Has anyone tried this?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Came across  this smoker looks like a southern pride...thought it would be great for a small bbq joint :


Looks good, but can not really afford it...
Got to looking at some of the pics and noticed it had an auberins PID controller


So I get the bright idea to convert a 500 gallon reverse flow into a gas assisted set it and forget it.. Has anyone tried this or know all the parts I may need for the MOD???
 
Any help would be appreciated..

yes but that's BBQ blasphemy around these parts! well, you could always buy 2 of the biggest V burner kits for propane other wise you will need a pretty damn big heating electric element if using electricity.

Yes, it has been done.
Some commercial pits have a "log lighter" option that is basically the same thing.
If you build one yourself, get a gas valve similar to those used on gas furnaces or water heaters that will shut the gas off when no flame is present.

Serve tomorrow what you cook today and get a good night sleep.
