So I finally got the fridge build ready to be "seasoned". I had it smoking for about 4 1/2 hours, with a high temp of 348 degrees. That was with the 2 electric stove heating elements on high, and a shallow metal cookie tray with some small lava rocks on it. I DO NOT have an air intake cut in the side yet, but I do have a damper in the smoke pipe, and I reached that temp with it open....
So....Here's my 2 questions:
1. Is 348 degrees hot enough to pretty much smoke anything out there that can be smoked?
2. Will the temps get hotter or cooler with an intake vent?
