First smoke in my newly built upright freezer conversion: Baby Backs and beans

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

This was my first smoke in my freezer conversion.  Was very happy how it turned out, ribs and beans were good, smoker was very consistent.  Only thing I need to do is switch over to chunks instead of chips so I can get more smoke on the meat.

Looks great I do the fridge build also, I use the same element as you but I use the AMPTS  for smoke works great. Are you running a PID for controlling your heat?? What temp can you get it to?? Looks good.

I am using this stepless speed control for temp control at the moment.

I plan to use a PID eventually but didnt want to spend the money for one until I knew how the smoker would perform. 

 

I was able to get it up to 290 degrees when I seasoned it.  It was 20-30 degrees outside the day I seasoned it, so I am sure I could reach 300 degrees in nicer weather.  I have no need to go over 275 degrees though.

Looks great my PID only goes 220 wich is fine for most but sometimes I would like to go higher.
