As luck would have it, my 1.7 cu.ft. little cube fridge at work conked out; it was by Haier, a semi-conductor fridge (no compressor, semi-conductor hot/cold technology). It was 3+ years old and used at work constantly so it's time had come; for Father's day I asked for gift cards so I could go buy a new fridge, this time a GE 4.5 cu. ft. floor model that holds much more, and is compressor driven (but Energy Star compliant!).
So... what to do with the little one? A perfect cold smoker for a cold smoking device that generates little heat - the A-Maze-En smoking unit (patent pending)! Sure, it's all plastic inside, but.. with little heat it should be little bother! I wrote to Todd Johnson and asked his opinion and he said, "Sure! Go For It!" so here's what I came up with:
Removed the semiconductor and fan plus the electronic board. If you look from the inside, you see a supplementary fan inside the body. It is moot if i cover up the hole, so I cut a piece of plywood and sealed it with caulking and screwed it down, plus put a little caulk on the drain hole to seal that. Those were the only holes going into the inner chamber.
Got to fix dinner, will be back with more of the build!
