First smoke in my newly built upright freezer conversion: Baby Backs and beans

  1. This was my first smoke in my freezer conversion.  Was very happy how it turned out, ribs and beans were good, smoker was very consistent.  Only thing I need to do is switch over to chunks instead of chips so I can get more smoke on the meat.

    Looks great I do the fridge build also, I use the same element as you but I use the AMPTS  for smoke works great. Are you running a PID for controlling your heat?? What temp can you get it to?? Looks good.
     
  3. I am using this stepless speed control for temp control at the moment.



    I plan to use a PID eventually but didnt want to spend the money for one until I knew how the smoker would perform. 

    I was able to get it up to 290 degrees when I seasoned it.  It was 20-30 degrees outside the day I seasoned it, so I am sure I could reach 300 degrees in nicer weather.  I have no need to go over 275 degrees though.

    Looks great my PID only goes 220 wich is fine for most but sometimes I would like to go higher.
