    Hey your on your way. Looking good so far. I too am building a smoker out of an old 1940's fridge. Looks like your going propane to heat. What or where did that burner come from and do you know the BTU's it puts out? If you have any ideas of what to do or not to do, or any problems you ran into while building, let me know. Good job.

    Good looking build. Looks like a diffuser plate above the burner. Do you have anything else to channel drippings away from the fire?

    I have a drip pan that i made that sits in with a removeable pan works as a smoke diffuser also plus i have a drip pan below the base of the stack that hangs to catch any drip from it just didnt take pics of them yet
