I wanted something different as a title. I am new to smoking foods. My grandfather from Oregon use to smoke salmon when I was a kid. Anyway, I just got an upright freezer from the kid down the street. I googled freezer smokers and the top site led me here. I'll take pictures from begining to end. Along with the freezer, my parents have a wood burning fire stove fireplace insert. I want to use that without cutting it or modifying it if possible. I do live in Modesto Calif, while i'm helping take care of my mother. Any advice will be welcomed. Thanks for the great site!
