    Wow I so want one of those mini-smoker Richard(i think) used. Does anyone know if that's a custom made tool or if there's somewhere I can get one? I can't figure out the workings but man would I love one.

    I haven't seen the device myself, but I'm assuming that it's essentially a hand fan, with a very small fan inside a tube. The smoking chips sits in the back end of the tube, and as the fan rotates, it pulls air through the tube. Since the chips sits at the back, the vacuum pulls the smoke through the tube and out.

    It's most likely custom made, but it shouldn't be hard to make.

    that is so cool. I wish they'd interview them about the $200 worth of stuff they brought with them! (And I wonder if tools like that count, or if they had carte blanche on tools and just had to limit themselves to $200 on the ingredients....)
