I've seen pictures on the web of someone with a window unit in a smoke house. I don't know if that would work or not. If you had a large fridge or cool bot type set up, you could smoke most the year at night temps and move it to the fridge with humidity control in the day, not year round though. I c...

Partycook, did you go electric or gas? That would be a real score to luck into a ss fridge. Anyone have direct experience with a masonry hot smoker? Fwiw after a few mock runs, I'm Lean ng toward wiring a light switch into my 110 instead of a ranco thermo for short smoking times and watching the tem...

Basically, Its an easy install/removal. It will run primarily on my main smokehouse, but I can pull it out, put it in the barn when not in use, and take it to the deer lease and smoke and bake in my old 55 gallon drum cold smoker. I got about $250 in it, not including the Ronco thermostat, which I a...

Well, I've finished my burner. Maybe someone building will find this useful. Works great and gets HOT! I messed around building pipe burners for a month and ended up buying the lp orifice and burner from sausage maker and I'm well pleased. I'll try to post photos, but no promises I can figure it out...

About got it finished. We had a baby this month, so not much time for hobbies the last couple of weeks... ill post a picture after I successfully fire the burner a couple times.

gas valve question

Hello, I'm brand new here and to forums in general. I tried searching a question I had but to no avail. I'm building a new and improved smokehouse and need to hook up my gas valve to a 24v transformer. Thermostat is a ronco 120v thermo that goes directly to the 24v. So essentially the transformer is...
