Smoker Temp. Control

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I've been smoking sausage in an old freezer type smoker. Something I just threw together several years ago. I started with a couple electric hot plates then went to a propane burner in the bottom. This worked well but I didn't have the temp control I liked. So.......A few days ago I came across a commerical double door freezer which I plan to turn into another smoker(Thing is beautiful!). I'm looking for some help with a better way to control temp. Prefer a dial type control. Don't really have to get over 200 deg but would be nice to get around 250 if I decided to smoke some ribs or a brisket. I can use electric or propane since I haven't started anything yet. Sorry for the long post and thanks fo the help!

Thanks guys! All help is appreciated. I have 110 and 220 available. Anybody ever try to use a oven or stove top and it's temp controls? Been searching on the site and have many ideas. I like the smokedaddy. Thought about getting one of those for smoke and some kind of elect element for temp control. I found a pic of my old freezer smoker. Wasn't much but it worked great. Just wasn't able to smoke more than 50-60 lbs at a time. This one will look better thus keeping the wife off my rear about trashing up the house and property :). I'll try to post a couple pictures. One of some finished sausage and snack sticks and another of the new freezer.
