    Ok so I just got an old GE Fridge all enamel coated insides I want to use propane but I am having trouble determining a good set up as far as btu's and control options. I am wanting too make this set up look as good as possible. The fridge is 22 cu. ft. of cooking space I was thinking 12,000 btu. but I am not sure. Also I am going to build this so that all the smoke will go to the top first and vent out the lower half of the cooking area. I will post a sketch of what my intentions are with this fridge.


    for everyone's help

    no idea!

    Sounds exciting,.  You may nedd a small fan to move the smoke that far down.  Don't let your smoke go stale.  You will need a draft/draw to your exhaust.  If the smoke goes up then down, that can stall the exhaust and cause nasty build up.

    Keep posting, I'm interested.

    I use this in my smokehouse; it's great as you can fire up one, two, or all three burners plus by adding a needle valve you can get infinite control, see my post below!

    Don't know if you've finished your smoker or not but I went HERE  for my burner.  I also bought a chimney from him too.  I didn't have my welder at the time, so it was easier.  Don't remember his name but he was good to deal with.
