I have an old commercial refrigerator that I was planning on turning into a smoker. I have two smokers already and thought that this might be better used as a cureing chamber as I currently don’t have one and want one. The only downside is the refrigeration part doesn’t work. Is there some way to cool it without the existing compressor? It will be stored in the basement so it should be pretty close to the necessary range. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
