Hiding in my basement closet for who knows how long was a mid 50's coldspot fridge. Since the thing was so darn heavy I couldn't carry it upstairs. I couldn't even get it out of the closet because it was too big for the door. I've been wanting a bigger smoker. Well, one day I thought; I could use the closet queen in the basement and convert her into a smoker. So, I did a little research and I found this forum. I wanted a pellet smoker and I got a lot of inspiration from other builders here who are using the Smoke Daddy pellet hopper ...most notable were @Scootermagooand @Dennis CumminsThanks for the inspiration guys. . Here are some pictures. I threw out the old insulation. I've had several basement floods and it smelled pretty funky. Then I scraped out as much black tar as I could That's it for now.
