HOWTO Make a trashcan meat-smoker for less than $50

Brian figured out how to hack together a damned fine trashcan meat-smoker for less than $50:

So there you have it, a working smoker made from easily available parts.

Here's what I spent:
Trash Can w/ lid: $12.00
Electric Hot Plate: $13.00
Grating: $10.00
Wood Chip Box: $10.00 (actually, I already had this, but they are cheap if you need to buy one.)
Temperature Gauge: $9.00

So for just over $50, you can build a smoker.
