Hello all, new at this so bear with me. I got this chest freezer for free. It has a bad compressor. Its a Kenmore 5.0 cu. ft. The inside
dimensions are 27" deep, 23" wide and 15" across. I was thinking of putting an electric element where the compressor compartment is and pipe the smoke into the bottom, maybe put a water pan at the bottom then add a couple of racks. The insides are Aluminum.
The lid is plastic but I planned on covering that with a piece of sheet metal (covering gasket to). Do you guys think this could be made into an adequate hot smoker? Thanks!
