Constructing a Smoke Generator

Postby punkin » Wed Jul 22, 2009 5:30 pm

Found this in another forum while surfing.

I've only read the first couplea pages, but it sounds a damn hit.

For those wanting to add smoke to either their hooch or their grain, i think this is a goer.

They said they had the can of sticks go for twelve and a half hours unattended the first time he tried it.

I'd use about a brew can full in 1/4 that time in my smoker and have to top it up three times.

I first thought you were making a smoke generator to produce a smoke screen, either to buy you time to hide your stuff or to create a chaos so you could run away :D Ah my fantasy, you so silly.

:doh:
Where there's smoke, there's fire. Fire can burn, especially the accident-prone types.

You already walk with a limp, have a tender finger, and have a steel-clad spikey goolie (Lord knows what you jammed THAT in!)
Why not just buy a rocking chair and sit back with a beer, in contemplation instead?

Next you'll be saving up for a motorbike, I suppose?

I built a variation of that, and can vouch for what you're saying Punkin. It's hard to keep it going if you burn it any slower than that.

Since the original post with link is 2009, I don't think the item is there, Swede can you post a picture of yours?

Here.... it's fed off my air compressor set to maybe 1psi. Once it's loaded with chips, you put the lid on, and light it from the bottom. The bottom slanted plate is adjustable (draft) and can be used to regulate airflow along with the venturi feed (air compressor psi)

I got the basic idea here... http://www.wedlinydomowe.com/smokehouse ... -generator

I posted a home made venturi smoke generator in this thread viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2552&hilit=smoke+generator&start=15. I powered it with an aquarium air pump. It worked well, but I've since moved to the A-MAZ-IN smoke generator....it's simpler and doesn't generate the creosote that the other one did.
