i am starting a build on a 1972 COLDSPOT upright freezer. have crawled all over the smoker build forum but still have a question.
Do i need to get off the tar adhesive that held the insulation in place, and if yes how the hell do i get it all off ?????
i have been scraping at it but cant get it all. there is very minimal rust in the bottom i want to deal with. the original insulation is cherry condition so i will reuse it, only a couple square feet was wet from sitting outside at the dump before i LIBERATED this beast ... ha ha ha
components will be : Brinkmann 1500watt conversion heater
Auber dual probe controller
Foam rubber Bulb seal from Mcmaster - Carr
Masterbuilt Smoke generator and may go to the A-MAZE-N-PELLET-SMOKER 5X8
right now i have alot of alder chips so i am trying to figure out how to get them to sawdust texture....
i love the plug and play simplicity of theses parts. as for the extra metal work and vents i need ... its all covered. have some buddies with a machine shop that loved the bacon i made with the little Masterbuilt so they are pitching in with the upgrade :)
THANKS for any advice that can be offered up
