Mini ME smoker for Bubba Keg

This is what happens when you down one of these, and you are bored.



I figure a couple of charcoals and a hunk of wood closed up with header tape and a little fiddling with the top vent and I'll have cold/warm smoke for cheese or salt.

The charcoal pan is an empty pellet tin sitting on top of a couple of welding rods to keep it off the bottom. I haven't tried it yet. I have to let the 700F silicone dry. The good part is I got to drink the beer first!



I'll leave a small gap in the bottom for air. Hic

Re: Mini ME smoker for Bubba Keg

It's working just fine. Put some salt on for the test. So far I'm at one full hour and it looks like I won't have to add a chunk of wood for maybe two more.

Wow that should work nearly as good as a card board box a one eyed hotplate and a pie pan. Smart thinning there Senor. You got way too much free time on your hands. Come up to Foat Wuth and I will put you to work on some weighty issues

I had to think 'outside the box' BW. The wife used up all of them for Christmas presents.............

I like it when a plan comes together.
