Name is Eric.....I just found this forum a couple days ago and am busily filling my head with the wealth of information on here. I don't have a smoker just yet, but with all the various and creative ideas, I'm leaning toward building my own. I just happen to be in posession of a very old fridge (enamel on steel inside, even ). I think if I mess around enough, I might just be able to make a hybrid out of it....LP for hot smoking.....hot plate with thermostat for cooler smokes. Should be interesting.....I'll keep y'all posted!!
