Did you ever try out the turkey fyer burner inside your smoker?  I am thinking of building something similar to yours.  It looks great curious how it works for you??

I use a turkey fryer burner in my smoke house and it works great.

Any chance you could post some pictures of yours?  I would lie to try and build a smoker but not sure on what would be best for the heat source.

Thanks nepas! It is still earning its keep. To be completely honest I wish I would have built it bigger to keep up with the size batches I have been running. :)

 

I have found the flexibility of having both electric and propane is a huge advantage. I use the electric for cold smokes as well as dehydrating and the propane for warm smoking.

Looks GREAT Solar!

 

And awesome looking stuff coming out of it!

 

Maybe since you didn't make it as big as you now wish you did, you might want to make a twin to keep it company???

Very easy. My burner has a needle valve on it. I use the hot plate for cheese though. Propane would get too hot.

I added some wood chips to a cast iron pan and looked for leaks and didn't find any so I am pleased with our construction. At this point I have some concerns about temps. I may pillage some burners from a stove a buddy has since I have 240v wired in my garage for a welder or I may look into a turkey fryer burner. More to come...



For the interior burner in my smoker I purchased a nice low pressure low profile outdoor cajun cookware burner.

From shoppers choice.com.. It works great for the smoker! had to poke a few holes in the burner because the black paint had closed a few off.
