I have a smoker that I made using a Weber Smokey Joe and a 32qt steamer pot, it's a mini wsm. Currently it runs off of charcoal and wood chunks. There are times that I am unable to tend to a fire during the cook. During these times I would like to make the smoker run on electric.
Here is what I have thought about doing:
1. Install 1000w hot plate
2. Install a router speed controller to adjust the tempts of the hot plate.
Here is a picture of the smoker I plan on doing this to:
