A bigger CSG

Post  steve white on Fri Jan 07, 2011 6:45 pm

Hi,
Are there any plans to make a bigger CSG at all? Really happy with the one I've got and I get anywhere between 12 - 15 hrs on a burn but it would be nice to have one that ran for 24hrs or more........

Hi Steve, Mack,

Having been out in pouring rain twice today to refill and relight my CSG, I for one would be more than willing to buy a bigger one.

Look forward to more news soon

Hi guys

Any news on the bigger model as a new smoking addict my wife is getting rather tired of me waking up at the crack of dawn to keep the smoldering going. For some reason she objects to the smell of oak cologne first thing in the morning!

I have discovered how to lengthen the smoke time with very little effort, once it has been burning for 6-8 hours you just refill the burnt part making sure not to smother the smoulder and you then have probably another 6-8 hours and twice the amount of smoke for a short period. you can only really only do this once before you have to dust it all off as the ash build up does cause a problem.

A much bigger unit with may i suggest slightly larger gauze and deeper wider channel (for more smoke and easy cleaning see below) would be ideal. the problem i have is with cleaning the unit after a number of burns, as it does get rather clogged up and restricts the air flow thus putting out the smoulder. Any tips anyone on cleaning ?

Thanks

To clean mine I use a small wire brush after every burn and once in a blue moon I use the wire brush and Acetone, then give it a good thorough with hot soapy water. Comes up a treat.

Thanks Steve,

I have poped mine in the dishwasher as it was very clogged and then went over it with a wire brush and it cleared most of the clogging.

I will try your method next time and see how i get on.

cheers

Cleaning a CSG

Post  impeed on Wed Aug 10, 2011 10:14 pm

I agree, brushing with a small brush and poking out all the little bits that get stuck really helps...might be a bit extreme ...but used a kitchen blowtorch to excellent success, just played the flame over all the mesh untill it glows cherry red and the charcoaly stuck in bits just vapourised away...might void the warrantee but mines over a year old. Have used the same method with those teapots with a fine mesh strainer insert that gets clogged with tannins eventually. bloomin marvelous!!!!

Another idea but not tried ...could stick it upside down on the drive and blast the living **** (reads dirt) out of it with a pressure washer.

Hi all,
I've found a much quicker way of lighting the CSG and thought people might like know. I bought a small windproof lighter from Ebay (for less than 4.00), the sought with a small blue jet for a flame. Just fill the CSG and direct the flame from the lighter straight onto the dust from above.............. it lights in about 5 seconds so no more fiddling about with candles and screws. An added advantage is that you can light the CSG in any place on the spiral so if you want an increased amount of smoke you can light it at both ends. OK you reduce the burn time by half but I still get 5-6hrs of smoking.
