New York Newbie.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My name is Todd, and I am addicted to smoked meat.PDT_Armataz_01_03.gif I fish for a living (charter captain and river guide in upstate NY) and enjoy smoked meat and fish. For years I have had an interest in smoking my own game such as Deer, Turkey and fish. I just got an old oven/stove from my brother that I want to build an electric smoker out of it. The oven still works, and I need help figuring out how to turn it into a smoker. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome Todd.
Glad you found us, just the right people to feed your smoke addiction.

I have an older oven with the broiler on the side and not the bottom.
Have it all taken apart but that's as far as I have gone.
I'll send you a pm and let you know what I am planning on doing with it.
Happy smokes.

Welcome to the forum. I don't know how you would build your smoker, but someone should be along shortly to help out.

Hey Todd, welcome to SMF from a fellow NY'er. I'm a little north of Syracuse here.
Somebody has done the oven smoker build I'll see if I can find the thread for ya. I don't think the oven burner will go low enough for smoking most meats. If thats what you're intent was I'd plug it in and see how low of a temp it will run at using a reliable thermometer. 120° would be ideal for sausage making, 200° for a low would be good for most everything else.
Good luck!
Edit: this is all I can find on the subject, the one I was thinking about might have got lost in the big crash we had earlier this year.

I fish Oneida every now and then, but most of the time I find myself on a boat out in Ontario. My busyness keeps me busy out there.

No, I just love to eat anything smoked. I hunt and fish a lot and have a lot of my game smoked. I now want to try and do it myself. I am excited to the hobby of meat smoking.
