Look for a wood chip smoker box from Lowes. I think it's about $11 or $12



Put some old hard drive magnets on the back

That is what I did, perfect for 3 taps.

I used a piece of vinyl gutter and some magnets to mount it and it works great for my setup

I got one of those. Need to finish it, but I cut a large opening in the top and am installing some black mesh to replace the large holes. Probably going to use hard drive magnets on the back as well.

OT - sounds like a large truck is going by, but it's just a sudden downpour...
