These are the basic plans I used but I built mine bigger. 16'x24' I also added a center upright in all trusses. The pad is approx 4+ inches thick and 12" thick under and around the fireplace. I built my fireplace all under roof rather than hanging out the back like the plans. Honestly, I will have to measure the fireplace and grill itself, as I just built it in even brick lengths. I will post a new picture later as the previous ones are from 2010.



Now that is super nice had bluepriints and all...where did you find the prints?

I found the drawings online. They were free. I built mine bigger and am glad I did. With 5 or 6 people sitting around the table, there is still plenty of walkway left on each side. I added the benches too. We've had several family reunions, anniversary parties, etc in it. This pic is current and I still have a few things to do. The fireplace is externally 48"X 34". The grill externally is 44"X 34". The grill surface is 36"X 24". I built a metal drip pan and used gas grill burners. A propane bottle sits under the grill. I really didn't mean to hijack this thread. I hope the info helps someone else.

I can't find a picture of the whole smoker, but I have a Backwoods Competitor. It's got the fire box down below (you can see the stainless steel door below the racks). Above the fire box is a built in water pan. Then the cooking chamber. The smoke comes up from the bottom through the walls of the cooker and inside the top of the cooking chamber. The smoke fills the cooking chamber and exits out just above the water pan into a smoke stack. I can load this with lump coal and splits of wood and not touch it for 8-10 hours. It's a great smoker.

Here it is loaded with some ribs someone ordered from me (and trimmings).



And here is the finished product.


Here's a link to the smoker I have. It looks just like this, just a little more wear and tear.

Thanks BigAl. I hope someone is inspired to build one too. My wife always wanted one. When I built the house behind it in my back yard for my inlaws, I went ahead and set the posts and poured the pad along with their breezeway and garage pads. (48 yards of concrete) After I finished the house, I put the roof on the shed and built the fireplace from a pile of bricks that I moved around the yard 3 times over the last 15 years. The shed sits between the houses.
For anyone interested in building the fireplace grill, there is a 5 video series on youtube that I got ideas from. It really wasn't very difficult.
