love smoked foods since a buddy smoked a turkey for my wedding 28 yrs ago but never got further than bbq whole pig on wood. Another friend has been promising to treat me to a smoked chicken for 10 years (ain't happened ) so he had a metal electrical panel box he had been planning to build a smoker out of ( it wasn't going to happen ) so he told me to take the box and build a smoker and keep it at my house. ( its happening ) I've got some build pics and it is coming along quite well. Vertical and at a good height, gas, glass in the door, used a panel from a set of glass doors for a fireplace and the hinge so it has a door in a door for feeding chips with/out opening the main door to let out the heat and to q-view. Thinking about insulation, I'm a chimney sweep and have access to 1/4 and 1/2 in ceramic wool blankets that I use when lining a chimney good to 2200 deg. Don't think I'm going to use it as an incinerator though ! It has five racks 5in apart each rack is 18.5 wide X 16" deep. Need to work on the venting of the box though. Hey enough said Ill post some pics and I'm looking forward to getting to know you and pick your brains where is the best place to post pics.
