    Excellent DIY fish smoker

    I really couldn’t justify paying 30 + quid for a metal box to smoke my fish! So I went to carboot and picked up an old enamel baking dish with lid for 50p



    and an ex army surplus hexamine burner for £1.50




    Went home used an old grill rack cut down to size, a bit of charcoal or some wood chips and hey presto, a superb little fish/food smoker…..and at that price you can afford to chuck it away when it has been well used!!!!



    I have since tried it, soaking wood chips in amaretto (almond liquor) to smoke a bream…yummy whole 3lb bream smoked to perfection in 20 minutes.

    Clickety click the little dancing man to see video of Crutchies smoker in action!

    Nice tin!

    If the boot sale does not provide the goodies, there are cheap alternatives:

    Thanks Crutchless and Salar for the info. I've been thinking of getting a smoker for ages and you've both just saved me a fortune!
