    Might have come across an old upright freezer and am tempted to turn it into a smoker. Depending on what it looks like inside shapewise, I'm thinking on using a fish frier propane burner. Beyond that, I've never built a smoker or run one. What tips or tricks can you give me design or use wise.

    sorry got nothing other than the plastic prolly melt unless it was used strictly for cold smoking.

    the best cooker/smoker on a budget is build an ugly drum.
