I have a 5 cubic foot chest freezer that quit working after six years. The cabinet is in perfect condition. I remember seeing an old refrigerator converted to annealer, which gets pretty hot, and wondered about converting this broken chest freezer. Are there any thoughts about this, or experienced smokers who could share some advise?  Thanks - D is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
