Seems like a few questions lately about smoke generator's so I figured I throw up some pics of mine, may inspire some better ideas.




It is 3 1/2" sqare tube, 12" long. I cut 3" off, put in some doubled up 3/4" expanded metal for smaller holes and welded it back together.
I drilled 3 ,3/8" holes on each side, added a short nipple, to connect to my uds with a union, and added a fitting for the aquarium pump hose.
A few pieces of lit lump on the bottom and a handful of chips or small chunks lasts about 2 hours.
Just some stuff I had in the spare parts pile, if anyone else has pics of thier own they would like to add, I'm sure it would help someone else. Very Happy

k.a.m., Thank you. Having you use the same design is like a famous painter copying a little kids crayon drawing. Embarassed
I'd like to get a few more blocks of cheese done, but it was 85 here today. Shocked

Thanks for the pics GF. The shot of the inside is exactly what I was looking for.

I also like the little shelf for the air pump. That is a great idea.

I can't wait to get into making and trying this out.

god dam you George now look at what you have made me do!
I spent some time doing a little R&D and came up with this Very Happy
i think you will like it George, may be better for making smoked cheese as you don't need hot coals so less heat Smile It works by causing a vacuum so as it sucks the smoke out it draws the air in.
any way here it is enjoy Very Happy
2 vids here of it working 1st one with the sawdust 2nd with the chips and new chip pot. you will be amassed at how quick it is to get it going!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG4RlbhSJJ4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilsgMhVEDpo

parts list:
15mm copper pipe
8mm copper pipe
copper brake pipe (that's used on cars)
1X15mm tee
1X15mm too 8mm reducer
1X15mm though take fitting.

the air pipe is set just before the center about 2mm i found i got the optimum vacuum set this way.
i solder a small piece of brake pipe into the end of the 8mm pipe to reduce it down it works better that way.








i only had this tin to test it out, and only had sawdust to hand.



as you can see it works great Very Happy



another view.



i had a cheap spray gun not being use so this was to be my chip pot.
i had to make some cherry chips to try it with chips and not sawdust.
works great.



i tried it with just 2X 5mm holes IT NEEDED 4X5MM HOLES.



3X5mm holes in the bottom.

Tony it's a fixed one but you can buy little valves to regulate them.
