    I've introduced myself, and now I'm ready to ask some questions -

    1. - What kind of hurdles can I expect when converting this ice box to a smoker, i.e. unsafe original materials, proper heating methods, ventilation???

    2. - Who are the good component suppliers?  I don't want to spend a fortune, and I don't need the "best".

    Specifically, I want to go with electric heat source(s) at 110V and I don't really need to start with the cold smoking until I become proficient at hot smoking.

    Here's a couple pics of the ice box -



    It's a true "ice box", no electrical at all.  I have the original top, and will only need to close off the top back portion, most likely with some sheet metal.

    Let the suggestions, comments and encouragement begin!
     
  2. Nice looking unit. Looking over the post by others with fridge units will give you a lot of insight. Good luck on your build.
