Installing Bella on side drilled hole of 3D
« on: March 26, 2023, 02:30:17 PM »
Hi. Iím having a difficult time with understanding how to install the Bella cold smoker into the side of the 3D.  There is a hole drilled that is plugged in both sides.  I was able to remove outside plug but inside wonít come off and I canít get it out.  Is there any method to removing it

Not speaking from any actual knowledge here, but it seems like if you got the outside plug/cap out then you should be able to run a long screwdriver or a small pipe (rigid copper pipe?) through and knock it out with a couple light taps.

we are a go!

took some force prying which i was trying to avoid since normally you don't wanna forcefully remove anything... but i finagled it out and got the bella hooked in .. cold smoking some soy sauce i fermented for 3 years in it now with some cherry wood branches from my garden and red oak.  :)
