinder-block-smoker-grill but I want to be able to use it for both family meals and for largr scale cooking as well. 
Any tips or advice you guys can think of?

    @MikeTodd I've been wanting to do this too.  Love it.  I've been thanking about putting a cooking grate over my fire box for grilling, and steel hood or door to cover it when smoking. Just a thought.  
    I was born a fool, and just got bigger!

    I don't have any tips but I'd love to see pictures as you build it

    What are you looking to smoke? I would lean towards the suggestion of a grate over the firebox to grill and then a wood smoke House but that would be me.

    It is more of a bbq smoker and not a true smokehouse for perserving meat.

    What about making a large one but putting a removable 1/4" steel divider plate in the middle?

    I like that idea @silvermouse. Right now I am in the planning stages but hoping to have something up and running in a month.

    I am late to the game, but agree with @silvermouse suggestion.

    Would enjoy seeing pics of your project

    Can't wait to see the finished product.
    Or is that Finnish product?
