Re: Masterbuilt Electric SmokehouseI did Illini's mods this past weekend. All went well for the most part:
The vent went fine, but I'm still sourcing the stack/pipe part. I looked at drain pipe for a sink (chrome, 1.5 or 1.25 inch), but neither fit right on the 1" nipple I used. It a stack even necessary? Right now, I'm just using washers over the top to control the vent action...
I needed to add the angle iron, but like a couple others here, my seal sags at the bottom of the door. The install here was a bit more tricky, since I had to take the door off, remove a plastic cap from the bottom of the door, and finagle the seal a bit to make some room so I could attach the angle iron. It worked okay though.
Also added the two door latches.
I'm inthe early stages right now of my first smoke with the mods and I can already see the difference that vent makes.
