As many of you know, I live in a small condo in the city. No deck, no yard, I have to be creative.

This is a companion to my All Grain Condo Brewing thread. It is also inspired by EdWort who always manages to make me hungry when reading his BBQ posts no matter how much I've eaten beforehand.

I love beer and I love BBQ. This will hopefully inspire other condo and apartment dwellers to not feel limited by their surroundings.

Here I give you Condo Smoking 101.

I use a Cameron Stove Top Smoker

WOW, that looks incredibly delicious. Although I was already a little hungry, now I really want to eat that! I will have to settle on some small snack though.

Thanks for sharing, I'm just wondering where you got the smoker from?

I bought mine a few years ago at a local kitchen store, Sur La Table

You can also order them online directly from Camerons

thats an awesome solution.....where did you vent the smoke tho?

I've been thinking about building a smoker, or converting a grill into a smoker....problem is I can't weld.
