    Make sure it's a Frost Free model... You need to keep a constant humidity in the chamber so the meat slowly dries.  If it's not Frost Free you'll have to much humidity and will likely get bad mold on the outside of the meat.

    I got a new controller for the heat lamps when the application calls for timed heat. Going to mount outside and run the probe inside. The lamps will piggyback of the controller plug.

    Cool deal there. I have a question though couldn't you just bypass the defrost if it was a frost free fridge.

    I am using a frost free fridge and it works just fine. The fridge doesn't cycle all that often and I am willing to bet Joe is going to add a humidity source to the fridge like a fogger or humidifier.
