Concrete Block Smoke House

Post by Frank_Cox » June 16th, 2021, 7:20 am

Man am I excited!
Tom and I hit a big score on way more concrete blocks than we needed…
For FREE!
That’s even better!
So here’s what I got to start with…


I have 2 concrete pads that used to have dog kennels on them back in the rabbit hunting days.
They been cleaned off for years and have been patiently waiting for a new purpose.

Here’s the first pad. It is 10’x10’

Here’s the second pad. The main part is 10’x10’ the runners are not level so I’m trying to figure out what to use them for

Image

Here’s block pile #1.
Each pallet has 60 blocks that are 8x16.

Image

Here’s the rest of mine. Yep, that’s 6 more pallets lol! And a bunch of odds and ends!

Image

I’m thinking I’ll probably make a smoke house that’s approx 5’ deep and 8’ wide inside dimensions and would like to combine a block hog pit on the back side.

Here’s a shot of my son Joe’s first Cooker sitting on pad 2.

The build thread is on here and I’ll search for it later this morning.

What would you do with all these blocks?

I think you have the right idea of a smoke house and hog pit. Looks like a fun project.


Thank reminds me......I have a 7' long spit rod coming to add to my trailer rig bbq for turning big meats.

If I had a full metal shop like you do, I would either sell the blocks and buy more steel or use them to build a nice outdoor kitchen area to block some of that cold wind and snow you guys get. That's just me....lol.

Awesome score tho. Seems crazy someone would just dump that many block with the cost of building material these days.

I just keep thinking about all those country hams, sausages and bacon you could make in that thing. +1 on the whole hog pit addition
