If it happens that you left your “expensive” smoker at home, you could always craft a budget smoker from a cardboard box. Previously we’ve shown you how to convert a pedal bin into a smoker, but have you considered an alternative?

YouTube channel COOK WITH ME.AT shows off their budget smoker in the video above. The smoker is made using a cardboard box, a wooden dowel and a toilet paper tube. The sawdust is added to a folded foil bowl and placed at the bottom of the box. Although we can’t vouch for the safety of this budget contraption it seems it works just as well as a regular smoker.

Watch the smoker being put together in the video above.
