Be sure to save the large vegi bin in the bottom and use it as a water pan. I converted one and the bottom tray was porcilen  and it works great. I have a few photos posted. I use a propane burner called an after burner. The website is http://gassmoker.com/. My photos can be found at http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/57231/refridgerator-to-smoker-conversion

 

Enjoy the build,

 

Bob

I'm not sure about the door yet. I should be going to check it out tonight to make sure it'll work out. If not I've got a buddy that can make me a new skin for the door I'm sure

So this is where I am currently. The bottom is rotted out so now I'm looking to remove and replace that section plus re insulate with rockwool.
I feel like I'm trying to restore an old muscle car now lol.
I can't wait to cook in the dang thing!

18-20 gauge should work for the door. Building a fridge is fun. When I'm at work 14 days a month all I do is want to smoke stuff. I haven't got around to posting my build, not too savvy at uploading pics
