Thanks I was going back through old post and saw your original post. Looks like a nice smoker.  I'm going to build a 55 gallon one can you run multiple grills in yours.  Salmon seasons coming and want to do some big batches. I was trying to figure out if I wanted a electric element were I can adjust the temp or just run the set one like you did.  Should be a step up from my old electric Brinkman. I think this could get addicting!!!  John

You could add more grates no problem, also you could just take a dimmer switch and make a box that you could plug it into to adjust the wattage. Just make sure its rated fro 1500 watts.

The ceramic pucks are they under the element and are they just the things one would buy for yard walkway??

Also being it is elect with chip pan do you not worry about a input hole on bottom??

I use chargriller pucks under the element they have them at Home Depot in the outdoor section, you can't see them because of the plate on the element. I do have one ball valve on the bottom to regulate air flow.
