I have the smoking habit bad. *( this is what the wife says, told me not everything has to be smoked ) So I want to build a smoker. I have this coke machine it will give me a smoker box 4 ft high by 3 ft wide by 2 1/2 ft *deep. Has anyone done a conversion of this type. I have a heavyduty firebox to mount on the side. Plus a vent stack for the top. My questions are this, it has aluminum inside then foam insulation then another wall of aluminum. This is then covered with the steel outside case. ( please see pictures ) Would this make a good box. *What kind of sealer do I use to close off holes. Since this is food I want to be safe. *(the holes happened when someone broke into machine) stole cokes and money. The machine needs to much in boards to work again. *Compressor and all still works so I will strip them out to build a cool looking and functinal smoker. * Also it has a rubber seal all the way around , do i remove it and install something else ? Any insite *you can offer? Thank you ahead of time. Glad I found you all* http://s944.photobucket.com/albums/a...1258909506.jpg.
