You can turn an old refrigerator into a pellet smoker....

Lol. That's exactly what I just said but thanks.👍

 

It wasn't apparent if you meant to turn the fridge into a pellet smoker or some other type of smoker.

I have had a few electric smokers but if I ever change that up I will definitely go to a pellet smoker. I have had my mind set on making one from an old refrigerator but these bigger pit boss models might just be the ticket.

 

 

Apparent-ness!  😄

A fridge style would be nice.  Well and I was just looking online yesterday was at first thinking the Bradley but after thinking about it I already have chips, chunks and pellets at the house now I would need pucks. So after reading what you guys had done earlier in the year making carts and platforms to get the unit higher might as well get one that's ready to go. But I still need to go look and pet each brand a little bit and see what would be best. Dont worry big D,  the FIL just used his masterbuilt for the first time and his ribs turned out really tough..

That was my thoughts on the Bradley too. I suppose they work nice but the pucks don't work in anything else and it can be tough finding them locally if you run out.

Hmmmmmm, I wonder why that would be? I make ribs in my weber grill and have had the temps get out of control and still made better ribs than that MES.

I did the same thing when I was looking for an electric smoker. I found I couldn't buy the propitiatory wood pucks in my town and if they ever change them or quit making them for some reason I would be SOL. Wood pellets and chips however can be found locally and can be used for multiple cooking instruments.

I'm thinking next spring a Rib cook-smoke off somewhere!  Everyone hauls their smoker-cookers there and has it out! Even the Horizontal rabbit pellet fellows can come!  😏

    • I've been posting on here since Feb. 4, 2002 - since the days of the Great Red Lake Crappie Boom.  I met several of the members on here in person back then, but most of them are gone now.   Big Dave has me beat by one day, and Del is a relative newby in that respect, but he's the only real "old-timer" on here....😊    
    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
