    You don’t need alot of heat but it’s handy and safer to have some
    120c will cook chicken over a few hours 70c is sweet for fish
    I like the idea of putting an electric element in mine and having a play around with that.

    I guess that would mean I'd need to add a temperature gauge. Anyone know where to get one??

    I noticed that the Spot (?) store in Nelson (opposite the red shed) had a few different types in stock yesterday

    I have a dairy thermometer that fits in a hole in the top of the cabinet. Seldom use it though as it is glass and dont want it to break- although it is an alchohol one , and not mercury... Tend to use my digital thermometer instead

    Not the best photos, but I made this out of a 100 gal propane tank that was past it's useful life to the gas company. 1200w electric burner connected to a temperature controller provides the heat. Smoke comes from pellets in an amaz'n stainless steel mesh pellet smoker.

    My last smoker was too small, so I made sure I wouldn't have the same problem with this one. I believe each grate is around 22" in diameter. I think they were made for a large Weber kettle.

    Mine is cheapie Brinkman vertical, I have added 250mm to the top of it to allow for sausages and salami to hang

    When the temp gets a bit hit and miss I turn on the heater element i robbed out of a cheap bunnings electric barby

    I covered it with ply to help with keeping the heat in. Usually use heat beads or for cold smoking my own rendition of an Amazin smoker .... the older version that just uses the dust from a drop saw and burns up and down defined lanes on a stainless mesh
