Hey all,

Been lurking about the last few months, built a smoker mainly to smoke some venison wieners. I found that ribs, turkey and pork butt come out nice also.

Smoker info:
Rough inside dimensions 36"h x 24"w x 29"d
2x4 framing, 1x6 carsiding exterior
1/4" plywood inside lined with aluminum to make clean up easy. Fully insulated floor, ceiling and walls. I use two 1KW hot plates to heat and smoke, max temp of 275°F @ 20°F outside temp.


Added pics of the inside, without racks and the Temp control.

Welcome to SMF, and that is a nice looking smoker. Post some q-views of your cooks when you get time.

Good looking setup! What kind of control you got there? I'm always interested in good controls, as it seems that is what has always been an issue for me. I don't like babysitting and fiddling with my smoker.

It just so happens I work for a company that makes temperature controls and this one is for food service. My buddy writes the code for them so it's only a quick mod away from what I really want. It has two thermocouple inputs, input #1 is used to control the chamber temp and input two is used for the meat temperature. I have it setup with a 2 stage cook, first stage is based on time and the second is based on the meat temperature. So once the meat reaches it's set point is will turn off or go into a hold state until I stop it. The control makes it totally hands off once you start it. smile.gif I can get more detailed with wiring if anyone wants to know.

I should say the control is made by watlow controls inc. model #F2HA-***x-***x aka minichef 2000
