Blast from the Past: Homemade Portable Smoker

Last year, a friend of mine sent me pictures of a project he fiddled with creating a homemade portable smoker to take camping or out for picnics.   Well, a year later, he is entering his first non-sanctioned BBQ cook off this upcoming weekend.  So, in honor of his first foray into competition BBQ, here is a look back down memory lane.  As for the competition, we'll let you know how that turns out...

Ascot the smoker, maybe some of you will be inspired to make one for your summertime fun!

Thanks for stopping by...



  1. That was an interesting smoker. Did the red color hold up after use? We made a grill out of a Safeway cart once.

    1. Other than some minor discoloration at the bottom, the paint has held up. I would be interested in seeing a post on that shopping cart grill...

    2. I was a teenager and a keg of beer was involved. Luckily no pictures.

    3. Ah, yes, young, drunk, and stupid. How I wish I remember those days...
