Help with fire sealing


Recommended Posts

Hi. It’s been a while. I have been using my homemade offset smoker up to now with reasonable success. However the last time I used it I managed to scorch the timber base. I’m looking to cut away all remaining timber on the base and replace with maybe a cement/tile board with a 4” upstand around the 4 sides sealed with an intumescent mastic. Just wanted any thoughts before proceeding?

I don't know a lot about fire board but I think it can have a fire rating of 30mins - 2hrs. But I looked at your post history and see your cracking wooden smoker is used mostly for cold smoking so should be fine. 

Best of luck though.
