Design

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

Mechanical parts - must have :

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

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 suing a relay
  • a 220V relay
  • a TMP36 [temp sensor
