WaysideRanch--I bolted the fridge to a post in the ground to prevent the neighbor kids or our winter winds from tipping it over, and I need 125' of extension cord to use it. The original one burner hot plate with dial control didn't give off enough heat for finishing summer sausage when it's -20*F or so outside. The replacement for it has two bigger burners, but each has only an on/off switch and I have to control the heat with airflow. I used it with both burners last Sunday to smoke a couple fatties, and by the end the plug on the hot plate was showing signs of melting. I don't want to start any extra fires!
