Grease Fire in Fridge build...

Discussion in 'Fridge/Freezer Builds' started by bbqonice, Apr 21, 2013.

  1. My Fridge built is done...doing some chicken and couple baby back ribs....mine I use lump from bottom.  walked away for a bit and daughter said why are there flames coming out of the smoker.

    Fridge is out of square....the stainless tin I lined the door and corners is now like paper.  Not sure if I will rebuild or buy a ??.

    good thing...the Roxul insulation hi temp stuff is like the day I installed did not burn.  The hi temp silicone I had on the back vent...burned.

    Wow, this has me contemplating on how I may need to contain my grease so I don't end up in the same situation.  An eye opener, indeed.

    Ouch! Sorry that happened. I say try, try again. You can't live without bbq for long.
  6. well I stripped the paper tin  Looks like I can still salvage it...the Roxul insulation never even burnt.  Good stuff.

    I will rebuild.

    I am curious as to what thickness of stainless you used on your smoker.  I would suggest you go thicker than what you used there.  I have never seen any kind of metal burn like that, especially stainless.  That must have been one hell of a fire.
  8. Wow,sorry for your bad luck.  I would of thought there wouldn't be enough oxygen for the fire to burn.Thanks for the heads up!!!!
