    GE Monitor Top Fridge Build

    Please tell me the Monitor Top compressor was no longer functional when you decided to do this conversion? Working units are becoming very rare and have become quite valuable, and non-functioning fridges can be found dirt cheap because most use Sulfur Dioxide refrigerant that is very dangerous...

    Finished building my first smoker, tested with a chicken, and now the main event! PORK!!

    Anyone know how and why this thing reached temperature so fast? I just tested my temp controller and the BBQ temp gauge in boiling water and they are both accurate.  I found via the site search engine some other people who had similar overly fast cook times but didn't find an answer other than...

    Finished building my first smoker, tested with a chicken, and now the main event! PORK!!

    Hmm... Well that cooked MUCH faster than I had anticipated. I'm kinda scratching my head as to how an almost 11 pound butt managed to be done in under 10 hours. The heat was kept at a very steady 210-225'f except for that 15 minutes or so at the very beginning when it ran up to 300'f. Im sure...

    ^^^ I will definitely take some photos of the finished product. The smell of smoke is making me so hungry. I have a feeling i'll be making breakfast much earlier today. I'm beginning to see why people spend a bunch of money on those high tech controllers with remote monitoring. A few minutes...

    Finished building my first smoker, tested with a chicken, and now the main event! PORK!!

    Well... it's been on for about two hours and I think i've got the temperature dialed in pretty good. It's been bouncing between 105'c and 106'c which is spot on 225'f. My little temperature controller seems to really lose accuracy over 100'c, so I'm going to probably replace the thermo-couple...

    Finished building my first smoker, tested with a chicken, and now the main event! PORK!!

    A few weeks ago I decided to build myself a smoker after a rather unpleasant experience at a Southern California BBQ spot I had lunch at, so I found a 55 gallon drum on Craigslist for $15 that was used for food grade glycerine and the work began. I cut off the top so I could keep it as a lid...

    Important welding helmet lens question!!!

    Those lenses with the gold coating are definitely the way to go. The gold filter adds essential filtration of infrared wavelengths of light which is not blocked in the cheap lenses. From my understanding, intense infrared lights effect on your eyes is similar to how you get sunburned on a clear...
