    Hi Dope Chef, welcome to the forum, you are in the right place.

    I built my own vertical smoker from a plate warmer.

    Please use this link to view. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/152549/new-member-new-smoker-build

    The advice I can give you from the beginning, is it insulated? as only the top is insulated on mine at it struggles to get above 120'C.

    Any advice on controllers etc, PM (private message) me.
