Because smoked dead animals are at least as tasty as BBQed dead animals, we need to have a nice smoker. While the BigGreenEggBBQ can act as a smoker as well, it has a fairly limited capacity. Furhtermore, it can not be electrically operated, which makes temperature control more tricky.

So enter RevSmoker.


The idea is to use a steel drum to build something like [this

Mechanical and electrical parts

  • steel drum that used to hold pineapple juice
  • a wood chip box
  • one or two grids to hold the dead animal parts being smoked
  • a cover with a handle
  • a electrical stove, for heating the wood chips
  • extension cord

Electronic parts

  • a thermometer keeping track of the temp.
  • an arduino to measure the temperature, display it on a small LCD screen and control the heater using a relay
  • a 220V relay
  • a TMP36 [temp sensor]
  • a LCD display to show the temp
  • a turn knob to adjust the temp

Software parts
