Hello all I finally got a chance to post something. I discovered this forum quite by accident this past wekend when I was building my fridge smoker. This thing is my first smoker and I built it with stuff I had around the house and is powered by a 1000W hot plate . Not very scientific but the smoked deer roast we had on Sunday was really good. A couple mods needed, the only plastic in the fridge was on the door so I ripped it out and pulled the insulation but found the door acted like a huge heat sink, I had a hard time keeping temps over 190, so now I'm hunting for sheet metal to reinsulate the door. Not in a huge rush for now it will just be longer smoking times but I want to have it done before the winter. Winter's up here in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan get really cold but the way we eat jerky, previously dried in the oven my smoker will be used year round. Anyway I'm babbling on so I'm gonna go, thanks for a great forum, I picked up a lot of info from it so far.....
