Need advice on a smoker build

Discussion in 'Reverse Flow' started by cohoho, Mar 11, 2014.

  1. I got this Foster blast chiller it is stainless steel inside and out I was worried about the insolation inside so I phoned the company they told me the insolation is ridged board polyurothain and if no open flame was touching it I should be good for temps. To 300 to 350 F. There is no insolation showing on the inside it is all sandwiched between the stainless do I need to worry about it leaching or should I be able to go ahead with this build? Any help would be great thanks.

    I don't know about the insulation.... but man.... what a great score ....
  3. It is awesome but if I have to rip it apart and take out all the insolation it will not be worth it for me so I sure hope I can use it like it is it will make one hell of a smoker!!
  4. Maybe a cold smoker ?, I really don't think that type insulation will hold up in a RF or SF type smoker. You will have some hot spots, especially where the FB connects to the CC, You sure don't want that stuff melting.        On insulated we use mineral wool.
