Is it possible to convert a gas based smokehouse into a steam based smokehouse? If so what steps do I need to take?

Hello,

The answer is: it depends. If your smokehouse has a microprocessor that can accommodate humidity controls and you can add humidity introduction (water misters) onto the existing smokehouse, then you could probably do this, but I don't think it would be easy. You'll need to shut the dampers when steaming, so will need damper control tied into the mircoprocessor as well. You'd need to work with someone who knows a lot of about smokehouses - this is not something that I can explain to you simply though this forum on the internet.

Good Luck,
