Smoke oven test!!
It worked very well!

The heat is a problem with smaller smokers.
With this oven, I can leave the chiles to smoke over the night
without burning or cooking them too much.

Temperatures in degree celsius,
above is the temperature outdoors and
below is the temperature
in the smoking oven, where the chiles are.

I will also test drying with this oven after finishing this project completely.
More about that later.

Some chiles ready to be smoked!
