Just read a posting on another thread about the fear of fire danger from smokers. I read somewhere about getting a used Army ammo can to keep my smoker in. FYI I found a large ammo can at an army surplus place for $12. I took the smoker to be sure it would fit. This wasn't the normal smallish 30-caliber can, but quite large and heavy. Locks down real nice. Keeps the smoker safe in transport, and the shop smoke free when I store it.
Regards,
Steven

I carry mine around in a 12qt galvanized bucket available at most home depots, Lowes etc. for around $7.00.

I like the closeable top. It'll keep my smoker from stinking up the car after I visit an outyard, or a newbie having troubles with their hives.

I use the metal canister that I seem to get every year with the holiday popcorn in it. Works great for me and the price is even better.

We have used built in smoker boxes in the beekeeping vehicles for over 50 years.They often where mounted under the box, with a door that folded down.
