Build a smokehouse in 11 easy steps
Step 1: Cut the sides of the smokehouse
Faustman and Blodgett recommend tongue-in-groove pine because it is easy to work with and cost effective. Where needed, the tongue on the outside edge of walls can be removed with a utility knife. Do NOT use pressure-treated lumber, since smoke that comes in contact it will contact your food.
Fit and clamp together 5 boards, with the edge groove facing front and the tonghe (removed) facing the back. Measure the front height to be 6', and the back 5'9". Snap a chalk line between measurements to make an angled top line. Cut with a circular saw. Repeat in mirror image for the other side.
