New guy here, have been debating building a smoker for awhile so I gave it a whirl. I picked up the fridge for 30$ on Craigslist and got started. Components include: Bradley universal smoke generator MYPIN T series PID Two 1000w hot plate elements Photos attached. Progress was as follows: Gut fridge Replace plastic with 14guage polished SS Cut fit and weld old oven racks and brackets Install smoke generator and elements Build custom lower storage Install new gaskets I still need to fab up a chimney but at this point I can go from 70 degrees to 250 in about 22 minutes with an outside air temp of 70 degrees. Haven't ran the smoke yet without the chimney but everything else is working good to this point. I got a bit of inspiration from others photos/builds so I thought I'd like to contribute. Total build was around 20-30 hours. Thanks for all the inspiration!
