Its actuality quite attractive, here is the design I based it on http://www.afoodjourneytogo.com/2010/08/29/let%E2%80%99s-make-a-smoker-%E2%80%A6-out-of-a-flower-pot/
If I can figure out how to post a Photo I will. Baby Girl has gone down for her nap so I might get my camera out.
Mine looks a bit classier
I got lucky and B&Q had a brassier stand on sale for £1 as the actual brassier had broken so I am not using bricks. Its still a terracotta pot and lid though.
I am also using a gas camping burner instead of electric. I am not comfortable pulling apart an electric hob to make it fit.
Here is what I am using http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/coleman-f1-lite-stove-p118554
the way it comes apart means the air feed hole is below the actual pot as it all fits nicely through the drainage hole because the burner section unscrews.
It was meant to get here yesterday. The burner is the last bit of the puzzle before I can start smoking.
It arrived as I was typing this eeeee!!!!
I've got wood from B&Q they have Jack Denials wood
(yes the whiskey) so I will use that the first time. I haven't found a 'brick and mortar' that stocks wood chips for BBQ/Smocking specifically beyond the JD wood at B&Q.
I have seen the odd sack of split wood for fire places but without knowing the species I don't want to try it. I haven't seen any warnings but I don't want to inadvertently poison anyone.
As long as it all works well, I will order wood on line and get it delivered once th JD wood is used.
I told DH people are suggesting pork butt and with how is eyes light up I think that it is diffidently going to be out first Smoke.
ohh and Lynnv with the way I did it there was no tools required it was just get parts and put them together. You could be sneaky and buy the parts and not tell him it's a smoker untill you present him with yummy smokyness and who could complain about that?
"what this pot? I want some flowers."
"This burner is for camping I like camping."
"This rack? its' just a cooling rack. I need it for colling stuff."
"ohh look what I made and with stuff we already had! aren't I clever
