Just an idea.. why not put a Dimmer switch in it  might be a good way to regulate heat less light lower temp.. more light higher temp..

I will get some more pics of the way the build turned out.  I needed to take the top to it to my shop at work to use the box brake so it did not look good but other than that i am happy with the way it worked.  Boston butts this weekend a little dry rub and we'll see what happens.

Third time cooking in it no problem with the lamps yet.  this last round was some real good pulled pork.  I still need to paint the rest of the outside but I think all the testing is done and I now have a easy smoke cooker.  It was a fun project that all my friends thought I was crazy wasting my time on something that would never work.  (that is why I had to finish it no matter what)

So, you happy with the smoker?

Would you change anything?

Been a while since I have been on here but the update is that after cooking in this thing for at least 35 times the lamps are still working.  If you keep them protected from any drippings they will last a long time.  I wish the tray that holds the wood chips were farther away from the lamps, but other than that I would not change anything.  I am thinking about building a big brother to this one using stainless steel.
