Looking real good. Just one concern... Are you going to roll the Baby out when you cook?

If not, will you have enough ventilation?

Bill,

I plan to leave the smoker inside while smoking. I have 2 gable vents and 4 windows. I have attached 1 exhaust fan to one of the gable ventsthat I plan to use when smoker in use.. Thoughts?

Should do it. Anyone else have a thought?

Size of the fan in CFMs.

Material on the inside walls, ceiling, etc. There WILL be smoke and grease in the smoke.

If the fan is large enough, and you leave all the windows and doors open when it's lit, then the biggest problem I see is cleaning the greasy soot. Windows and door open even in the winter and when it's raining. OK, with all those openings and the exhaust fan, you could probably close the window on the side the wind is coming FROM to keep out the wind and the arctic breezes. ;)

Sounds like you have it covered pretty well? I might add a little platform out the door where you could roll it out of the shack in nice weather?

I cooked on a screened in back porch, 12 X 16, with a WSM and an egg. The overhead got dirty. I now use a Weber gasser on the porch and a fan on a stand during the warmup/clean cycle. This is for meals like chix, burgers, potatoes and steak when I'm lazy. The fan does the job, but I doubt it would work for a smoker.

I have a little 4' wide concrete flat area in front of my garage where I use my smoker, but it's under the drip line for the garage, so I move inside when it's raining. I then use 1 or 2 sections of galvanized vent with 1 or 2 adjustable 90 degree elbows to get the smoke outside. Works great. Only problem is condensation which shows up on top of the smoker because the pipe fits over the stack, not in the stack. Something similar should work through a window, a wall, or a roof. Just a thought.

Hey guys,
Thanks for your patience. Finally got the dorr installed earlier this week. Hope to finish the project within the next couple of weeks. Will send pics soon.

Hey Randy,

Any update pics of your Q-shack? You have inspired me to look at putting my "BabY" into something similar. Also, what is the overall size of the shack, and how are you using it? Inside/outside cooking?

Thanks,
Don

The Que Shack is finally complete. Thanks to Mark, Bob, Bill and Les for the information comments and questions from the Nation. As you can see from the timeline of the pictures it took me a while to complete. I work a bunch , not complaining, and I worked when my good friend Ross was available. I am not very handy and if it were not for Ross there would be no Que Shack.

Have cooked in Shack 3 times now and could not be more pleased.

I like it!

Looks like it'll work just fine as is. ;)

If you want to, you can extend the duct pipe down a little lower, even as low as half-way down the Smoker's chimney and it'll still work, and it will be sure to catch all of the smoke, and will NOT effect the draft at all because it is a larger diameter pipe, and you still have that air gap.

But, as you have seen in your 3 cooks, it works as is.

Congratulations. I need to get to work on my backyard kitchen, and you just might have inspired me to do some work today. My helper is out there already, sleeping on the Tailgater...

BOB
