View Full Version : Smoke generator

I could of swore I read some post just yesterday about a smoke generator on Ebay I think. Some of your are already building one but I can't locate the thread.

Anyway I don't know much about pellet cookers or how they work exactly and I know this is different. My question is, since it uses a electric air pump to keep the pellets burning, would it be legal to use in a competition? I understand it is not generating heat, so I am thinking it would be ok.

Thanks for the link.

After looking at the photos I am thinking a longer tube for longer then the 3 or 4 hour burn time the inventor states and I believe it would be better to locate the air tube above the lower cap just below the grate holding the pellets so it wont get clogged with ash. I would use a steel pipe threaded on both ends and use end caps. That would do a way with the hose clamp and would make taking the bottom cap off for lighting and emptying much easier.

I know I am reinventing the wheel but thats what I do best. :rolleyes:
