I was given an old looking copper smoker tonight. The belows are shot, dried up and cracking, but the copper has a lovely pantena! Just wondering about how old it may be? There are no markings or tradenames but it does have a real small opening for the smoke.
I bet that Paul Jackson, the Texas State Entomologist and Apiary Inspector could answer that question. He brought his smoker collection to our meeting this last spring and gave a demonstration. He also wrote a book "Smoking Allowed" on the history of smokers. I don't have his e-mail address, but I bet I could help you find it.
