This thread made me think about my new smoke box.

I switched out the cast iron box in my gosm for a small but much bigger than stock loaf pan. This pan is non-stick. I know non-stick teflon coating is supposed to be safe up to about 400 deg. I am not sure what the flame at the bottom of my smoke would be putting out. I know a lot of people have swapped out their smoke boxes. Anyone concerned about fumes from the teflon non-stick coating? I guess in my case it does not matter much. Most of the coating on the outside bottom is gone or at least very discolored so I guess all or most of my fumes, if there was any, is already gone.
If you have concerns just use uncoated plain jane items. Some use coffee cans, others use cast iron skillets.
I would go with a non stick pan to avoid what they call the "Teflon Flu" Google it and you will find all the info on it......I figure why take the chance. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
