Well I was able to get the whole thing gutted. Ended up having to remove all insulation. The fridge was in bad shape when I got it and stuff had leaked while in storage so rust and "juices" soaked into all the foam an created rust along the bottom. I'll get a picture loaded when I can. So in the mean time I have built my smoke generator. I works great tried it last night. 1 cup of chips smoked for an hour or so.... Here are a couple of pictures. Took video with my phone of it smoking but I cant get it to convert to be able to watch.
sweet, what is that made out of?? i got ceramic fiber insulation online from....www.ceramicfiberonline.com.....stuff is rated at 1200 degrees. i think i got 50sqft for like $80 plus shipping. this is the stuff they use in kilns.
Its made from Aluminum conduit. A supplier had a few feet laying around and sent it to me. It has 1/2" exp. metal. caps are cast aluminum. 3/4" black iron nipple and opposite the nipple the airline will enter. Its tapped at 1/4" IP.
I used a exhaust pipe expander to bell the ends a bit for the caps. Now I just need to get a set screw tapped for the bottom cap.
