    The first chef that has skills outside of the kitchen in history. Most chefs wouldn’t know a screwdriver from a hammer let alone own a hole saw kit. Hats off to you chef.

    I'm confused. Why is there a humidifier in the fridge and not a dehumidifier? Like isn't curing about keeping the humidity low instead of high? Like I just don't get this.

    This is exactly what I've been looking for. But let me ask you a question; can I also use this as a cold smoke chamber by adding a small smoke generator on the outside, like a Smokai?

    CAUTION: The cooling coils in most/but not all modern home refrigerators/freezers are in the side. If you drill through them your refrigerator is ruined plus it will spray the "Freon" out on you.

    You can check where they are though by feeling around the sides and back with the unit running, wherever it is warm is where the coils are. If you cannot tell then turn the refrigerator off for a while and open the door to let it warm up a bit. Then turn it back on and in roughly 10 to 30 minutes you should be able feel some warmth on the backs or sides. wherever it is warm is where the coils are. Note: there are still some out there that have the coils under the refrigerator where you can see them and some that have them visible on the back or on top. I have not seen these in a good while except the top one in commercial equipment.
    The refrigerator will act as a dehumidifier itself for the most part, not sure if it is enough early own.
    I have used this setup to convert an old fridge into an incubator and a working one into a chilling/aging unit until I can finish breaking down a carcass.
