How to Build your Own Smoker from a Trashcan


A smoker is another way of cooking meat in an excellent manner. While its main purpose is for cooking, a smoker is also a great source of heat during cold times. Since it's flexible and convenient, many would surely want to know how to make one. The good news is that you can easily make propane smoker out of a trashcan! If you are one of the interested individuals, here's how you do it:

Step 1: Gathering Material

This DIY smoker is easy to make. You will only need to buy a clean trash bin, electric hot plate, and a metal box that would fit the trashcan perfectly.

Step 2: Assembling the Smoker

At the bottom of the trashcan, create a hole big enough to slip the wire from the electric hot plate. In this way, you can connect the wire from an outlet to turn it on. Once done, place the metal box on top and fill it will firewood chips. When the smoke is already coming out of the bin, place grill wire on the topmost part of the bin and then cover it with the trashcan lid.

Step 3: Using the Smoker

At this point, you are already set. You can now place your seasoned meat on the grill wire and cover it with the trashcan lid to prevent the smoke from coming out. You will only have to check if your firewood chunks have gone out or need to be replenished.
