    I have always enjoyed smoked/BBQ, thought that was closest thing to heaven. I started with a Green Egg, then a Bradley Smoker and just added a Hasty Bake. I am retired and enjoy having the time to experment with different types of BBQ/Smokes.

    I have just built a smoke generator that I can use on the Hasty Bake that provides added space for a cold smoke. It don't get that hot where I live( below 75 most of the time) so its pretty easy to cold smoke.

    I used a 3"X18" steel tube, used a venture system I had laying around from ??? placed it it the top of the tube, place some aluminum mesh in the bottom which I have open, made a cap for the top. Used a aquarium pump to power the generator. I am still experimenting with the generator . I believe I read on the Forum that is is better to pull the smoke from the bottom of the tube vs the top. I may try that, although I not for sure what performance I will improve.

    I am really glad I found this site, so many knowledgeable and helpful people. I have found lots of info. just using the search.

  2. Hello Bob, welcome to the site, Now that you have time no telling what all you can come up with, building is fun. Looking forward to reading you post and seeing some pictures.
