Rookie needs help


Joined Jan 15, 2014
I have access to a commercial side by side fridge. It has been used by the owner as a wood smoker but I want to turn it into an electric smoker. I have never done this before and am looking for some guidance. where do I get a burner, how do I get a burner run by a thermostat, etc...

Any help would be very appreciated. I am wanting to get everything figured out so I can start working on it within a month or two so it is ready for spring.
