    well, i happen to have one made of a beer barrel, with a little chimney and all that. made of stainless steel. you could start working from that basis: just go bigger maybe?
    ours works a treat, btw.

    Ok, there are many kinds of smokers,

    One of the best all time designs is the double pipe or double box depends on materiales available, if your here in SD, I can help you find the pipe if thats your choice.

    Anyway, either of these can be used to smoke or BBQ, versitile and popular back home in Texas.

    Tell a little more of what you want, size and all!

    And my biggest interest is what kind of wood you planning on smoking with?????


    I know of no suitable hardwood locally available in the DR for smoking.

    tons of mesquite available here with like 10 different names..

    i'm actually in santiago and i'm a real rookie when it comes to bbq, my best friend is from houston and he showed me some of the basics but it is really like a science and i don't even know where to start.. especially here in the DR..

    i don't plan on having tons of people over or anything so a bbq big enough for 5-10 people will be fine, maybe the size of 4 full rib racks.. i really want to try the whole chicken with a beer can up the rear end that big D in sosua does too, comes out delicious.. i'm going to google the designs you told me about and see what i can learn

    thanks a lot man

    Except that would be a crime against nature and I think it is a penal offense to cut down an oak tree here. Use mesquite and if possible get some guayaba wood and leaves. What better wood than mesquite....????

    To the OP...easiest here is the 55 gal drum, cut in half, with a chimney put on one half and a rack for the coals and another for the meat...works great and dirt cheap..

    While you are building your bbq you can enjoy beer roasted chicken.Just marinate
    the chicken with your secret spices,place chicken on a rack in a roasting pan.Stick
    beer can in the cavity and place chicken in a "sitting" position.roast in a 375 degree
    oven for about 1 to 1 1/2 hrs.Sooo good.
