That had nothing to do with the smokehouse only had to do with your sinful heathen ways.

Here is a few pics its sealed pretty good I am letting the caulk cure a day so maybe tomorrow evening can start a fire and see how it goes heres some pics.

Yes sir that wood turned colors pretty darn quick...I may put a damper in it too. Yea I figure only thing I will do is put maybe 8 hams in there and then use it to smoke hams and bacon few pigs feet ears . I gotta see if I can build a few racks in there to put fish or whatever on. I will have to see if I can find some old ovens somewhere and get those racks out and put them in there. I had several people ask for a ham once I smoke it and cure it... NO WAY... 8 country style hams might be a bit much for us though.
