Re: Transporting a Hot Smoker
first ... I do drive a truck, so I most always carry the smoker in the back.
I started with a _metal_ 5 gallon bucket with a lid. I most always wad up a twist of paper towel to stop up the snout, which also puts out the fire.
( I also started with a round wooden plug for the snout, but lost it ... no time to whittle another!)
I now use an ammo can, I had a couple of the larger ones that my "large" smoker fit in, so I use it. I flip the lid off to set the smoker on, so it doesn't melt the plastic bed liner in my truck.
Started summer of 2013, just another new guy, tinkering with bees.
