Gas Box Smoker ??

Discussion in 'Propane Smokers' started by bluegillman, Dec 13, 2007.

  1. Has anyone tried to insulate their gas box smoker. It gets awful cold in my area and it would be nice to find a way to hold the heat in for better control. Any ideas? I have pastrrami to go in soon. Processed 25 lb. of venison burger tonight to freeze and get out later to smoke in sticks and balogna. I have been using sasafras to smoke with and really enjoy the flavor. Some reports say it can cause cancer, but I guess anything we eat can have negative feedback. Has anyone else used it? Thanks for any help.

    Wrap that puppy. I have a 8" length of sisal fiber carpet I use. Worth 50° of temp. Sassafras? OK...seems a little aromatic for me, but if ya like it...so be it. No one here gets out alive.

    Rich is right. Wrap that thing with some sort of insulator. You might try modifying a water heater blanket.

    In the 40's I have used a quick fix by wrapping the smoker in tinfoil.
