I am new to the board and I am looking for ideas and suggestions on making a smoker. I have heard of people using old steel lined refrigerators for smokers. What are the ins and outs of doing this? Do you have to worry about the insulation melting or burning? Would it be best to have a fire box and only burn wood? Idealy I would want gas or electric for a heat source. Also, has any one ever tried building a smoker from an old ice cooler like what is found in front of a gas station? I know its a lot of questions, but I would rather ask than make a mistake.

Thanks!

I would go with the old tried and true propane tanks or other barrel type design. Very Happy The old fridge thing will work, and I have seen smokers made out of just about anything. In the long run, you will not be happy with a rusty old fridge in your yard! Crying or Very sad
