Factory Made Smoke Generators
Smoke Daddy™ makes excellent smoke generators using the straight high nozzle design. The wire screen that holds wood chips is secured above the bottom and the fresh air is supplied below the screen. Placing wood on a screen permits the introduction of primary air below the burning wood and better combustion. This design is known as stool grate firebox and is described in Combustion Theory and Fire Pit Design.

With the air pump disconnected, the generator still generates enough smoke due to the natural draft. This may be enough smoke for a little smoker.
