Hi FS, I've got about the same setup as you

describe. 

I don't know for sure but I think my cook box is a little 

smaller than yours.

Assuming you've got 'er sealed up pretty well, when

the weather is decent and fairly warm, it will work ok.

I smoke with mine in the winter and you've got to pick

your days and times.

I have been seriously considering adding an aux

heating element to mine.

The insulation you want is rockwool, brand name

around here is Rokul.

If I can be of any help to you please let me know.

I will get the measurements from mine and post

them on here.

 

Keep on smokin'                             Ed

Whew, it took me a while to find you again.

My smoker is 12.5 cu. ft.

So depending on where you are located 1500 watts

probably isn't going to be enough.

One thing I have done when it is really cold out is

I made a plywood piece just the size of my smoker.

Then cut it in half, cut a hole in it for my smoke pipe.

By using this I can make my smoking chamber as

small as I need to
