Hello Folks! I recently got this dbl oven from my work. I have all the electrical components stripped out of it. The first photo is of the front of the oven. I wish I would have taken a photo of the back when i had the panel off. So that I didnt get a photo of the back I did my best a drawing out what the back looks like. It has two squares cut out where it had fans to circular to circulate the heat in the oven. It is 2 separate ovens they each had there own heating elements. If you had this how would you build it? I was thinking of putting a fire box on the back of it however would one fire box distribute enough heat equally? Im thinking that it wouldnt. Thoughts? Input? Ideas? Insults? Yeah rights all welcome LOL. Thanks, JT

I have been reading many different threads. Thinking maybe electric or propane may be the way to go?? What do you think?

Would like to make one smoker. The oven is at my work however they are about the same size as a regular household oven. Elements and all electrical components have been stripped out.

I will go for a electrical smoker  it is easy to control and you can use any type of wood pellets or sawdust .

however it won't give you hi temperature .

but we got here great guys they will give you more advice .

just have fun with the build.

I would use electric like Ahron mentioned... an AMNPS for smoke.... probably a 1200 - 1500 watt element on a PID controller...

I was leaning more to electric. I do not have access to 220v just 110v. So I would have to put in a new element in each oven, each of them being 1200-1500 watts. Would I need one or two PID controllers? Thanks again for all the input.
