I saw a Grant smoker sell on E-bay recently and thought I would like to have one. I knew there was no way I could
afford the $10,000 to $15,000 price tag, so I thought I would have a go at making a version of it.
I would like to be able to take credit for designing the movement. I cannot believe how clever the old-timers were. I
managed to get a photo of an original and fashioned mine after it. The Grant smoker actually inhales and exhales from his
mouth. Quite different from other smoking automatons which inhale through a tube and exhale from the mouth.
