    I've searched without success.  Is there a formula that would help you compute the element wattage needed for a smokehouse of a given cubic feet?  Or conversely, given an element size how big a smokehouse could you build?

    To be complete you'd probably need to factor in such things as the outside temp, smokehouse R-factor, and max desired temp.

    I'm beginning my journey toward building my hot/cold smokehouse.  Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi.I have a excell spreadsheet that computes oven temp/oven temp time via wattage.  Message me your email address and I'll forward it to you.
