Hi. Loren from Minnesota,what a great forum!! I'm starting a build from a 2 door commercial and have been reading posts but to tell the truth, it overloads this old brain of mine! Some things I understand but some questions also.
I believe I understand....
The interior is aluminum so it should be ok but the plastic door panels and seals will be replaced. The insulation is fiberglass so I think that's ok. The racks will need to be replaced so they don't poison me.
The questions I have...
1. I will use propane for heat as a hot smoker, Should I cut a hole in the bottom on the left side where the compressor was and mount the burner in there or simply set the burner on the bottom inside (right or left) and not bother cutting a hole?
2. Where and how big an air intake?
3. How big a vent- on the top or rear of smoker? Think a blower will be needed?
4. I read about dividing it in half, use one side for hot, one side for cold smoke. There is not a divider in it at this time. Thoughts?
Thanks for the help.
