So is this built on the ground or slab? Did you build it or have someone do this?
It looks great by the way.

Thanks for the link TexasTealHunter.
I still need to seal some small spots where smoke is still leaking out and start on the propane grill side

I've only used the smoker once and it seemed to draw pretty well. If you've noticed I haven't yet finished putting flagstone on the chimney. I want to smoke it one more time to make sure the chimney is working properly before I finish it

I was just curious, the flue looks a little small, but that doesn't mean it won't work great either.

Seeing this post has me rethinking the smoker purchase. I've been wanting to do an outdoor kitchen anyway...

You sure did a good job on that retro pit! We still have one made in the 40's at my place but it never gets used anymore and it's just fire brick and steel, not nearly as nice as yours.

Good job!
