Sonny and the middle son have been making venison sausage and smoking it so they decided to build a bigger smoke house. We had the homemade heater already so they set it up behind our house. Sonny poured a concrete base and he used lumber we had sawn at local small saw mill (from pine that fell in front yard during hurricane last summer). He fired it up to see if it would work and it seems to do fine. He made a steel water pan and sausage hooks and grating shelves for the inside. Now we just need something to smoke to try it out. I'm sure the neighbors think we have an outhouse as it sort of looks like it except for this huge stove out in the front of it.
