Default My first test with converted freezer.

I have a commercial freezer that I am converting to a smoker. I have built a control box for it and that is controlling a electric element that I got from a electric bullet smoker I got on CL for $10. Built a cold smoke generator for smoke.

looks great from the out side,hope there's no plastic inside. ugly things get released as plastic melts and burns.the really old fridges were all metal inside and I have seen several of those over the years,a pie pan of charcoal and wood chips would run for a very long time they said

Neat idea, I'll be following this one to see how it works out. I have a pellet hopper assembly http://smokedaddyinc.com/products/pe...ssemblies.html that I was going to build a smoker with but this might be a better option.

I tried to use pellets but if you put too much in they seem to condensate and then expand blocking off the flow. Wood chips have worked great so far.

Its all metal inside except the doors. They have not even began to warp but I do intend to replace with some steel. The hottest I have ran it so far is 225

Here is the controller I built for it. It keeps the temps close to +-1 degree.
