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

I start off with a 3 lb pork shoulder roast.

Generously rub with Naked Spur Dry Rub

For the pork, I'll use apple wood chips

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?

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.

I have one of these smokers and they work really well (although I don't have a comparison to a full sized, outdoor smoker). Only wisps of smoke escape from the container and these are pulled into your exhaust. Makes the home smell good.

I think I am going to break this out this weekend.

I want one!!!!!!!!

Living in Kansas City I perfected my skills as a smoker, but since moving back to Michigan, and living in a downtown loft with no deck or greenspace I haven't been able to do anything to cure my jones for Hickory Smoked meats. Thanks for showing me this alternative.

So what's your recipe for "Naked Spur Smoked Porter Beer-B-Q Sauce?"

You are a god amongst men. I knew stovetop smokers existed, but I didn't know how well they worked. I'm gonna go check one out now. Thanks!

I love my mini Cameron too. I'd like to buy the bigger model soon so I can do larger cuts of meats, but even the small one still does some great stuff - alder smoked salmon, apple smoked chicken thighs and mesquite smoked burgers are some of our favorites. I'm definitely going to give that Smoked Porter BBQ Sauce a try - that sounds amazing!
