Hey guys. I just got my new PID, SSR and thermocouples in the mail yesterday. It was my intention to originally install this into my MES 30.but at 650 watts, I just don't think it would be that beneficial.
So....I am going to just keep using my MES 30 until it dies, and during that time I want to BUILD a vertical electric smoker.
So...my questions are...has anyone built a Vertical, electric smoker here that may have some DIY plans or photos? I want to use wood..as I don't have access to alot of metal working tools.
Anyway...my plan is to build a box about the size of the MES 40..maybe a tad bigger..and then install a heating element in the bottom with a smoking bowl that sits on that, and then smoking racks above it. all to be controlled by the PID controler.
Hoping to find a 1200watt element to install in the bottom.
Any pointers, advice, photos, plans would be much appreciated.
