He y there all,new guy here. got a question. Just built a electric( for now) smoker out of an old Traulsen refrigerator. i gutted it ,removed all the foam insulation and replaced it with rock wool. will add some pictures later. My question is the electric element, I have a1500 watt element and my smoke chip tray is about 1/2 inch above it. not seeming to get enough heat to get the smoke going. I am using an old cake pan for a chip tray. Any thoughts??
