ok, pipedream time
I've got access to a few cast iron woodstoves. a couple skinny tall ones with doors at the bottom and pipe holes at the top, a round one (50gal drum sized), and a potbelly style that's all rusted to hell. I would not say that any of these are safe for home use due to rust, leak potential etc.
They're free for me, and I'd love to convert one to smoke jerky, salmon, turkey, etc... but I don't know the best way, or even the best one, to start the project.
I understand that it's necessary for a spot for hot smoke and a spot for cold smoke, so i'd like to incorporate that ability into the stove.
I have access to a grinder, welder, torch and other metalworking tools (thanks dad
) so i could get fairly creative.
Obviously i'd have to wirewheel the whole thing, high-heat rustoleum the outside, season the inside a bit.
let's hear it.
