I was at a comp in Selah, WA and a guy had a couple wine barrels smokers and he used Smokey Joe knock offs for his heat source.

Not the biggest fan of smoker build posts (makes me feel jealous and inadequate). But I could read this thread all day. Just beautiful!

Looks amazing! I love your work. Nice clean look, and the finish is really great.

Keeping the wood from drying out is going to be really hard to do, especially if you hot smoke in it. Bob's idea of mineral oil is a good one, but it will probably take a lot, and often. Wood does crazy stuff as it takes on and loses water. Being filled with liquid and now being exposed to hot dry air is a huge swing in humidity and moisture content for the wood. This may be a hard hurdle to overcome. Only cold smoking in it could help, but I think it's still going to dry out and contract. Harbor Freight sells an el Cheapo moisture tester for wood. It can help you keep an eye on it. Maybe you leave a humidifier running inside it between cooks?

Yeah it's over a year old and still doing very well.
I went electric because I knew it would not stay air tight and be impossible to keep temps regulated. So it still shows no signs of warping or self destructing.

Ribs it is today! :)

That's neat. It looks like a project I'd like to do, just because it looks like so much fun. I love building stuff like that. Yours looks great!
