Popcorn can smoker?

Are you tired of the same old grill flavor? Do you want to impress your friends with a unique barbecue experience? Look no further than the popcorn can smoker! Yes, that’s right, a smoker made out of a popcorn can.


To get started on building your popcorn can smoker, gather these materials:

  • Large metal popcorn tin (empty and clean)
  • Grill grate or wire mesh
  • Charcoal or wood chips
  • Aluminum foil
  • Drill or hammer and nail

Building Steps

  1. Begin by poking holes in the bottom of the popcorn can using either a drill or hammer and nail. This will allow air flow for smoking.

  2. Next, place aluminum foil inside the can as an insulator.

  3. On one side of the lid, use your drill to create several small holes for ventilation.

  4. Fill half of your charcoal pit with charcoal and light it up using a fire starter cube (or paper). Alternatively use hardwood like oak chunks for that smoky flavour!

  5. While waiting for the coals to ash over grab two bricks if you have them laying about otherwise cooking mitts are useful so you don’t burn yourself off anything flammable near by!

6.Once all is ready place grill grate onto top of bricks/gloves then put another brick beneath to keep secure (Safety first!)

7.Place soaked hickory chips (use any fragrant wood chip as per preference) onto hot coals before putting meat on rack – this should generate enough smoke through vented perforations already created from drilling procedure above mentioned step 3)

8.Meat time! Add what desired cut into aluminium tins within grill plate surface area beside charcoals/or under griddle sections which meant sealing it tightly with more aluminium held down wouldn’t? hurt either…

9.Cooking process takes roughly own time depending,size and how rare cooked meat expected to be.

  1. Once time is up, remove the meat from the can and marvel at your homemade smoker masterpiece!

Tips for Best Results

While popcorn can smokers are simple and fun DIY projects, there are a few tips to keep in mind when using them:

  • Use hardwood or flavored wood chips for best flavor
  • Soak wood chips before adding to charcoal
  • Make sure all vents are open for proper airflow (especially critical if vegetarian bbq party guests don’t want food smell eminating too much mother nature’s way)
  • Leave enough space around the meat for smoke circulation

With these tips in mind, you’re well on your way to serving up some delicious smoked meats that will have your friends begging for more.

Safety first!

Always make sure you follow safety protocols such as wearing fireproof mitts/gloves while building! Smokers reach high temperatures which mean it could take off any unwanted hair on exposed arms/hand regions faster than expected (so no hairy barbecues tonight huh?).

In conclusion,

There’s no need to break the bank buying an expensive smoker. With just a few basic materials – many of which may already be sitting around in storage – anyone can create their own backyard popcorn tin smoker!

So what’re ya waiting’ for?! Grab those tools (see above), get creative with flavors (dried herb pluckings entertainingly added directly onto coals makes interesting aroma pulls)and start grilling today!(momentary pause recommended after consumption of frankfurters).
