...A-Maze-N Smoker is getting its first run in the grill… I have been reading all the great posts about it...got so excited that I just couldn’t stand it any longer and had to light it up. ...as I'm typing this I'm thinking...such a waste of good smoke...just sitting in the grill... However..., I believe it will work great in the fridge…I’ve just got to get used to not having lots of billowing white smoke from time to time. So far…so good on the test.
I have drilled and tapped the side of the General E for mounting my breaker box (control box). All of the outside electrical panels, conduit, covers, etc have been painted with bronze high temp paint.
I have been in a quandary about the power cable…since I need 220 and have to have a 4 wire system (need the neutral for the PID). Anyway…I posted a Wanted ad on Craigslist for 30’ of soft power cable. I received a phone call a few minutes ago from a man that’s got 80’ of 10 gauge, 4 wire (stranded) flexible outdoor cable! He told me he would take $150 for it…which isn’t a bad price… He asked what I was going to use it for. After the description of my General E conversion…he said…”Heck…give me fifty and invite me to your first cookout with the refrigerator!” I’m leaving shortly to pick it up! What a deal!
The heating elements should be in tomorrow…after that it’s just finishing touches and hopefully will be ready for a seasoning run Friday afternoon…and a food smoke on Saturday.
