    Hi all new to the site I am building a smoker and need some help so joined up. I live in Chilliwack BC. I have been making sausage for years and I am actually a butcher by Trade.

    The inside dimension is 28" X 66"
     
  4. I bought my 1800watt from cabelas 45 bucks heats my fridge smoker to 250f plus. How do you plan to control the temp?

  7. I have an aubern pid and unless you plan on using all its functions I would buy something easier to use. My buddy bought one in couquitlam for 75 bucks new. I wish I had of gone that route.

    Good to know AI really only need it to cut the heat when needed to keep on temp. What did your buddy buy.

    I managed to find some time to work on the smoker today it is starting to look a lot like a coffin. Tomorrow I will put in the hole for the smoke pipes and hopefully put the front and door on. It should start to look a like a smoker soon.

  13. Not sure I can enquire all he does is set the temp and that's it! My aubern you need a degree in computer programming to operate!

    I definatly do not want to be that advanced that I need a computer to operate. Need simple unit to shut heat source off and on as needed to keep temp
