Hi everyone, i am searching for some advice. I want to transform a Stainless steel freezer into a smoker. It is a True, model T-23. This will have an internal propane burner. After removing all of the electrical items, condenser etc... do you think i need to remove the CFC free polyurethane foam from the walls and replace it?. My biggest worry is that if it would be toxic. I do not want to contaminate the meat.
I do not have this freezer yet, so i do not know how much work it will be to dismantle the walls. I am hoping that i do not have to. Any ideas would be very helpful. Below are some specs to the freezer:
300 series stainless steel exterior with white aluminum interior to
match cabinet liner. Doors extend full width of cabinet shell. Door
gaskets of one piece construction.
• Lifetime guaranteed adjustable torsion type closure system with
aluminum block supports. The face of each door fitted with a 12"
long recessed handle with sheetmetal interlock. Handles are foamedin-
place to insure permanent attachment.
• Entire cabinet structure and doors insulated using foamed-in-place
CFC free polyurethane foam.
• Adjustable vinyl coated wire shelves (3 per section). Shelves capable
of supporting up to 250 lbs.
• Full height shelf support pilasters, with double oblong holes on 1/2"
centers. Pilasters made of the same material as cabinet interior. Four
(4) chrome plated, stainless steel shelf clips to be included for each
• Incandescent interior lighting. Light(s) activated by rocker switch
