Hello, I've been a fan of Jeff's smokingmeat.com website for several years. I'm in the process of building a two-part smoker. The first part is what I would call the "smoke generator." I'm using a Lopi wood pellet stove, something that was designed to produce heat with no smoke. I have cut down the air supply enough where it now bellows out the smoke with no heat. I can attach pictures if needed. The second part is what I would call the "cooking vessel". I have insulated this vessel so I can now smoke meats in very low ambient temperatures like down into the teens. The heat source is an electric heating element and the manual thermostat out of an older oven. The one draw back is that I need 220 volts to power the heating element. My goal is to produce a smoker that I can walk away from and not have to tend to it so often. I'm just wondering if anybody has ever used a wood pellet stove as a smoke generator before? Thanks and I will post some pictures of what I'm building very soon! Glad to be here.
