    In addition to my blower, I got my other new additions installed this past week and weekend. This includes my Allied Kenco Tstat, and capillary tube thermometer (I'm checking calibration in the photos, hence the old hot plate. I also mounted the heating element permanently on the bottom of the inside, and routed the cord underneath. I had intended to do some Slim Jims this weekend, but I didn't have all the mods finished, then it snowed about a foot here, and we had to move about 200 head of our cows from fall mountain pasture to home yesterday. It was a 13 mile drive. We start calving on the first of Feb. so my smoking will likely get put on hold for awhile.

    Thanks for the remarks. The Tstat is set for 0-250 degrees, which will be more than enough for my needs. When used just plugging it in, that element has run the unit up over 230 deg. and I had to open the door to cool things down. Previously, (with hot plates) I couldn't get warm enough, especially with big loads.
