Default Alton Brown smoker

I think I remember seeing you here that some of you have made the alton brown ceramic smoker before. I have been reading about it alot online too and it looks like alot of people have trouble getting a hot plate that works well. What did you all end up doing?

I have tried this, and IT WORKS GREAT!!

I've made three batches of pulled pork, each with all that great smokiness I wanted.

We just use a normal hot plate, like any college student would have in their dorm room, topped by a metal (not aluminum foil) pie plate. I set it on 2 when I'm using wood chips, and 3 with chunks. My favorite is hickory, but mesquite is also nice.

I would think that WalyWorld or similar store would have the hot plate. I think we got ours at Bed, Bath, & Beyond.

Good luck!
