Some of the experienced beekeepers recommend that new beekeepers avoid buying smokers that are too small.
When it comes to smokers, is tall the opposite of small?
I can appreciate the importance of not running out of smoke during a significant hive manipulation. I can also see how the number of hives could multiply like rabbits.
Would it be a mistake to purchase a 4x10 smoker if we were visiting just a couple hives; or would a 4x7 be more practical.
Does anyone feel that there is any advantage to the dome style (looks like a Rauchboy) smokers such as those sold by Brushy Mt.?
I'm overly concerned about this because my daughter wants Santa to bring her dad a nice smoker for Christmas.
I'd like to thank all of you for the time you devote to answering so many posts. Having access to all of this knowledge and advice is really a gift.
This old Cold-Blast on Ebay would make a nice decoration.
