I have a very small smoker we bought MANY years ago (15 maybe) but at the time it was strictly my husband's toy. Over the years he lost interest. Over the past couple of years I have become more and more interested in being a bit more self sufficient. Being completely honest it is a bit of a struggle to get my husband on board with my schemes and dreams. LOL I have my illegal chickens on the side yard for eggs, veggies growing in the front yard due to the trees outback, and have announced that NOTHING is getting planted on our property that is not edible in some way. I am chomping at the bit to start making my own sausages and bacon etc...have been for a while but after the pink slime in the beef am now more determined to have a bit more control over who gets to poison my family. My question is....rather than buy a new expensive smoker couldn't I just convert an old fridge into one? My elder son suggested a gas stove putting the chips in the broiler drawer but I am not sure there would be enough height in it to hang meat in the oven section. Any thought out there?? Val.
