Well everyone, after lurking on here for a while and learning a lot about how to build one of these things, I finely have a game plan and have started on the build! As was requested by many, photos will be a plenty throughout the process. here is the first photo: the idea... Turning this: into this: Smoke chamber under a old gas oven turned into a electric smoker! Here is what i did so far... started on the "body work" Got a nice project box! painting it black! And i call this picture... weight reduction... ripping out all the gas components and excess crap i dont need! Well thats it for my first couple days... i got a Brinkman 1500w heater on the way. once this weather warms up i can start the body work on the unit itself!
