I didn't see the program but, from the picture, it looks like a gadget they created themselves rather than purchased commercially.

I just received a reply from Star Chefs:

"The smoker is actually a hand-held mini-vac for computer keyboards; you just have to rig it up so that it burns whatever you want to burn and it will create smoke! I've bought then on-line and I've also found them at Bed Bath and Beyond. ? Katsuya Fukushima of Caf? Atlantico and Minibar "

Thanks Snoop. It must be a version of this "Meat Smoker" I found in the UK.
Google Image Result for http://www.growhigh.co.uk/catalog/images/power-bongs.jpg

The black piece is a battery powered air pump.

Interesting. I'm shocked though at the pic on the site provided. I could of swore that in the final judging the food was on a wood board with the dome over it.....hmmmm!

Now that is an inspired find, Jeekinz. I see the most likely-looking smoker is sold out. Guess there must be a lot of additional demand now

Yeah, maybe I can sweet talk YT into picking one up somewhere for me. I'm still curious as to how one would convert a keyboard vac though.

I have a keyboard vac - gift from my Dad, not the kind of thing I'd ordinarily purchase. I tend to clean my keyboard by turning it upside down and giving it a good shake and whack. To cut a short story shorter, there is no way you could convert the keyboard vacuum I have to use it as a smoker.

I was thinking you would have to reverse the polarity on the motor so it (mods - don't take this the wrong way, please) blows instead of sucks. You would then have to make some sort of "bowl" attached to the, now intake, part of the vacuum. And obviously, any filters would have to be removed.
