Finally, after a few months, and a bunch of shekels my smoker is complete. Here are the before and after photos.
It started with a 1932 Westinghouse Refrigerator.
I have a Pakstat Series II electronic thermostat w/ LED display. (150 degrees to 550 degrees)
My element is the Brinkmann Electric heating element w/cord 120V.
My seals are McMaster-Carr Woven slotted fiberglass, Nomex flat and P-gaskets w/ RTV red food safe adhesive.
Mineral wool and fiberglass board for the inside insulation.
The door have a vinyl vehicle wrap with a custom Art Deco design I made.
My friend owns a car restoration shop so he painted the outside of the smoker.
A local metal works shop provided the smoke stack, air intake throttle (on bottom), and the inside metal parts.
Tomorrow I'm going to smoke a turkey.
I am jazzed.
