That pan has wood chunks. It sits on the hot plate generating smoke. The meat rests on the grill grate that sits inside the pot. COver with a lid, and add the replacement gas grill thermometer in the hole.

Cheap, efficient, awesome.

Hi Steve,

Always glad to see another Good Eats Fan. I think even AB would be impressed with your smoker. I believe I’ll copy your design rather than his.

Good Eats is definately on my Tivo, and I have made several of AB's cooking rigs (Jerky/Herb/Fruit dehydrator, Turkey Fryer Derrick, Smoker, etc).

Science...It's what's for dinner!

I have a Dish HD DVR. One of the Voom channels carries Good Eats in HD, although mostly old episodes. I remember seeing that Alton Brown was a cinematogpher. Explains the cameras in the oven, cabinets, fridge, etc.

Alright everyone ....enough puns on this thread.

Pot Smoker...Florist Fire

Thank you and good night!

I have smoked many foods in this particular unit. (Chickens, Briskets, Pork Shoulders, Ribs, Jalapenos, Cornish Hens, Salmon steaks, Venison, etc). It works very well, and just add new wood chunks when the smoking stops.

Steve

Didn’t know that. I’ll have to watch it again now.

Did you make sure your pottery was lead free? When heated lead can vaporize at cooking temps.

Its an unglazed terra cotta pot from any hardware or garden supply store.From what I have read, it is the paint and glaze that has the lead in it.

Terra Cotta Potted Meat

How about some photos of your invention fired up ?
And food samples too.
I kinda like a glaze on my BBQ...

I've got to put this thread on my ignore list!

Where does one find the burner? Is that a timer switch in the black box?

I have also read the lead is in the glaze. Plus the temps are not that high in a smoker, it's low and steady.

This is a project that has been on my to-do list since I saw the show (hey, doesn't he build that thing and set it up right next to his Airstream?). I think I might go looking for a pot today!

But where do you get big hardwood chunks like that?
