If the one on the left works and it looks to be complete then you have money sitting there. Lots of peeps are looking for that antique kitchen with working appliances.


If it can't be smoked .... try frying it. It that don't work, it's probably best just left alone

BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.

I don't know anything about this but wondering, can a person use a working fridge with a cold smoke generator to do the "cold smoking" (cheese and such)? Just allow it to vent out the top, and put the smoke in at the bottom? Down here in Florida it may be the best option a person may get for cold smoking, just thinking.

I don't see a problem with that RC
that would prolly be Ideal since you don't want heat only smoke. I would think you would want to set the temp as high as you can to let the meat warm up a bit to take on smoke. you would have large temp swings on the fridge temp but I don't think that would be a problem. Great Idea! :beer:
