View Full Version : Freezer to smoker

10-24-2013, 09:57 PM
Hello. I have a True, model T-23 stainless freezer and would like to transform it into a smoker using an internal propane burner. Would it be safe to leave the CFC free polyurethane foam inside the walls? Or shoud it be removed and replaced with other insulation? Also, the inner walls are baked on, painted aluminum, does the paint need to be removed? I do not want any contaminants or toxic fumes created when smoking. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks, chasser

I would remove the insulation and paint. You don't know what the paint or powder coating is. I know the insulation is not fire safe.

caution also to propane...make sure you use a thermo coupler assisted controller
