First off, let me introduce myself; my name is Stevan and I am new to the smoking forums. I am presently smoking my meats with a Red Brinkman electric smoker, the inexpensive one that has no temperature controls.
I am getting ready to convert an old Masterbuilt electric "cabinet style" smoker to a wood burner. I already have a masterbuilt cabinet that the electric element burned out on, so I plan to remove the element box completely and by putting a pipe in the hole where the wood chip tray would have gone attach a "firebox" off to the side, I guess that would be called an "indirect" smoker. The only problem I've run into so far is finding a wood box to attach to this. Brinkman had shown one on there website but they are no longer supporting this item. Does anyone have a suggestion where I may obtain something suitable for such an endeavor? Any suggestions would be welcomed. I am on a limited income and don't really have much that I can spare monetarily that is why I am looking to build this unit instead of buying something that is already built.
Thank you in advance and God bless!
