old oven

  1. anyone ever take an old oven outside, put the chips in a pan on the element and turn the oven on to 200F? Theres an element on the range part of the unit that almost always has a vent hole in it. Would this work? Old ovens seem pretty available.
  2. Hello John.  I haven't tried it but I have seen videos on youtube and such.  Seems to work.  Good Luck.  Keep Smokin!

    Should work. A couple things would make sure were TCO before trying it.

    Covering the element to avoid grease fire.

    Smoke generation. I would use something like the AMNPS for that.

    Otherwise it is just like using the MES or another electric style smoker, but you can cook your sauces on the top burners......
