SO i have a customer that wants me to build
going to build it in the same manor i built my last one but tweeked a little.
already built the one on the right, now to get started on the left fridge.
Going to be electric with a 1550w electric finned strip heater controlled with an Auberins 1800w dual probe PnP controller and a smoke Daddy Magnum pig as my smoke source. it will be in a hot kitchen so i am not concerned about heavy creosote build up that some people complain about.
Just like my last build i will be putting all my controls into a custom control box like this. Makes mounting the PID way better looking and safer.
list of supplies
Auberins dual probe 1800w controller http://www.auberins.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=381
rocker switch for main power, you can reuse the switch from the Auberins controller if you're careful dis-assembling the unit, otherwise take the switch into an electronics place that sell the components youll need and match it up with a new one. like this one http://www.be-electronics.com/product_p/2600r11e.htm
toggle switch to control the air pump on the smoke daddy http://www.be-electronics.com/product_p/42-210-1.htm
wire terminal for wiring everything nice and clean and easily http://www.be-electronics.com/product_p/6eds.htm
The control box has to be no less than 4" deep/ the one in my 1st build is 8"w x 8" h x 4"d and it seems to be the perfect size.
the tw switches in the pic are for the convection fan and element i sue for smoking in a mailbox mod type of smoke generator. Because i use this one at home and outside in the winter i am thinking of adding a switch to tunr on the leemtn and bypass the controller. Reason being is that when i turn on the smoker and its colder than 30F i have to somehow warm the unit up over 30F before the controller will acknowledge the temps and turn on the element. Wont be an issue with my new build as it will be inside its whole life.
Ill have the rest of the components next week and start to put it together with a step by step via photo's.
