    Tried making a smoke generator out of 2" pipe and fittings, didn't work real good. Went through my dumpster diving stuff and came up with this.













    This is about 2 1/2 hours later and still going.
    It's an unused chemical pot feeder. Didn't have to do anything but screw in some nipples and throw in the wood chips.
    I think it going to be a winner.[​IMG]

    Not to be contrary but isn't this about the complete opposite of the tbs that we all want [​IMG] I have heard about smoke generators but have never seen or used one so I guess I am a little in the dark on these [​IMG]

    A smoke generator is a bit different beast, it's a cool smoke, condensates inside the generator so lots less chance a cresosote. There generally used ta cold smoke somthin, say cheese er sausage where ya wanna keep the temps down.

    Ya can also regulate that air supply an help control the smoke to. That gonna make a swell smoke generator.

    The smoke from one won't never be as light an blue in color as in a smoker cause this is more of a smolderin smoke, no fire really involved. It will be a bit whiter then yer used ta. However, it does a great job on sausage, cheese an ham!

    It was definitely lighter smoke.

    I did have a dreaded white cloud for about 10 minutes, but manage to get the heat up and get rid of it.

    Here some pics on some cheese, It was such a cool smoke it didn't hardly heat the cheese. Outside temp was about 42°
    Usually I do cheese on my ECB, this is an experiment on smoke box size.
