AB's Flowerpot Smoker - anyone made it?

janniecooks | Sep 6, 2011 06:03 AM

In Alton Brown's "Good Eats 2: the Middle Years", which I just checkout out from the library, he presents a Flowerpot Smoker he devised as a smoker that provides a good substitute for/alternative to a barbeque pit. And it can be built cheaply - he put it together for less than fifty bucks! He built if from an electric hot plate, unglazed terra-cotta pot and round planter, a grill grate, a couple bricks, and a tin of hardwood chips. It looks like a good alternative to buying a smoker, and I'd like to make one for a young and broke relative who's yearning to have a smoker. Have any CHer's tried this at home? Interested in all feedback. Thanks in advance!
