    As some of you know, my smoker was recently stolen. Was really bummed out. Finally got done being mad about it.

    Brought home a nice old enamel lined fridge I found and the price was right, free! The nice thing about this one is the freezer box is a seperate piece inside the box so I can remove it and have a nice clean interior plus the enamel is a great boost.

    Started pulling out the old refrigeration parts and cleaning it up.

    Wen't to the home store and bought the chimney items today and dug around in my junk box and came up with a thermostat and a heating element (hope it works).

    This one will be a bit smaller then my last one, but I'm keeping this one in the garage. Will be on nice large rubber tired casters so I can move it around. Ain't taken no chances with this one![​IMG]

    So, over the next few weekends, I hope to be building my new smoker. Will post some pictures as things progess.
