Right now the smoked malt is in a paper bag. I'm gonna wait a week before I use it. I've heard that's it's better to let it mellow out a bit. The malt smells fantastic and tasted great. Hoping it'll make a great beer.

I made a Grodziskie last week with 1/2 wheat malt and 1/2 store bought beach wood smoked 2 row. Gonna compare these two when they're done.

I took it a bit further and hooked to smoke generator (cocktail shaker soldered to a stainless tee) to a medium size electric oven.
works pretty good , some technical problems on the first use but the final product (turkey breast ,chicken and goose legs) was excellent.

That is excellent. Did you cook the meat in the toaster oven while you smoked? or was the toaster oven just used as a smoke chamber?

It was cooked and smoked at the same time.
Built in temperature control makes it so much easier to operate compare to wood smokers.

Does anyone have an actual parts list for making one with a cocktail shaker? That I could actually walk into the plumbing section of HD with a list a pick up all the connectors for making one? have been looking online at various design, and all of them seem to be thrown together with parts folks have on hand, or put together by folks with a knowledge of various plumbing and gas fittings....but noone took the time to write up a simple list of what's needed to build this thing. Anyone made one like the OP's that could actually put a list of fittings and couplers together?

Whenever I'm putting together a tutorial, or a recipe, I make sure to provide even the most rudimentary of parts, or ingredients, realizing that not everyone might have a working knowledge of x, y, or z, but STILL might want to build or make whatever it is.....
