First of all, you have to make an accurate design of the smoker. In this case, you can use several types of 3d drawing software, or you can download a layout from google.

Anyway, my oven is going to be supported structurally with 8-inch reinforced concrete masonry units. Each 16-inch long block has two voids or cells. The wall is reinforced by filling every other cell with reinforcing steel and concrete. This leaves a void, running the full height of the wall that can carry the smoke into the oven I made.

Inside of my oven, I am gonna put a small brick so that I can move it whenever I want and use the lower level smokes. Okay, now, let’s dive into the steps.

Once you have planned and ensured an accurate design, you have to now select a perfect spot. In my case, I have selected a spot in the corner of my brick patio.

I am going to use some high-quality bricks for the outer part of the oven. The entire oven is going to be set on two cubes of brick.

I started by cleaning the sods from the area where the base is going to be. You have to make the foundation sturdily so that it won’t wobble when you finish it off. I will recommend doing some homework on the foundation.

The next thing I used was dry stack CMU blocks and then filled the cells that had rebar in them with concrete. You can enable the front of the hearth with some decorative framework. It will give your concrete some character. I simply wrapped the edges with three quarter inch plywood to give my smoker an oval-shaped decorative look.

Depending on the thickness of your smoker, you have to install the bars in the center. In my case, I have used five bars of 18 inches. It will do the reinforcing work and keep the base sturdy. After that, I have poured around 25 bags of concrete on the top. It is going to work as the roof. I had rented a mixer and used some help from my best pals. You are going to need some concrete vibrator to fill the air pockets. Follow these processes until you finish the entire construction.
