Big Smoker Sports Chrome Exhaust Pipes
FARM SHOW visited Boehler just as he was about ready to deliver his latest smoker to Jim Hitchings of Waggoner, Ill. The smoker is made from a used 250-gal. anhydrous ammonia tank.
The fire is generated in a 100-gal. tank, mounted in front that was originally an air compressor storage tank. A 110-volt squirrel cage fan is used to inject air at the base of the tank. It feeds the fire and pushes smoke through several baffles at the back side of the firebox and into the larger smoker tank, entering just below the grille.
"The idea is to diffuse the air as evenly as possible under the grille," says Boehler. "The firebox is large enough that you can also cook on a stainless steel grate directly over the fire."
Smoke exits the smoker via a pair of chrome truck exhaust pipes, fitted with dampers.
