Frank Cox, known as “The BBQ Pit Engineer”™️ has been building BBQ Smokers as a hobby and business for over 13 years as of 2023. Armed with a background in the Refrigeration, HVAC, and Food Equipment Industry for 28 years, he has made his living with temperature control, fluid dynamics (liquid and vapor), and heat transfer in many applications in the real world. His passion, SmokerBuilder, was founded by Frank in 2010 with a small blog and a shop full of tools. The mission was, and still is, to "Teach people to build a smoker".
In 2011 Frank started SmokerPlans.net and started designing plans for customers to build their own pit from materials they had laying around. SmokerPlans.net has grown and now boasts over 200 sets of SmokerPlans™. In 2012 he started manufacturing and designing the parts people needed to build their own DIY Smoker for personal use as well as production use for manufacturers. The parts were sold on several of his own websites and also distributed on websites owned by other people. If you’d like to learn about building smokers you’re definitely at the right place!

All you need to build your own smoker. Everything is well thought out and very simple to use. The people at smoker builders are so helpful and easy to work with, we look forward to doing more business with them.
We purchased 6 kits and had them shipped to Alaska to use for our kids program and as loaner drums for traveling teams. Everyone that uses them raves about how they hold temps and are great to cook on. One team from the lower 48 even switched from his gateways and now runs only Super 55's!
I just bought 4 more kits to have in the Kansas City area when I am down there and my son to start competing with.
very detailed plans, thanks for having this available. I would definitely buy another set of plans in the future
