I just use a cold smoke generator in the bottom of my cook chamber. Fill it up with sawdust and sit it on the transfer tube and light it. Works fine.

I've been contemplating something like that as well. Which one are you using?

I got a cheap one off eBay. It's the square maze type.

Cool.

I may make the firebox reducer, I've got enough sheet to at least make an attempt.

All good thoughts.

Well, nutz. Not just that shelf.... the expanded metal screen between firebox and flue has already failed and was holding some pretty good lumps of ash. Doesn't look like a pleasant job to weld in a new screen, but looks like I'll have to do that when I get a chance. I may also need to re-evaluate what charcoal I'm using.
I haven't gotten around to fixing this yet, and just had a dangerous thought. I've got some quarter inch round stainless rod stock here. I built replacement cooking grates for my charcoal grill out of it, and that's held up very well over 4 years. Weld up a grate with probably half inch spacing and vertical rods to replace the simple expanded mild steel grate. I also replaced the bottom of the charcoal tray in my grill with stainless expanded sheet and that's also held up to the direct heat very well. I'd really rather just do this once. The welded rod grate would be the longest lasting for sure, but considering how the stainless expanded sheet has held up, that'd certainly be a faster fix.

A little bit of gratification from over the weekend...... (I still haven't painted this thing yet!)

I attended a family funeral on Saturday. One of my cousins, who I haven't seen in the 2 years since my brother's surprise birthday party asked me before he even said hello "are you still smoking?" :D There's also discussion about a cousins get-together next year, or potentially the year following, and there's already a suggestion out that I haul the smoker over for the bash. Oh, darn, twist my arm harder..... ow, ow, ow.

Haha, sounds like a good tome in the making.
