Thanks for the comments, getting the plastic off the old shelf racks is a bit tedious, after removing the plastic I paint them with pickling gel (nitric acid) then hose off and scrub with gumption (great cleaning paste ) dry and spray with cooking oil. They come up like new...almost. I will be keeping the racks clean after each cook but do you need to clean the smoker cabinet as well?

I'm no smoker expert, but once had a electric Bradley smoker and I remember instructions saying cleaning inside of the cabinet was not required, the smoke build up internally acts as a kind of seasoning I guess. So it shouldn't be nessecary to clean the inside of the cabinet.

Hi everyone, some pics to finish this build thread. I am very happy with the way this smoker works, I am not a fan of heavily smoked food and the Smoke Daddy Magnum seems very versatile, it can put out the heavy smoke if you want but it also does a nice wispy smoke as in the pic below. Tbs do you think? It will do this for about 5 hrs per charge of pecan chips and only raises the cabinet temp by a few deg. Heat wise It hits 250f pretty quick then seems to be slower getting hotter, I did chicken at 300f and it held the temp steady no probs.

hiya, just another update. Been doing some fine tuning and was wondering about smoke distribution inside the smoker, was a bit worried it might be a bit uneven , so I opened the doors and taped clear plastic over the opening and fired up the smoke daddy, as I suspected smoke was a lot heavier on one side. Made up a diffuser from some angle and with some adjusting I think its working a lot better, also did the same for the air.

Image

much more even smoke

Image

Was also not happy with a hole in the top cnr where an old light switch was so after a few beers and a rummage through the shed I got it fixed. Everyone asks what its for and I tell them its a bling tap. Some smile and others ask how it works :)
