You at home and you need a smoker barbecue? You haven't got one and none of your friends do either?
Well...here is your answer!
Either go out and buy yourself one or...
Make one! Yes make one...here is a simple and quick method anyone can do. You will be smoking your meats in no time!
This is a quick cheap design and believe or not it turns out to be a highly effective!
You ready...let's do it!
- A metal trash can
- Electric hot plate (single burner)
- Grill grid or oven grid
- Aluminum foil tray
- Wood chips
All these parts can be bought at a local hardware store and BBQ specialist store. (very cheap!)
• Start by drilling a small hole on the side of the trash can. The hole must be about 5 cm from the bottom. (make sure it's big enough for the cord to fit through)
• File the edges so the hole is smooth. (so you don't cut the cord!)
• Place the the hot plate at the botom of the trash can. Slot the cord through the hole you just drilled.
• Fill the aluminum foil tray with wood chips and place on the hot tray.
• The grill grid then gets placed on the top of the trash can. Most round grill grids are the same size as the trash can. (use your oven grid if you don't have a grill grid)
• Turn the hot plate on and shortly afterwards smoke will appear. (success!)
• Place food on the grill and start smoking.
• Control the smoke flow by leaving a small air opening with the lid.
• Raplace the wood chips every 90 minutes.
Don't open the lid too much as you will loose your desired heat level.
Keeping your temperature between 220 - 230 degrees to cook the meat right.
Trash can smokers work really well and don't cost much
This method has been tried and tested by many. So...give it go!
