Yeah, we well and truly hijacked the thread.

Typical stoker systems use a thermocouple, fan, food probe, and control unit. It wouldn't be hard to adapt the concept to a WFO door. BBQ Guru is one I'm building into my brick smoker. The trick would be venting the oven exhaust. Stoker manufacturers assume you have a properly sized exhaust vent, and you'd have to do the math to figure your vent size. I've only done the calcs for cylindrical and rectangular smokers.

On a WFO, I might put the fan on the exhaust port given how air flows through the dome.

Hi Azatty,

You might live in AZ, but it sounds as if your roots are from Texas of further south? I remember the smoke house with the hams and shoulders dripping fat, the red pepper-sugar cured hams and us kids would prefer a bologna sandwich on store bought white bread. I've almost forgotten what real ham taste like.

I learned to smoke when I lived in Texas 20 some odd years ago. I'm building a mini-smokehouse by my WFO. Hopefully I'll have bacon by Christmas.

Hi Azatty,

Can you keep me updated on your mini-smokehouse, by PM or I could send you my email address, that something that I'm interested in doing, I have farmers around that raise animals and I'm tired of faux food. Real bacon, that renders fat rather than a chemical residue or ham that has a texture other than tofu.
