As i am in Thailand the ambient temps day and night are often around 80 or higher, during the days often much higher.
Also due to the fact that i am far from the USA/UK/AU i can not just whip down to Lowes or Walmart and collect myself a smoker.
Thankfully there is a local manufacturer who makes extremely good stainless grills and smokers, i am having him custom make one so that i can use my dehydrator wire racking shelves, so i can transfer from smoker to dehydrator with zero efforts.
Now as i have the luxury (and the expense ) of a customized smoker, i can/will ask the manufacturer to make some mods.Due to the high ambient temps i want to drop the temps on the smoker. As it will be made from 304 grade stainless, i figure ice will be my friend here.
I was just wondering what everyone might suggest, in terms of great engineering plans for reducing the temps or for how to place/store ice in a smoker to best effect. Let your inner engineer be free, what would YOU do to your smoker if you were in my shoes.
I have a few ideas myself, i am not without my own set of ideas on this topic, i am not asking people to do the thinking for me... just trying to see if anyone has an inspiring thought or some input that can add to making this the greatest smoker on earth.
The dimensions will be roughly
