I fired her up today to see what kind of temps I could hold. The lowest temp I could hold was 155º, I could hold ant temp I wanted up to 275º & could go a lot hire but I stopped there. I put wood in the pan to get smoke & put a large metal bowl of water inside just to have something in ther. Anyway, here are some pics.

Sweet looking.  What's the wavy material in the lower half?  I plan on using 1/4" cement board on the bottom section of my build, but I'm always open to other suggestions.

The wavy material is powder coated corrugated steel. The whole thing is insulated except the bottom & I still need to figure out a better latch for the door & a door gasket.

I am in the process of building a electric smoker out of wood and and old oven for parts.  I used the door seal from the oven for my door seal.  I used alot of the insulation from the oven to insulate the smoker, I used alot of the sheet metal (with enamal coating) for heat shielding...  I even used the thermostatic control and the heating element from the oven to heat the smoker. 

my freind bet me I couldn't build it for under $100.....   he lost!!

if you want to do lower temps then take an eletric hot plate and hook it up to a line voltage thermostat for electric baseboard heating.  should be able to maintain temps in the 65-95 range pretty easy.  you just need to create an different way to generate smoke from your heat....   amazing smoker to the rescue!!
