So the aquarium pump was not powerful enough to push smoke out of the UDS. I changed the aquarium pump to a nebulizer on a variable voltage control. A lot of smoke at the level of the grain now:

That's very slick. Do you think a smaller grain chamber with venting would draft well enough to use an aquarium pump?

I used a tailgating grill as a second chamber on top of a buddy's smoker with a few elbows. It worked fairly well as the temp stayed below 100 but the capacity is limited and there are 0 points for aesthetics on my solution.

I used a couple $1 stainless steel lint traps cut open and sewn on with stranded copper links to hold the grain. It took a jiffy pop looking tin foil ring to get 3lbs of malt to fit under the lid.

Were you able to get a couple hours of smoke with your cocktail shaker or did you have to reload?

Built mine today and tested it before soldering the joints. I had to use foil to make the connections tight while testing.
