I will try to add more pics of the smoker, if I can figure it out but all it is a cabinet made only of wood and plywood with a rack that you can make or, I used the rack from out of my old smoker buy yourself an electric burner and a small cast iron skillet and drill a hole through the side of the cabinet for the cord. No need to vent it after all ya want the smoke. And it will come out any way. Put small chips or saw dust like wood in the pan and plug it in on high if ya build a bigger one use a double burner

it works better than any smoker I have ever bought and I have owned 8 of them

Very interesting, csifishguy. I also would love to see some photos of your operation with the smoker.

Sometimes, I just put a chunk of cherry or other wood right on the BBQ next to what I am cooking. It starts smoking and add a nice flavour to the food. I am not sure about the health benefits or doing this though. Any thoughts?

Another thought …. have you ever tried cooking on marble on the BBQ? I saw a WagJag deal the other day for a marble slab, and bought one. So far, I am quite impressed.

Well I love smoked foods but they say that there not the best for ya, but what is hahah I usually smoke fish like salmon or trout just make a brine of 1/2 CUP OF SALT AND 1/2 CUP SUGAR AND A QUART OF Water soak the fish over night in the fridge but not in a metal bowl. Then rinse the fish well, then if ya want to you can put on all kinds of stuff like brown sugar, spices, teriyaki sauce or what ever ya like then smoke with 3 pan fulls of chips and it will smoke for 3 hours, then just leave in the smoker for a few more hours till the look ya want I like mine dark brown and dry on the outside, then I like to rest in the fridge smoked fish I like cool not hot. Great with beer cheese and crackers, go make yourself some mmmm

Last night, I cooked a nice filet of salmon on the marble slab on the BBQ after getting the temperature up to about 400F. I had also put a chunk of cherry next to the slab which started to smoke. The beauty of the slab is that one does not get any flare up under the meat/fish. One can always spray water on the chunk of wood to keep it from bursting into flame. Just be careful not to spray water on the hot marble, or it could crack. The fish cooked beautifully on the slab, and the smoke wafted over it giving it a nice delicate flavour. My wife likes her food hot, so no cooling is in order for her. It was good however. I’ve done the same for ribs, and pork tenderloin which was really good.

I still want to see some photo of how you set up your smoker. You’ve got two spots left at the top of the page. I am interested in the cast pan and electric burner set up. Could you also use an electric fry pan? One can find these readily on Kijiji or Craig’s List.

Great smoking chamber. Hmmm .... I wonder how an electric fry pan would work in there. I see you use HIGH on your burner. Do you ever have concerns about overheating or fire? I wonder if the electric fry pan would be hot enough?

I always use it on high and have never had a problem with it, I do not know if an electric skillet will work you will have to give it a try good luck let me know how it works out, I love mine
