When I make the heat shield/air gap under the burner do I need to go all the way across the bottom or just under the burner.

You are trying to block the radiant heat from the burner...

I made a little more progress on the smoker today. Smoke stack in and controller box mounted. Soon as it gets warm enough i will get the whole thing painted.

Ok so I'm really close to starting this up. I'm new to all of this. How much smoke is to much ? If something tells me to smoke for one hour at what ever temp how much smoke do I put into it ? I can control the amount of smoke that goes through my smoke generator. Do I just leave it wide open ? I don't want the smoke to over power the food.

Do you have a video of the smoke generator? I'm Hi I?ring but I went a different way, just curious to see yours in progress.

To the right of the box you clicked to put up your picture is a box to install a video...

 

The forum would like it installed as "EMBEDED"....

So I just got a great fridge I think a 1943 General Electric is what it is. Any way I'm going to be staying it here very shortly as soon as the temp comes down a little bit.

My question right now is, is 1/2 pipe big enough diameter for the smoke generator?

For the tube going into the fridge I would say 1".

I finally got my Pid controller hooked up. It's a Rex C100. Anyone have one that knows how to use it. I can't get it to change Fahrenheit. Also after I started it I had smoke from the paint burning off the inside. Is this normal for the first start up ? Do I just let it go until its done smoking.

Alot of the smoker builds I've seen have bare metal on the inside. Awesome build though!

Thought insulation and everything was good. When I fired up the burner it started smoking. I thought the smoke was the paint burning but it turned out to be more. I guess it pays to tear them all apart right away. That was smoldering like that overnight.

First try at spicy snack sticks. Turned out a little to smoky. But still good.

I believe I have the same PID and it is only in Celsius.

I figured out how to change it to Fahrenheit. When it wants you to put all zeros for the unlock code put in 1000 instead. That should bring you to where you can change it.
