My name is sleak75, I'm from Eastman, GA.  ..This is my first time on here.  Found your page looking for some help on my new project. Right now I have 150 gallon offset cooker and a 22.5 Weber grill,  I want to build a new cooker, so I found a Scotsman ice bin real cheap.  Wanted to see if any of you guys can give me some idea and or to tell me if it;ll even work.

Is it one big box on the inside or is it 2 bins stacked on one another?

I was wondering about the insulation too, we had a few threads going a while back about the safety of foam insulation and how much heat it will take. you might try doing a search on it.

Do you plan on hot smokes or cold, or both?

It's made up of two boxes but when put together it has one big inside.  I would like to do both hot and cold smoking. And I would like to use wood and charcoal.

I think that the insulation in that ice box is just sprayed in or sheet styrofoam. Wont take alot of heat.

ugh!....You think it will be hard to gut it?

post #18 of 20

Don't know if it's riveted or screwed but all you can do is take a panel off and see how hard it will be. replace it w/ mineral woll or hard board .

wear gloves long sleeves and long pants and a dust mask. when handling mineral wool
