Used ta be Cool-More Progress

This project has been gettin put off to long. So today I got back to work on it.

Got the wheels mounted, the control box mounted an the heatin element in.

The heatin element. It's fer a dryer an should provide plenty a heat.

This is gonna be used primarily fer sausage, bacon an hams. Should really help make a quality sausage.

Next, I'm gonna get it wired up. Got a start on the smoke generator already. Hope ta get it finished up next weekend!

Good smokes

Way too cool. Those old porcelain fridges as kind of tough to find. That one looks perfect.

You are going to use a 3-wire power cord with the body of the box grounded, right? (I'd probably build in a GFCI too, but maybe I'm a little paranoid.)

Great job Hillbilly. I just love them electrical cooking contraptions. If you was to stick a Sams pan fulla water in there you could prob knock out briskets etc. Just let the drippings fall in the pan.
