    Rich, why are you putting a burner in the smoking box?

    Additional heat/heat control. It will be digitally controlled to maintain a temp regardless of the state of the firebox. I'll be able to do "low and slow" without the smoke if I want and as much as I want and still maintain temp., or have one HECK of a jerky dryer!

    Lookin' good Rich. I'd like to experiment with a propane burner on mine....but then I say out loud "experiment with propane burner" and realize I don't have enough medical insurance.[​IMG]
