Hi Everybody!

Post by Krism715 » August 18th, 2018, 8:53 pm

My name is Kris and I just purchased the plans for the Gravity Feed Cabinet Style Smoker. Obviously after years of Bbq, I’m jumping up and down excited about building my own smoker. Would anyone happen to have a bill of materials? Frank is looking into it for me, but I thought I would ask in the forum. Thanks in advance.

Yes, indeed. If you have purchased the DP Gravity Feed, you might want to check with Frank about getting the whole kit. Obviously depending on price it looks like the way to go. If it is the standard or mini then check in with Frank or as BigT said, someone who has recently built the model you have might chime in.
And welcome to the crew.

Thanks for the quick response guys, I appreciate it. I got the GF cabinet smoker, not the Double Pan. My uncle was a master welder on submarines for years and he’s now retired. So I’ve recruited him. Not in a big rush, but I am trying to get a feel for the cost. I’m in the building products industry so I am constantly reminded of the cost of steel these days. Has anyone built this model recently?

I seem to recall someone asking about cost on one of these a while back. Comes down to new vs used metal and location. I, personally, wouldn’t start one unless I had $1500-2000 at my disposal. All the little things really add up but it’s nice that thebuild time can be adjusted to accommodate funds.
