Hello everyone, I want to thank you all in advance for any advice and ideas you give me. I am new to the forum, and have spent the last 3 weeks using this awesome site for research as to how I want to do my build. The fridge I am using has some sentimental value, It was purchased by my great grandparents in what we are guessing was the early 70's, and has been passed down the line up until my uncle just recently decided he no longer wanted it. I immediately jumped at the opportunity, as I thought it would make the perfect smoker. Unfortunately, it was plastic on the inside, so I gutted it and went to a local fab shop and had them build me a smoke box to slide in the fridge. I left a 2 inch gap around smoke box in which I will insulate it with Roxul. I will heat it with a brinkman 1500 watt element. I will control it with the Auber Instruments 1800 watt PID. I also bought an AMNPS for my smoke generator. I have a smoke stack that I will put in the top center of the fridge, and will put a ball valve on the side for air flow. I have everything I need to put it together except the insulation. It is supposed to be here Friday, so hopefully I will make some headway over the weekend. I will update with photos as I make progress, I will have plenty of questions as I progress. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
