First of all, I've been watching this site and gathering information for quite some time. Help from all of you unwitting advisors has been much appreciated. A couple of years ago my Dad gave me his old Little Chief smoker that he used to make jerky on when I was a kid. I've used it a few times, but I decided I wanted something different I could use for sausage and ribs and anything else I wanted. I was going to use an old fridge, but then I found an aluminum resting box from a bakery at the local landfill. It was perfectly clean and had the rack supports in it still. I replaced the plexiglass door with aluminum and added vents and a hole for a gas line or electrical plug. I used it a bit last summer, but when I went to use it this winter, I couldn't keep my temps as high as I wanted. So, I decided to insulate it and sheet the outside with plywood. I don't have any Qview yet because I just got done with it, but here it is.
