    They do already make a battery powered smoker with a fan and heating element. I have one and absolutly love it. I can light it up in seconds and i just use pine shavings or wood pellets. http://www.mannlakeltd.com/beekeepin...es/page61.html They are more expensive now than when i bought mine a couple years ago

    I stuff the end with grass and put it in a metal box with a tight lid.

    I think you want something portable that would run off your 12V vehicle supply.

    Mine goes in a metal 5 gallon bucket with a cloth tool organizer over the outside. Everything organized on the outside, nothing to catch fire on the inside. I clip the bucket to the racks of my fourwheeler when working close to the house, but it normally rides in the passenger side of my double aluminum dog box. It shares that side with all my bee stuff.
