Hi SMF! I am a not-very experienced diy smoker. I started with a hot plate and a cardboard box, but that's..you know...a hot plate and a cardboard box. So I moved the guts of it into a rolling tool chest I wasn't using. I sprayed the interior with grill paint and lined the interior with foil covered cardboard for insulation. I put a port on the back for adding wood/water, and a rotisserie. Now I'm quite obsessed with the idea of converting from hotplate to LPG, and I think I have everything I need. I have a couple of questions related to that idea, but IDK if I should post them in this thread or make a new thread elsewhere ? Anyways, thanks for the opportunity to share.
