Hey Ya'll....Thought I'd show ya my first smoker setup....The big pig cooker was my GrandDads.....its about 35 yrs young, well seasoned.....it only ways about 1300 lbs...its a Permanent fixture in the back yard....I added the old General Electric fridge, for fish, cheese and jerky. Being an electrician, he had the vent door under the fire door set up to open and close to maintain the proper temp. Unfortunately, that device is gone and so is G-Dad, so guess i will have to do it the hard way.....Unless, one of my new Buddies here would know how to set me up...wink wink...
Vent Door was set up to open when needed
Fire door, ( fan is to get the cooker up to temp a lil quicker, lots of steel here )
GE fridge smoker
Chimney system (with both dampers open I get a cooler smoke)
Was going to convert the fridge to propane, BUT, the boy brought home an old Donut Proofer to scrap for the stainless....He was informed that his RENT was now Paid, for this month...lol... he is buddies with a guy with a machine shop, so we are going to build a door with a glass window in it.....But that is another thread.. Hope ya enjoyed my walk down memory lane... Love Ya GrandDad...
