Hello all! I'm new to SMF (really smoking im general) and am just starting my first build and i could use a bit of help from you fella's that are well versed in these builds. I recently acquired an irreparable carter-haufmann SS commercial fridge. It has a stainless interior, fiberglass insulation in the walls, and the interior is roughly 5' x 2'. My plan is to make a smoker/cooker out of this fridge with an electric heating element and a digital thermostat. I don't know if I would need a cold smoker or exactly what type of smoke generator because I'm not very familiar with smoking at all. The main thing I will be smoking in this box is deer sausage (tired of paying to get deer processed) . I could really use some help on what type of heating element, thermostat, and smoke generator to use. I'm not completely convinced that I need to use electric heat, I just figure that it is the easiest to control. If y'all have any suggestions, please feel free! As soon as I figure out how to post some pictures from my IPhone I will do so!
