I am t trying to build a propane powered smoker out of this but it gets too hot if I open the damper enough to breathe or the burner goes out if I try to throttle it down. I am thinking the burner needs to go on the bottom, underneath the entire unit. I wouldn't be opposed to making it a charcoal unit. I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions.
This is the outside. It was an old oven. Everything stainless inside and out.
This is quarter view. Notce the damper I built? It is pretty much infinately adjustable.
Here is the damper all the way closed. It is air tight like this.
This is the top and my "smoke stacks" fully open
