I've introduced myself, and now I'm ready to ask some questions -
1. - What kind of hurdles can I expect when converting this ice box to a smoker, i.e. unsafe original materials, proper heating methods, ventilation???
2. - Who are the good component suppliers? I don't want to spend a fortune, and I don't need the "best".
Specifically, I want to go with electric heat source(s) at 110V and I don't really need to start with the cold smoking until I become proficient at hot smoking.
Here's a couple pics of the ice box -
It's a true "ice box", no electrical at all. I have the original top, and will only need to close off the top back portion, most likely with some sheet metal.
Let the suggestions, comments and encouragement begin!
