Hey since I just got introduced to this group I thought I would put this out there. Stumbled across an old GE fridge that someone was getting rid of, paid them $100 for it. Then found an even cooler Frigidaire so I'm getting rid of the GE. Anyone want it? Asking what i have in it, $100. I'm...
Again, the element that I plan to replace the 3000w element with is a 900W, 110V element.
I think the 900W element will heat the smoker, If it won't I bought 2 of them and I'm confident that 1800W will heat it. But then I'll have trouble with too many amps on a 15A circuit.
I forgot to mention the 900w element is a 120v element & it was only $6.34. Way cheaper than the Brinkman element.
My figures were all based on the wattage of the element divided by the voltage. Is this not the way to figure amps?
Thanks for the input!
I'm tired of not being able to take my smoker places because they do not have 220V available. Like any competition. So I want to convert it to run on 110V.
Here's my setup today: Old GE fridge, running an old GE oven broiler element (220V) controlled by the oven's electronic control board. I...
Just home cured 2 pork butts into ham and smoked them last weekend. I used Pop's brine and for large pieces of meat I lean on the heavy side for the salt. These turned out great. Probably having leftovers for dinner tonight!

Hey Welcome to the addiction, we only feed it, we don't help you off of it.
Where at in Iowa?? I'm in the Cedar Rapids area myself.
Been doing this for a few years now and I've really gotten into curing and smoking Hams and Bacon. Brisket will always be my favorite though.
