How to Make a Smoker in Minecraft

One of the key resources you require in Minecraft is a smoker. If you are new to Minecraft, you may be unsure how to make and utilize one. In this Minecraft tutorial, you will learn what a smoker is, how to create one, and how to utilize it in your Minecraft world.

A smoker can be used just like a furnace. This means you can use it for tasks such as cooking food.  It can also serve as a butcher’s job site block. A great benefit of using a smoker is that it takes half the time a regular furnace takes. This means you get to save time and fuel.

Therefore, having a smoker is a huge advantage if you’re playing in survival mode. Since this object is elementary and cheap to make, there is no reason why you should not have one in your inventory.

So, in this article, we will explain everything you need to know to create one. Read on to find out.

Crafting a smoker is straightforward. You’ll only be requiring a few items. Those items include four logs, one furnace, and one crafting table. Before we start, let’s look at how to get the logs and furnace.

Crafting a smoker is straightforward

Getting logs is easy. You first have to find an oak tree in your Minecraft world. You can find an oak tree easily in the Swamp, Forest, Messa Plateau biomes, and Windswept Hills. Once you find an oak tree, you have to chop the tree trunk.

Even though you can use your bare hands to chop down the tree, it is recommended that you use a tool such as an ax since it will be faster. Now, use the ax to chop the tree trunk and pick up the oak log before it disappears.

There you have it! Now add the logs to your inventory for later use.

Now let’s look at how to get a furnace. You will need eight pieces of Blackstone or Cobblestone. Next, open your crafting table so that it is in a 3×3 grid. The next step is perhaps the most important one. You need to arrange the Cobblestone or Blackstone in the 3×3 blocks in such a way that you leave the center position empty. After filling the crafting table correctly, the furnace will appear automatically. Now you can move the furnace to your inventory to use it for the smoker.

That’s all. Now that you have the furnace and the logs, let’s look at how to use them to create a smoker.
