I finally found the right fridge that I wanted to make into a fridge. This is my first smoker.

It was really nice to have friends give me the aluminum and stainless used in this build that I didn't have to pay for.
Through Facebook I acquired this 1930's Servel Electrolux Gas Fridge.
Back side of fridge with refridgeration removed.
Freezer section removed from inside.
Smoke stack installed
Fisrt half of rack structure. I used 1.25" aluminum box tubing to accomodate for the 2" offset between the door opening and the inside walls. I had 5" wide aluminum that was ripped in two and bent into 1"x1.5" angle and riveted to the aluminum tubing. Also shown is a 5/16" aluminum heat deflector on the bottom.
Rack system is complete and inside opening covered with 13ga aluminum with cutout for smoke stack.
Fresh Rustoleum Hammered paint job and the cart I made with 6"casters is bolted to bottom of smoker.
Afterburner LP Gas burner installed
Installed the Maverick ET-732 temperature probes through the aluminum plate using hi-temp silicone gaskets.
Stainless steel racks installed. The racks we my biggest issue trying to find the correct manufactured rack without spend over $200. Just couldn't find the right size that I needed. A friend of a friend had large stainless grate panels and he gave me one that made 8 racks. Just need to run them through the brake and make them straight. Just being anal.
Back side complete with an aluminum panel, 6x6x4 junction box and a plate shelf installed on the cart for the gas tank.
The 6x6x4 junction box housing the Maverick ET-732.
A 4 hour seasoning is complete and will be ready for its first 2 butts in a few hours for a New Years Day feast.
