Not sure I would have gone with pressure treated posts on a smokehouse as a personal choice.

But you really knocked it out on that one

Had it delivered. After crunching the numbers it only cost about $30 more and was a lot easier than sackcrete.

I also have heard and read that you do not want to us pressure treated wood. There are lots of toxins in it. Which is why the big box stores donít even cut pressure treated wood there

Ok, you got me to thinking and researching.
It is not recommended to burn pressure treated lumber or use for making cutting boards due to the chemicals used in manufacturing.
I do have treated 4x4's in the corners of the smoke house however they are inside the walls, covered and well insulated.
Thanks for the concern, I never gave it any consideration.
Luckily, by design, it won't be a problem!

Yes, hanging rods for sausage and a rack for larger cuts like Brisket, ham and Turkey.

It's a 6 x 12 slab, 3" thick in center and 6" thick around the edge and across at 4' and 8'.
We have black land here so I know one day I'll have to level it and if I put it on top of the ground then I won't have to dig as deep to get under it.
