    I use a rocket ammo can, I have a piece of metal ductwork that partiions off one side for the smoker, the other side hold lighter, matches, paper, fuel, and an extra hive tool. Heavy, but works real nice and seals up tight, especially when a hot smoker gets pt in it and it vaccuum seals.

    Radar Sidetrack..... If they can find a Army Surplus Store, they normally go for around $12.00 to $14.00 and no shipping cost.

    Anyone near Mont Eagle in Tennessee, they have them for $12.00. The Army Surplus Store on Hwy 231, near Westmorland Tn., has them for $14.00.

    I would bet you could find them cheaper near any Army Post.

    Ammo cans work great for this. I work at the plant that makes all the US military ammo cans and all the ones sold in stores.

    I bought an ammo box for my 10" Mann Lake smoker. Sadly, I don't know what it was made for, cause it was repainted.

    Turned out that the tip of the smoker was about 1/2-inch too high But I found that if I opened the smoker, the tip pivoted back just enough to fit perfectly! And since the can is airtight it was ok that the smoker was opened a crack

    Good luck

    Dadant smoker is to big for a 5.56 can, not long enough.
    Don't think you are on the right road simply because it is a well worn pathway.

    This may be what I have! That foam was a pain to remove

    Gary... If you don't mind, which one did you get, andd what was it priced at.

    At Mont Eagle they have gone from $12.00 to $14.00 now. But, that is still below what they are selling for on EBay.

    printing on it says 800 ctrdg 5.56 mm

    it was the biggest they had and I can fit the 7" smoker from Dadant's into it laying down, plus there's room for a bee brush, hive tool, lighter, and a small spray can of WD-40 (to help in lighting it)

    have to squeeze the bellows a bit to get it closed, but it works

    the local Surplus Store had it for about 20 bucks..21.95 I think it was, a bit more that a lot of places, but I'm happy to pay the bit more and support this guy as he is a veteran

    Thanks for supporting our Veterans.

    That is the same container that I use. Commonly called a fat fifty.
