The New Expanding Tube Smoker will replace the 18" Tube Smoker

Expands from 12"-18"
Smokes from 4-6 hours

Testers are claiming up to 7 hours of good smoke when the Tube is fully extended

 

Gotta Love New Toys!

I ordered one yesterday from Amazen Products website..

post #64 of 71

Ordered one and it showed up today! Tested it out by smoking a 1lb block of cheddar. Started it at 6 PM (it's 9:53 here now) and it's still going. I used a red solo cup to fill it up, which filled the smoke tube about 1/3 of the way. I think with it not being extended at all it'll burn 7+ hours for me. 

 

I'm getting ready to do the mailbox mod, so the burn time might change. I just wanted to get it going and didn't want to wait for my mod to be finished (or started for that matter).

 

Edit: Well, the smoked cheese has that stale smoke flavor. I think I needed to give the smoker a bit of heat to get the air-flow going. I'm going to let the cheese sit overnight and see what happens.

 

Edit 2: After a little over a week of letting the cheese rest, it is starting to taste fantastic! I think by week 2 it'll be really good. Mailbox mod is done, and I'm doing another set of cheese on Saturday, this time a few 5lb blocks (cut to small butter-stick size chunks).

His pellets are great, but I also use Lumberjack pellets that I use in my pellet grill with absolutely no problems.

Points!! 
What is a pellet tray of you don't mind me asking. And would you prefer it over the tube. I have a pit boss pellet smoker and am looking for a little more smoke.
Thank you

My cousin uses the tube smoker in his pellet smoker. I use the tube smokers in my gas smoker and for all my cold smoking.

I use the pellet tray as shown in the link...

A lot of the members are using the new expandable tube and I hear nothing to good results with it and I'm sure some day I'll be buying one for our use.     I like the tray after reading on here how some of the members made what they call a mailbox smoker to attach to their smokers.   I have a Masterbuilt 30 so the tray and a mailbox attachment works good for me.  With the mailbox, I also do some cold smoking in several 5 gallon (food grade) pails stacked inside each other - I made an attachment to a 55 gallon barrel so with a little charcoal in a pan I can smoke a full run or 15 to 20 pounds of sausages at one time with the mailbox.   I can connect this mailbox to my grill and smoke in that so for my use, the tray seems to do the job but I'm sure the expandable tube that Todd has would do the same.    I'm not sure of your smoker and how they are used so someone else will pop in to help you I'm sure.  

 

I found that I can control the amount of my smoke by how far I fill each section in the tray.  If I only want a small amount of smoke, I'll fill the section half way with Todd's pellets and then make sure I fill the ends so the next section can catch on fire.   I would think the the expandable tube would work the same way.  

 

 

For kicks I tried to smoke some hard boiled eggs in a pail when it was below zero.   I purchased several food grade pails and can cold smoke in pails by stacking the half pails on top of one another..  

 

This is my Pail Smoker...  

 

For cold smoking, my tray goes inside my mail box and it attached to the pail or other device.    

 

 

This was the one (top section) of the pails.  

 

 

 

I'm sure others will chime in and be of more help who know your smoker.

I'm sure either one would work for you.   You could call Todd and ask him which one would be best..   He'll be more than willing to help you.
