Ways to Heat up a Big Chief. HELP!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

I do all my smoking in the winter in pretty cold temperatures (-25C/-13F) and am looking for ways to get the temp up on my big chief.  What do you guys recommend? Looking for all the help i can get.

 

Thanks,

 

Jake

Jake,

What types of meats are you smoking in the Chief?   You might consider a flame proof insulating blanket,  replace the stock heating element with an adjustable 1000w unit. (I have two Big Chief's with this modification).

If you have a top loader Chief, not sure how I would upgrade the heating element when it comes to placement of the controller switch.   I would need to see a pic of the bottom side of such a unit.
