View Full Version : Regular smoke/long smokes

02-13-2008, 07:02 PM
I choose two different ways to handle reg/long smokes. For regular smokes i use the original cast iron box with an added handle. For longer smokes i use a coffee can with a handle. The small holes are for air circulation within the can, and the large holes at the top are for exhaust, I have to shim the water pan for clearance. Not much of a new and improved idea, but it works for me.

Very interesting... Your pic doesn't show many hours on the setup. Does it flare up? How often do you have to put more wood in it? Do you use chips or chunks? Do you soak the wood?

You probably knew that I would be asking a lot of silly questions...you've seen my setup.

Steve, I haven't used the coffee can yet, but when I do, I'll post the results. I don't usually soak the wood, and at the present time I'm only using chips mixed in with just a very few chunks of charcoal. Sorry I don't have more to tell. Thanks for the inspirations on the GOSM. I'll be posting the other mods real soon.

Ok, so what is the purpose of the charcoal mixed in with the wood chunks?
