I have been grilling, smoking and making sausage for several years now and I am finally ready to start curing.
I have been doing quite a bit of reading but there are still some questions I need answers too.
Let me start off by listing my hardware and if anyone is able to help me answer my questions id be very grateful.
A friend of mine deals commercial fridges and hooked me up with this guy. Brand new Fogel 21" CC-7.
I went down to Target and got a small Crane Ultrasonic Drop Humidifier. I also ordered an IMAGE 110V Digital Air Humidity Control Controller, and an Elitech 110V All-Purpose Temperature Controller. They should be here in the next few days.
As far as air flow glows this is my first question.
Should I put a hole in the fridge and install a cabinet fan for airflow?
I saw this fan kit for home theater cabinets and it would make a nice clean look. I am hesitant because of the size of the cooler. I don't know if I install a pair of these that I won't create to much airflow. One out and one in? I would like to avoid having to rely on opening the cooler door on a daily basis for airflow.
I also have a thermometer and a hygrometer that I will place inside the cooler.
What else am I missing? I guess my main concern is hot to get the airflow established and regulated.
