    Hi all, Just wondering if an electric smoker would be worth making into an incubator. My husband is about to throw it away because it doesn't come up to smoking temperature. It has shelves, vents at the bottom, still turns on, but I'll have to figure out how to regulate temperature. Bonus is, if I do succeed in hatching, they'll smell like pulled pork.:D

    I haven't tried it yet because the cost of an incukit was as much as the incubator I got, the Incuview, which works great!
