    Came across  this smoker looks like a southern pride...thought it would be great for a small bbq joint :

    Looks good, but can not really afford it...
    Got to looking at some of the pics and noticed it had an auberins PID controller

    So I get the bright idea to convert a 500 gallon reverse flow into a gas assisted set it and forget it.. Has anyone tried this or know all the parts I may need for the MOD???

    Any help would be appreciated..

    yes but that's BBQ blasphemy around these parts! well, you could always buy 2 of the biggest V burner kits for propane other wise you will need a pretty damn big heating electric element if using electricity.

    Yes, it has been done.
    Some commercial pits have a "log lighter" option that is basically the same thing.
    If you build one yourself, get a gas valve similar to those used on gas furnaces or water heaters that will shut the gas off when no flame is present.

    I know, I know,  Blasphemy you say.. but I have years, of stoking all night, and I cant sit at the restaurant all night, just looking for a cheaper set up to do a great job on what I already have... Thanks for the replys...
