so I went ahead made a big old fire in it to make myself feel better about doing it. This morning I got up and decided I wanted to smoke my bacon for breakfast and other than the Ginormous size of the thing it worked well and surprizingly enough kept the temp right around 250 without me having to play with it at all. I think Im going to have to make a smaller one also If I want to smoke somthing small like today its kind of a waste.

Well I can tell you the electric/hot plate ones don't work.
I used a 20 gal can, got a hot plate that works and heats up to 300F +, and the temp in my lid thermometer hovers around 150 most of the time. What a waste, but now I know....
So I may turn it into a charcoal smoker instead, but now I wish I just would have boughten a cheap one to see if I like it.

I feel it my duty to let everyone know you can also make a smoker that AB made on one of his episodes, I recall he had a box, a hot plate, a small skillet, dowels, a rack and sawdust.

the sawdust should be the same as the chips because anything else ruins the food. I think the episode has AB on vacation per his wife's orders and he cant do any cooking at all.
