I have been wanting to build a bigger smoker to handle a large amount of meat. I have a very nice heavy duty offset now. Been using it for a lot of years now. It is a Brinkmann Pro series with made from 1/4 steel. Once a year I find it filled to the max with no room for more. Here a few weeks back I found myself at a local auction. I was there for some wooden topped tables. After looking through all the stuff they had I caught eye on this hot cabinet. It was all aluminum inside and out and bigger then most refrigerators. So I stayed to give it a bid. Won the bid for 17.50$. Damn near fell over. So I am currently in the throes of turning it into a pellet smoker using the pellet pro hopper. Here is my progress so far. Now there still more to go. Here is the run down on the photos. Fist was the box when I got it home. Then we put in a ceiling vent to open up the draft. Installed the hopper on left side. Put the heat probe on the back in center level of the cooking area. Modified some racks to hold my drip pan. It is scrap stainless picked up for 16$ at the recycle center. It was a semi quarter fender. Drove over it a few times to flatten it down. Then worked it on my anvil. Top I am making rods to do hanging meat. I have picked up stainless shower curtain hangers, making them into meat hooks. Still have to get drip tray and the side vent before I start my testing.
