    Has anyone ever put sliding hardware used on draws and pantries's on there shelves . Will the smoke gum them up to the point of not working?? I just was wondering if someone has tried it and if it worked i was thinking of doing it myself on my build but did not want to waste the time and money if it doesnt work.

    Never thought of doing that interesting idea. The smoke may give you some trouble after awhile but nothing a bit of cleaning wouldn't fix.

    I'd agree with that, you'd have to clean them on a regular basis, oil them, etc. but should work; make sure you use good quality ball bearing ones.

    What would be a good eatable oil to use????
  5. I wouldn't use them. You would need the heavy duty roller bearing ones and there would be no way to keep all those bearings and slides clean I don't think. They would eventually lock up. Why not just use some angle iron?

    If you were to use them, I would use a good quality Stainless steel type. As far as oiling them I would suggest using a food grade mineral oil....

    I really like mineral oil.  Great for cutting boards and almost any wood in the kitchen.

    Never tried it under heat, tho?  I would think that it, like most other oils would gum up in the heat of the smoker.

    Good luck and good smoking.
