    Yes, galvanisied metal does burn with a noxious green gas that is accumulative, meaning that once you breathe it, it will remain in your lungs. But to get to that point, you have to use a torch, or try to weld it.
    However, with that said, we're talking a smoker here, it should never get that hot in the smoker, you want a slow smokey fire, use greener wood, build baffles so that the smoke rolls around your meat. Granddad's salmon smoker was about 8' x 8' with an angled roof, build fire in back, smoke would fill it and continually roll around the fish. Yummy.

    Yes very true, and when the build was complete you do a pre burn...like any other new grill. just to burn off the c**p. Also as elkslyer mentioned it should't get that hot. A smoker only need to be warm to the touch. If it's red hot then you have a problem....lol

    Just build one giant one! Why would you need two smaller ones also? If you dont have enough meat to make a big batch you can still make your smaller batches in the "big" one?

    because more is better dont ya know,and i dont eat fish so if one is being used for fish at that time then i have my little one for me.ya i might just have to build one thats a no fish allowd smoker.we have 40 acres its not going to take up any room.plus alot a farmer,redneck,hunting friends who will be wanting to use it or them.i wonder if i should just build a small one in my backyard.just for me kind of thing.i dont know.

    You don't eat fish and you don't eat onions, man are you missing out on thing's. There is nothing better than raw fish (sashimi) and sliced fresh onions mixed together. Yum Yum Hawaiians call that POKE. ofcourse theres more to the mix. Some sea salt, chopped fresh green onions,sesami oil, soy sause <---we call that shoyu here. Man now you made me hungry.
