Kona Queen in Captain Kook, HI used to have (they might still, but ownership changed so who knows if they still use it), what I assume was the largest smoker in the world. Gus called it the "Super Smoker." It was actually a barrel with a big fan, plumbed into a manifold, used to smoke bees up through an excluder into their cell builders. It smoked something like 40 hives at once. I can't find any pictures, but Gus Rouse was pretty proud of it.
