What Kind Of Wood Do You Use To Build A Smoke House? [Solved]

Have you ever seen concrete block foundation for a home or similar structure? These blocks have openings that look like squares on each side, with concrete running down the middle. A more common name for them is “cinder block,” and according to HomeAdvisor.com, costs run anywhere from $1 to $3 per block. Use these blocks to encase your smokehouse BBQ. It’s the perfect foundation, plus its cheap and easy to find in any city or country. You will need roughly two dozen cinder blocks which means you might spend upward of $72 for the foundation of your smokehouse. Before placing them, create a cement surface layer that’s two to three inches deeper. This layer will help prevent frost heaving, which will increase the longevity and sustainability of your smokehouse structure. Now, you just need to shape the cinder blocks into a square structure. But, you must leave an opening on one side at ground level for the smokehouse pipe (aka, the flue pipe) 🔥 This pipe attaches to the fire pit and is the feeder tube that transfers smoke in from the fire pit 👍 From there, the cinder block structure serves like a chimney as smoke heads upward.
I’ve been giving a lot of thought towards building myself a modest sized smokehouse for cold smoking and hanging. My current smoker is a horizontal and I aspire to hang some salmon, sausage, birds, bacon (man do I wanna do some belly!). So now that the wife and I have gone rural and have the space I thoughtughtught maybe I had could put something together. I’ve seen several articles demonstrating a block wall structure, which I like because it seems easier to build. But I love the look of the wooden smokehouses and am wondering what type of wood to use for the framing and exterior. Does the exterior get sealed like a deck or is it had just let be to be what it is? I googled “smokehouse plans” and low and behold, the second article was from the SMF! It was a good example, and I’m certain I can build the structure, but I am wondering how important the wood type is. (we really appreciate Teagan Barth from Zinder, Niger for their feedback).

Smokingmeatforums.com also mentions how oK- I’ve built the smokehouse. 4x4x8 with a 4 x12 roof pitch (shed type). For the roof I used steel R-panel, which I think will give me some good draft, since the stuff has a 1.5″ corregation every foot. Now the only question I have is regarding the firebox. I intend to put it 10′ from the smokehouse and run either 4″ or 6″ pipe for the smoke delivery, but I’m wondering what to use for the box itself. I have at least a dozen 55 gallon drums around here, but don’t know what was in them. Two of them I had know had SULFOLANE-A in them, which I know is a solvent. Can I safely use one of those those for a firebox, or do I need to go to the expense of new sheet steel? (emended by Roy Allen from Dongying, China on May 28, 2020)
